Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Desperate for a filler host after Larry falls ill shortly before air, Artie (Rip Torn) reluctantly agrees to do something he swore never to do -- let Hank (Jeffrey Tambor) host the show. Hank is elated but somewhat hesitant for fear of failure, but his insecurity ultimately endears him to the audience and his appearance is a success. Empowered by his previous success, Hank takes the stage when Larry calls in sick again the following night, though his newfound confidence results in an arrogant stint that leaves everyone with a bad taste in their mouths. Guest stars include Shadoe Stevens and George Wendt.
