This year's SCTV election coverage focuses on the Melonville mayoral battle between incumbent Tommy Shanks (John Candy) and washed-up celebrity Vic Hedges (Joe Flaherty). In another hotly contested race, feminist chat show host Libby Wolfson (Andrea Martin) becomes "one with the people" in her race against opponent Robert Wellesly (played by a pre-Sledge Hammer! David Rasche) Elsewhere, The Happy Wanderers -- aka Stan and Yosh Schmenge (Eugene Levy, John Candy) -- don Superman costumes and shark masks for their musical tribute to "John Villiams." And musical guest Linda Hopkins promotes her latest picture "Balconies of Paradise" and fields irrelevant and largely idiotic questions from host Brock Linehan (Martin Short) on "Stars in One."
