Part I of "The Assholes Anthology" airs Sunday, November 19 (6:00 a.m. -11:55 p.m. ET); Part II airs Wednesday, November 22 (4:00 a.m. -11:45 p.m. ET) and Part III on Thursday, November 23 (2:00 a.m. -11:59 p.m. ET). The complete Anthology will be re-aired subliminally, 24 hours a day, everyday, throughout the months of December and January, underneath our regular programming.
