Maybe it won’t boast the same perennial power as the Grinch, but Oklahoma City’s 2 Movie Guys are getting their very own Christmas special, Charlie Brown!
“2 Movie Guys’ Intergalactic Holiday Showdown” features KAUT-TV 43’s weekly host duo
of Ryan Bellgardt and Lucas Ross, here being abducted by aliens who mistake them as leaders of Earth. (As if!) Awaiting them in space are as many CGI creatures as a $500 budget will allow. Guest starring is local legend John Ferguson, aka Count Gregore, as the “not-so-evil Duke of Mukedon.”
“2MGIHS” — as it would appear in marketing, if this were a studio tentpole — is set to air at 5 p.m. Christmas night on KFOR-TV 4, and again as part of a two-hour 2 Movie Guys marathon on KAUT that begins at 6 p.m.
As part of that marathon, the comedy team’s three previous specials will re-air, featuring appearances by Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Conan O’Brien, Michael Caine, The All-American Rejects, the Oklahoma City Thunder Girls, B.J. Wexler, Bart Conner, Nadia Comaneci, Linda Cavanaugh, Kevin Ogle and killer robots.
You’ve been pwned, Tim Allen. (Not that you weren’t already.) —Rod Lott
