NEW YORK, N.Y. (October 10, 2011)—MTV2 will offer MALE-ENNIALS the ultimate guide to the laws of manhood with the premiere of the original weekly series “MTV2’s Guy Code” on Tuesday, November 15th at 11 pm ET/PT.
In this weekly half-hour comedic series, viewers will learn the ins and outs of the special code that exists between bros, told through talking-head style commentators, absurd humor, and funny and inappropriate animation. The show will feature today’s pop culture entertainers, top comics, athletes and specialized experts, to unearth the rules for any and every situation in life, from man-scaping to man-crushes, strip clubs to sexting, bottle-service to karaoke etiquette, and many more. In addition, celebs will share what makes a “Good Ass Night”, and the show will profile guys who’ve managed to land the “Best Job Ever.”
