In the first segment of the program, host Michael Moore, in his role as a corporate cop, visits Harrison Research Group, a corporation accused of testing illegal insecticides on humans. Moore attempts to speak to the CEO, but is asked to leave the premises. He returns with Crackers, the corporate crime-fighting chicken, who attempts to sign up for the testing program. Throughout the show, different groups try out for Moore's job. The "Replacement Mike" challenge is to visit a corporation accused of wrongdoing and attempt to see the CEO. The first group, a number of kindergartners, take over the company's lobby, but fail to meet the president. The second group, three women dressed in lingerie, speak to a manager who promises to make an appointment for them. Finally, an Awful Truth correspondent serves as the guide for the "Forbidden Fruit Tour" of New York, visiting less-celebrated sections of the city.
