Disney XD will present a ‘Night of Premieres’ on MONDAY, JUNE 21 (7:30-9:30 p.m., ET/PT) featuring new episodes of its top-rated series for kids and tweens. The night will kick off with back-to-back episodes of “Kick Buttowski-Suburban Daredevil,” guest-starring Adam Carolla as woodshop teacher One-Eyed Jackson, Simon Helberg (“The Big Bang Theory”) as physics nerd Ronaldo, Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested Development”) as a CEO and Emily Osment (“Hannah Montana”) in her recurring role as Kick’s nemesis, Kendall Perkins. Immediately following, a special hour-long episode of “Zeke and Luther” will debut with guest star French Stewart (“3rd Rock from the Sun”) as former skate pro and Garm Industries CEO Garm Garoosh.

The programming lineup is:

  • “Kick Buttowski – Suburban Daredevil” (7:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., ET/PT) – In “Exposed,” Kick loses his helmet and fears he’s lost his daredevil identity, even complimenting his nemesis, Kendall (Emily Osment). After Kick threatens to quit stunting forever, Gunther must find a way to convince his best friend that it’s the daredevil within that makes him awesome. In “Wade Against the Machine,” when Wade gets promoted to a corporate job, Kick will stop at nothing to get his buddy back to the Food N’ Fix where he belongs. Kick and Gunther go on a rescue mission to get Wade demoted, but their efforts are thwarted when the CEO (Jeffrey Tambor) keeps promoting him.
  • “Kick Buttowski – Suburban Daredevil” (8:00 p.m. -8:30 p.m., ET/PT) – In “Mellowbrook Drift,” Kick challenges a physics-obsessed street racing crew, led by bullying nerd Ronaldo (Simon Helberg), in a winner-takes-all race that pits the laws of physics against the laws of awesome. To defeat the competition, Kick and Gunther turn to school woodshop teacher One-Eyed Jackson (Adam Carolla) for help. In “Gift of Wacky,” tired of Wacky Jackie’s constant intrusions, Kick decides to get rid of her forever. Kick makes a deal with Brad, who promises to help find a gift for Jackie’s birthday. But when Kick realizes he is the only guest at her party, he decides to throw her the most awesome party ever.
