Storyline

The host for the episode is Chevy Chase (his third appearance as host), and the musical guest is Queen. The skits for this episode are as follows: Chevy Chase announces from a TV screen that because of a missed flight, he will have to host the show via satellite from California. He prepares to begin the first skit, but a stagehand accidentally knocks over his TV. For his opening monologue, Chevy speaks from a broken TV at the foot of the stage. Angry young artist and poet Tyrone Green displays his hatred of white people through his art at a gallery packed with white art connoisseurs. Joe Piscopo confesses his love for Rose Kennedy and asks her to marry him. John Hinckley announces his campaign for the presidency from his hospital cell. A mystery show presents a scene about a woman being accosted by a land shark that turns out to be on a video screen. Inventor Ron Popiel presents the Galactic Prophylactic, made of rubber and steel and guaranteed to last for fifty years. David Letterman... Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quotes

Chevy Chase: I was so... moved... and honored... uh... when they asked me to host this season's, uh... very first show. I don't know what to say, I'm almost in tears! But I was, uh, somewhat surprised to find, uh, that the show is still, uh... well... still done live from New York City. I'm happy. It's my town, and it's my people. And we're still giving great comedy from the Big Apple, great comedy right from the Big Apple right out to the little fruits there in Hollywood. Huh!
