Top Five Unforgettable MTV Duos
|Beavis and Butthead|
This week, MTV premiered its new show "Nikki & Sara LIVE." A fun skewering of pop culture, the show continues in the tradition of razor-sharp wit and disarming charm from buddy-outings that has brought some of the most fun moment of original programming for almost the channel's entire existence. Being that we at the Weekly always want our MTV, we decided now would be a great time to look back at some of our all time favorite MTV duos!
5. Ken Ober and Colin Quinn of "Remote Control" 1987
MTV's first attempted venturing outside of standard music programming with its inventive game show "Remote Control." Fitting with the network's rebellious spirit, "Remote Control" rewarded contestants and viewers at home for possessing a level of pop culture knowledge that most would discard as "Trivial." Keeping things on track were announcer Colin Quinn and late host Ken Ober. Their natural chemistry maintained a strong aura for the show, which also launched the careers of Denis Leary and Adam Sandler.
4. Beavis and Butthead of "Beavis and Butthead" 1992
One of the most controversial shows ever aired, MTV's "Beavis and Butthead" gained quite the legacy during its five year run. While it offended parents and earned a fair amount of political ire, it also found fans worldwide including David Letterman and eventually snowballed into a franchise that could support a feature-length motion picture. Whether you think it's the best smart-dumb show or the best dumb-smart show, it was the right skewering of a generation at the perfect time.
