Storyline

The host for the episode is Ted Knight, and the musical guest is Desmond Child & Rouge. The skits for this episode are as follows: The Shah of Iran opens the show with a Christmas greeting for everyone. A secretary goes before the company grievance board to complain about the blatant sexual harassment her boss has been subjecting her to. New York policeman Bob Kopp offers some Christmas advice for everyone to watch their belongings, keep an eye on their wallets, get out of the way and mind their own business if they know what's good for them. A man almost throws his life away on a coffee addiction, but gets help by checking into rehab at Maxwell House. Lisa Loopner and Todd DiLaMuca take part in their school Christmas pageant. Andy Kaufman tries his hand at wrestling women again. Desmond Child & Rouge perform "Tumble In The Night" and "Goodbye Baby". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

The "Nerds Christmas Pageant" sketch started a heated battle between the show and NBC's Standards & Practices. NBC officials were vehemently against the sketch which they believed spoofed the birth of Christ. The battled continued until just before the sketch began when the show relented and made changes to the script. See more »
