Super Into – Monday, December 21 at 10:30 p.m ET/PT
Hosted by Kevin Pereira (Hack My Life), Super Into is a series that asks our favorite celebrities to take us inside their private passions –from Rob Corddry and astronomy, including a ride on a zero gravity plane, to Diablo Cody and roller coasters. This fun and raucous ride not only lets viewers see how each celeb geeks out on everything from sneakers to marijuana to motorcycles, but each episode is packed with short animations and stylized videos that will dive even deeper into the cool history, science and psychology behind each topic. Additional celeb guest stars include Michelle Rodriguez (motorcycles), Margaret Cho (marijuana), Kesha (animal conservation) and Nick Young (sneakers).
Super Into with Nick Young: LA Lakers shooting guard, Nick Young, has an obsession for sneakers. An obsession so enormous that he’s dedicated an entire guest house at his home to accommodating the hundreds of sneakers in his possession. Watch what happens when Kevin goes with Nick to commission a pair of custom kicks from a renowned designer. Will the resulting unique sneaks be worthy of the one and only Swaggy P?

SEASON FINALE – Adam Ruins Everything – Tuesday, December 22, at 10:00p.m ET/PT
In Adam Ruins Everything, host Adam Conover employs a combination of comedy, history and science to dispel widespread misconceptions about everything we take for granted. A perfect blend of entertainment and enlightenment, Adam Ruins Everything is inviting, fast-paced and, above all, smart. Adam is like that friend who knows a little bit too much about everything and is going to tell you about it…whether you like it or not. Adam Ruins Everything isn’t just fun to watch, but addictively informative. It’s everything you didn’t want to need to know. Produced by Big Breakfast, the show was born out of a popular CollegeHumor original series that has generated more than 30 million views since premiering online with the video “Why Engagement Rings Are a Scam” in early 2014.
Adam Ruins Death: In tonight’s season finale, Adam explains that “the end” is inevitable; it’s a reality that should be accepted and embraced. He shows why immortality is a fantasy and reveals that the American funeral industry is a racket that exploits mourners’ grief and fear of dying. He then demonstrates that when people don’t accept death, they wind up making terrible medical decisions that ruin whatever life is left.
