TV Watch List: Thursday, Oct. 27

“Beavis and Butt-head” are back on MTV.

‘Beavis and Butt-head’
COMEDY.
There’s a lot these two animated dopes have missed over the last 14
years (!) off the air: pop culture gems like “Jersey Shore,” “16 and
Pregnant” and the “Twilight” phenomenon, for starters. So when these two
icons of crude humor try catching up tonight, don’t be surprised when
they need serious medical attention after taking a page from the
Stephenie Meyer school of attraction — because they went in search for a
werewolf to bit them so they can nab hot chicks. Welcome back, boys.
Series
premiere, 10 p.m., MTV

‘Community’
COMEDY. It’s the community
college of horrors when the study group shares spooky tales that,
naturally, reveal way too much about each of their own fears and flaws.
8
p.m., NBC

‘The Office’
COMEDY. With that scary stare, we’re
pretty sure Robert California doesn’t need a costume for this year’s
Dunder Mifflin Halloween party.
9 p.m., NBC

‘It’s the Great
Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’

ANIMATED. Linus misses out on
trick-or-treating while waiting for the Great Pumpkin. It could’ve been
worse — he could’ve went trick-or-treating and got all rocks.
8 p.m.,
ABC
