'Daria,' 'Beavis & Butt-Head' and More Return With '90s-Focused MTV Classic

MTV will head back to the past beginning Aug. 1 as VH1 Classic is renamed as MTV Classic, which will focus on beloved 1990s shows like "Beavis & Butt-Head," "Daria" and "Pimp My Ride."

Tied to the 35th anniversary of MTV, the rebranded channel will launch at 6 a.m. Aug. 1 with “MTV Hour One,” which replays the first hour of programming aired by the music channel in 1981. From there, it will deliver a retrospective of "Total Request Live," followed by an "Unplugged" marathon.

From 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Mondays through Thursday, MTV Classic will air such shows as "Daria, "Beavis & Butt-Head," "Aeon Flux," "Run's House," "Clone High," "Cribs," "Jackass" and "Pimp My Ride." Friday nights will be devoted to music, with reruns of "Unplugged," "Storytellers" and live performances. Weekends, meanwhile, will be devoted to marathons of "Real World," "Laguna Beach," "Road Rules" and the like.

In addition, the channel will carry movies, concerts and music videos from the past.
