Storyline

The host for the episode is Jamie Lee Curtis, and the musical guests are James Brown and Ellen Shipley. The skits for this episode are as follows: The Mean Majority explain how things are going to change now that their man has won the presidency. For her opening monologue, Jamie Lee Curtis obliges the audience by screaming in terror. Over the course of the show, Brooke Shields gives three vacuous endorsements for Clovin Hind jeans. Jersey Guy Paulie Herman encounters a three-card monte dealer on the street. Two poetesses make their work famous by the only means available to them: committing suicide on live television. A public service announcement warns viewers of the dangers of playing poker while high on pot. Members of the Badgers Club get together to celebrate berating random people and insulting their waitress. An aspiring photographer plots to blow up the Statue of Liberty so he can take an award-winning photo. James Brown performs "Rapp Payback", plus a medley of his older hits...
