The eleventh episode is the best so far; for once the main plot is as funny as the miscellaneous bits

Today's lesson: "Whenever you are in any type of competition, it is always important to play fair."

Weird Al is competing with Uncle Ralphie for the Best TV Show Host award. Both Al and Ralphie try to sabotage each other's show to win it. Al even kidnaps the kiddie rock band Radish, which was supposed to appear on Ralphie's show. Uncle Ralphie fights back by parodying the parodist. Then things get violent. Meanwhile, Madame Judy makes a worthless prediction. The guy Al boarded up in the wall wants to watch TV. Val Brentwood, Gal Spy, fights on Al's side. Mippy the Clown is forced to watch Pauly Shore movies. Fred Willard finds nothing cute about hitting squirrels. Harvey the Wonder Hamster hang glides.

What's on Al TV? Fred Huggins makes one of his puppets vomit. Tony Maloney is a too loose-limbed exercise show host.

For once, the main plot is as funny as the miscellaneous bits, partly because Jack Plotnick as Uncle Ralphie is pretty funny. By the way, nothing is wrong with your DVD's audio. Radish's song about "little pink stars" was bleeped out by the censors in the original broadcast.
