Paramount is readying itself against the anger of late-night couch potatoes everywhere, after canceling the release of THE HISTORY OF BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD, which was supposed to hit stores NEXT WEEK!!! No word as to why it has been cancelled, but apathetic teenage boys are said to be ‘agitated to the point of movement’.

How the world does turn… On a slightly off-topic note…
CBS has picked up MY BIG FAT GREEK FAMILY as a midseason replacement show, after summarily turning down the pilot last spring. FAMILY is basically the continuing story of the characters from this summers indie supersmash MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING. Now that that film is on route to becoming one of the most profitable of all time, CBS has changed their minds. The pilot was shot with a different actor in the part of creator-star Nia Vardalos’ husband, but negotiations are underway to bring John Corbett, who plays the part in the film, to the cast of the TV show.
