Count Floyd (Joe Flaherty) really has to pump up his phony enthusiasm when "Monster Chiller Horror Theater" is consigned to broadcast "Ingmar Bergman's Whispers of the Wolf," starring those celebrated Swedish actresses Catherine O'Hara and Andrea Martin. Elsewhere, rumors are rampant that SCTV is haunted; Melonville's Mayor Shanks (John Candy) generously demonstrates his deteriorating mental state in another fireside chat; and host Chuck Clark (Flaherty) skewers Governor Gerry Brown (Dave Thomas) on "Fourth Degree." Plus: Billy Sol Hurok (Candy) and Big Jim McBob (Flaherty) are delighted when the guest speaker on "Words to Live By" blows up real good!
