The eighth episode gives the spotlight to Danielle Weeks, who does a good job; otherwise, a so-so episode from a so-so series

What's on Al TV? A game show contestant is forced to spin the wheel over and over. "Celebrity Close-up" gets too close to Clint Eastwood. An anchorman promises to show the five shiny objects in his coat pocket. A weather girl gets carried away with her pointer.

Danielle Weeks as Cousin Corky gets the spotlight in this episode, and she does such a good job that we wish she had a bigger role in the series as a whole. Al's mom is played by his real-life mom, Mary Yankovic, and she gives the kind of performance you'd expect from someone's mom.
