In t-minus six days, the guys who once called Pavement out on not trying hard enough will be back cornholio’ing our hearts all over again. I am, of course, talking about Beavis and Butt-head, the fire-and-boob loving stars of Beavis and Butt-head Do America. Oh yeah, and they also had that TV show, which ran on MTV from 1993-1997. It’ll be a welcome return not only for fans of the show, but also those who loved MTV’s slate of animated programming in the 1990s and 2000s. Let’s take a look at what the creators of Beavis and Butt-head, Daria, Celebrity Deathmatch, and 3 South are up to today.
Following in the long line of American Splendor and Funny People, the "cancer comedy" 50/50 is released in theaters today. It's written by Will Reiser, who was diagnosed with cancer in his 20s, and stars Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, or JGL for short. JGL's been in the public eye since the late 1980s, when he appeared in a number of made-for-TV movies and in two episodes of Family Ties. But his biggest break-out moment came when he was cast on 3rd Rock from the Sun, about a family of aliens living on Earth.

But that's really not important to the story.
Well, the very next year he met a dental hygienist with a spatula tattooed on her [...]
Whatever happened to predictability, the milkman, the paperboy, evening TV…and the talent behind all your favorite Muppets, and some you've forgotten, on The Muppet Show?
“Dad, what’s a Muppet?” “Well, it’s not quite a mop and it’s not quite a puppet, but man…so to answer your question, I don’t know.” Oh, but don’t worry Lisa, unlike Homer, we know that a Muppet, a word first used in 1956, is a combination of “marionette” and “puppet.” And since 1955, when Kermit the Frog showed up on Sam and Friends, the first of dozens of Jim Henson productions, the Muppets have appeared in TV shows, movies, books, toys, clothing lines, and [...]
Whatever happened to predictability, the milkman, the paperboy, evening TV…and the girlfriends and lovers of George Costanza?
One of Seinfeld’s best unexplained jokes was why dozens of attractive women would fall for guys like Jerry and George. Especially George. (I get the Kramer thing.) With the exception of Susan, who lasted longer than any female should want to in the company of George, seemingly every episode brought a new girlfriend or lover for the diminutive, balding, angry, Yankees-employed momma’s boy.
