Welcome to Hell, USA. This charming little town with the devilish name is the setting for COMEDY CENTRAL's "Thanksgiving Parade from Hell," a wacky parade with Beth Littleford, Rob Huebel and Scott Adsit as the outrageous hosts. This year's "ThanXgiveaway Weekend" will center around the annual "Thanksgiving Parade from Hell" and its surrounding hoopla.

"Thanksgiving Parade from Hell" kicks-off with our star commentators and well-meaning but berserk sideline reporters Littleford, Huebel and Adsit cover the hellacious parade ? not in a fire and brimstone way, but in a "I can't believe you actually call this a parade" way. Viewers will meet the residents from Hell, the Xbox 360? float, a tricked-out Scion xB as well as see various "acts" and parade participants playing out their routines in front of the grandstand.

"Thanksgiving Parade from Hell" coverage can be seen from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. all weekend long.
