Storyline

The host and musical guest for the episode is Frank Zappa (his second appearance, the first as host). The skits for this episode are as follows: NBC President Fred Silverman opens the show by announcing that all of their viewer research indicates that everyone wants to see more Frank Zappa, so the network is signing Zappa to an extended TV contract. Zappa performs "Dancing Fool" for his opening monologue and picks up a member of the audience to go home with. Connie Conehead has a date with Frank Zappa, so Beldar helps to entertain while Connie gets ready to go out. During the Weekend Update, Father Guido Sarducci reports on the latest developments from The Vatican. Mr. Bill moves into his new home, but is soon mangled by Sluggo and Mr. Hands. Frank Zappa performs "Meek" and "Rollo". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
