Thursday, Dec. 23 at 10:30 p.m. – “Glennhog Day”

Nervous about being accepted at Glenn’s old summer camp, Conor reinvents himself as a tough guy from Boston.

Meanwhile, Glenn and Jackie serve as camp counselors after Glenn sends his former counselor, Gonzo (Bradley Whitford, The West Wing) into a deep depression. Later, while trying to build up Conor for the camp’s Color War, Glenn recounts the day he won the 10-mile race, only to learn his triumph was a cruel prank and must rerun the race against his nemesis Jimmy Kimmel.
