"Rage Against the TV" is the eighth episode of season two (and twentieth episode overall) of Regular Show.
After the old TV breaks down, Mordecai and Rigby go looking for another TV to beat a seemingly impossible boss on a video game.
Mordecai and Rigby are playing a new side-scrolling beat 'em up game in which a heroic duo have to try and stop a villainous gang. After fighting past a tough enemy, they face the final boss: The Hammer. He is powerful enough to take of one of Mordecai and Rigby's lives with a single punch, and things look hopeless until the duo discover his weakness, which is being hit with furniture. Just as they're about to win, the TV goes black, and the picture only returns when Mordecai thumps the TV.
Realizing they need a new TV, they try to go to Skips for help, but he doesn't have a TV, and tells them to go to Pops; however, Pops doesn't have a TV either, but thinks an old-fashioned radio is a suitable replacement. They decide to get help from Muscle Man and Hi Five Ghost, and by describing the Hammer, they convince them to help. The two then break the TV by forgetting to unplug it when picking it up, leaving just one hope: Benson. Benson won't let them use his TV either.
The group see a commercial for discounted at the TV Store Warehouse; however, the only TV cheap enough is a small one with no sound or color. Muscle Man acquires it after helping an employee, Jimmy . They can only plug in the console with Skips' help and by using parts of other machines. When they finally get it working, the TV causes a blackout through the whole city. The TV comes to life, sprouting a body: in the TV is the face of The Hammer.
The Hammer goes on a rampage, even killing Jimmy. Mordecai, despite receiving a black eye, eventually remembers The Hammer's one weakness: being hit with furniture. He tells everyone else to throw furniture at The Hammer. With The Hammer weakened and restrained, Mordecai and Rigby grab the controllers from his hands and defeat him on his head-screen. This causes the power to be restored throughout the city.
The group are celebrating their victory when Benson comes with his TV to watch his shows, but when he sees the house a wreck and everybody looking injured, he silently leaves and closes the door behind them, looking rather disturbed. When he leaves, everybody goes back to celebration mode.
- Mordecai and Rigby get hit by The Hammer; they lose all health, but later then they have half health the health bar.
- The black and white TV changes to a color TV after they pin down The Hammer.
