Synopsis

Mr. Kessler (Rick Moranis) introduces SCTV's latest technological development, Two Way TV, which allows the folks at home to choose between "Wall Street Week," "Farm Report," "The Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood" and "Leave It to Beaver." SCTV News anchorman Earl Camembert (Eugene Levy) goes undercover to investigate the scourge of pit bull fighting -- and gets beaten up for his troubles. David Brinkley (Moranis) editorializes on his bad haircut. On "Kanadian Korner," the McKenzie brothers (Moranis, Dave Thomas) do animal imitations and choose their favorite musical groups. "Crazy Crafts" hostess Molly Earle (Robin Duke) demonstrates the various uses for things found in the city dump. And Count Floyd (Joe Flaherty) can't work up much enthusiasm for the latest attraction on "Monster Horror Chiller Theater" (this final sketch was removed from the U.S. syndicated version of this episode, replaced by a previously telecast bit in which Gregory Peck, played by Flaherty, stars in Taxi Driver).
