Dick Daring hosts a 1970's-style Christmas variety show, produced, directed and co-starred by Riley. In his opening monologue, the patriarch of the Darings theorizes that Santa Claus is in fact a stuntman, which he describes in song in a rewrite of "O Come All Ye Faithful." Todd tries to make some money with his own telethon and later gets to perform his own twisted version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Buzz struggles to get Riley to give him permission to read some Christmas-related poetry on the show. Special guests include Carson Palmer, a reluctant Josh Duahmel, and Ed Begley, Jr. who preaches environmentalism. Dustin Dreamlake sings his new hit "Get My Santa On," Buzz Winters tries to read The Night Before Christmas on the show, Agent K tries (and fails) to hide her identity, and Dick performs an elaborate all-star stunt salute to the holidays.
