Synopsis

It doesn't look like Moe Green will ever come back, so Edith Prickley (Andrea Martin), leopard coat and all, takes over as station manager, with the blessing of owner Guy Caballero (Joe Flaherty). But that blessing becomes a curse when Edith announces her plans to change the face of SCTV with "boobs, buns, good-looking hunky guys, and no more sports!!" Also on tonight's schedule: Jeff Edwards (Eugene Levy) hosts the lethal game show "Shoot at the Stars," with celebrities John Rutter (Dave Thomas), Chalo (Martin), and Robert Groulet (Flaherty) running for their lives; anchorman Earl Camembert (Levy) delivers a blistering editorial about his bad neighbors; and the Movie of the Week, "Jaws 23 Part 1," reaches its crisis point when Amity runs out of sharks and begins hunting mackerel.
