One of the newest HBO series, Barry, set off on its maiden voyage recently. Joining it was a returning favorite, Silicon Valley, which kicked off its fifth season.
Fans of the shows, new and old, didn’t have to spend much time worrying about whether or not there would be future seasons, as HBO recently announced that they have ordered both Barry season two and Silicon Valley season six.
For the latest installment of their “Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know“ YouTube series, CineFix has dug up nine fun facts related to Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.
The animated movie starred and was co-written and co-directed by Mike Judge, and was based on his MTV animated comedy Beavis and Butt-Head. Some of the fun facts include voice actor cameos, problems with what producers wanted such as live-action over animated and Judge voicing the characters, and the always dreaded censorship (though it was probably for the best in this particular case).

One of the running jokes in Mike Judge’s cult classic comedy Office Space comes at the expense of the unfortunately named character Michael Bolton (played by David Herman).
Now Michael Bolton—the real Michael Bolton—has helped to recreate some of the scenes from Office Space with himself now playing the character Michael Bolton. Indeed, this is something you’d think would have happened many years ago, but hey, better late than never.

A pair of HBO’s 30-minute original comedy series have officially been given new seasons.
Silicon Valley, the new series from Office Space director and Beavis and Butt-Head and King of the Hill creator Mike Judge, has been given a second season order. The show follows a group of programmers trying to make it big in Silicon Valley, and is partially inspired by Judge’s own experiences working there as an engineer in the ’80s.
HBO’s Game of Thrones is more popular than ever, as it should be.
The numbers are in for the season four premiere of the show last night, and they’re big. The initial 9 p.m. broadcast scored 6.6 million viewers, up 2.2 million from the show’s season three premiere of 4.4 million.
Not only was this the most watched episode of Thrones so far, but it was also the second-most-watched episode of any HBO show, coming in right behind the 2007 series finale of The Sopranos, which landed 11.9 million viewers.
