Sammy Maudlin (Joe Flaherty) generously welcomes back his repentant sidekick William B (John Candy), whose own starring series literally went up in flames the previous week. Sammy's guest this evening is Hill Street Blues star Betty Thomas, who brings along clips from her new picture "South Sea Sinner" -- a devastatingly accurate spoof of the 1949 Shelley Winters film of the same name. Other highlights include "The Women Donahue Forgot"; James Whitmore (Flaherty) in "Give Em Hell, Larry," a one-man show celebrating the comedy genius of The Three Stooges' Larry Fine; "Jackie We Hardly Knew Ye," with Jackie Rogers Jr. (Martin Short) as Jackie Rogers Sr.; Episode 11 of "Days of the Week," and the Schmenge Brothers (Eugene Levy, Candy) celebrating "Miss Leutonia Pageant Week" with plenty of coffee, cabbage rolls, and polka tunes.
