Synopsis

Gene Shalit (Eugene Levy) discusses overindulgence in America, as guest stars Orson Welles (really Dave Thomas), Shelley Winters (Robin Duke), and William Conrad (Tony Rosato) gorge themselves at Le Grand Cochon. Kanadian Korner hosts Bob and Doug McKenzie (Rick Moranis, Thomas) are forced to do their show outside when they're kicked out of the studio. David Brinkley (Moranis) pines for the good old days of "quality smoke." And news anchor Earl Camembert (Levy) arm-wrestles with Deborah "Spike " Milligan (Duke) from the feminist group W.A.S.A.S.L.
