With that will come a flood of nostalgic programming for Gen-Xers, including "Beavis & Butt-head" and its spin-off, "Daria," as well as "MTV Unplugged," highlights from "TRL," and, of course, videos from back in the day.
MTV said in a statement that the new channel will boast "an eclectic mix of fan-favorite MTV series and music programming drawn from across its rich history, with a special focus on the 1990s and early 2000s."
Everything old is new again starting when MTV Classic re-airs MTV Hour One -- the influential network's first-ever hour of programming -- at 12:00 p.m. EST Aug. 1. That will also be simulcast on Facebook.
Other shows that will find a home on the network include the groundbreaking animated sci-fi show "Aeon Flux," plus "Run’s House," "Pimp My Ride," "Jackass," "Cribs" and "Punk’d."
