A committee investigating TV's first uncensored network examines a typical day's programming, which includes shows, commercials, news programs, you name it. What they discover will surely crack you up! This outrageous and irreverent spoof of television launched the careers of some of the greatest comedians of all time.Written by
The earlier release on Media in 1978 uses an exceedingly scratchy print and has two segments missing that are viewable on the later Harmonyvision release. They are, respectively, a proctology TV ad (that appears just after the Midas Touch Cleaning Fluid ad) and the "Convert. The Church Is Changing" spot, which appears towards the film's end (right after the Dinner Bars commercial). The latter spot features a woman, dressed as a priest, stripping in front of a church window. The former features a line of bare men's bottoms. It isn't clear why these scenes are missing (the film is still pretty explicit without them), but both are entact on the later Harmonyvision release, which also boasts a much-better source print.

lousy short comedy skits that forget to be funny, and lots of bigotry
I missed the beginning but I did see most of it. A friend got it on DVD in the cheap room at FYE.
The skits are all very short, and yet most of them are still too long. The majority of them, they seem to have forgotten to have something funny! Quite a lot of racist/sexist/"homophobic" humor in it, skits based on stereotypes, or skits which use racist terms for people.
I'm trying to remember anything I thought was funny in it, and I'm having trouble.... The logo for the Tunnel Vision network is a lipsticked mouth with an eyeball in it. The mouth opens and closes over the eye like eyelids. Kind of creepy.
What a disappointment. Most of the actors went on to better things, and it's lucky this bomb didn't hold them back.
