Plot Summary

  • The host for the episode is Kate Jackson, and the musical guest is Delbert McClinton. The skits for this episode are as follows: Network president Fred Silverman appears on Charlie's Angels where he reveals that he's a covert operative for ABC who has been deliberately sabotaging the network with terrible programming decisions, and then shares his plans with the angels for further damaging NBC's remaining popular shows. During Kate Jackson's monologue, she mentions that she used to be an NBC studio tour guide, and is then interrupted by a tour group passing through the studio. Lisa Loopner is upset to discover that Todd DiLaMuca has a crush on her mother's nurse. Fred Silverman reveals his new programming line-up, which includes giving more prime-time slots to McLean Stevenson and Tom Snyder, and having Rip Taylor anchor the evening news. During the Weekend Update, Roseanne Roseannadanna reports on the new King Tut exhibit, and Father Guido Sarducci talks about a UFO sighting. Andy Kaufman yodels while playing the bongos. When Kate tells Fred Silverman how dedicated and idealistic the rest of the SNL cast is, and how their principles are inspiring her to do more than just lowest-common-denominator television, Fred slaps her to bring her back to reality. Leonard Plinth-Garnell reviews bad cabaret for children. Mr. Bill takes up exercise, but gets pounded by his trainer, Sluggo. The Coneheads go to the movies, but Beldar freaks out after another moviegoer passes him a joint. Delbert McClinton performs "B Movie Box Car Blues" and "Talkin' About You".
