The return of Beavis and Butt-Head pulled a strong premiere rating Thursday night.

And, yes, I just wrote “pulled.” The animated comedy delivered 3.3 million viewers. Obviously that’s not nearly what Jersey Shore gets in this spot — nobody would expect Beavis to do anywhere near that level. But among the network’s 12-34 target demo, the rating was second only to Jersey Shore among the network’s lineup this year. New animated comedy Good Vibes didn’t perform so well, dropping to 1.6 million viewers.
