Storyline

Five hosts compete for airtime with the regular cast. Billy Crystal appears as Sammy Davis Jr. with Joe Piscopo's Frank Sinatra in the cold opening and as Fernando on Saturday Night News. Mayor Ed Koch plugs his book on "Mayor Koch's Neighborhood". Edwin Newman comes out of retirement to host Saturday Night News and appear on the 'Hello, Trudy!' show. Father Guido Sarducci does pre-recorded street interviews and is seen in a repeat of a commercial for " I got you Willie, I got you Guido' (with Jim Belushi as Willie Nelson). Betty Thomas joins a self defense class run by the Three Stooges. On top of that, Joel Hodgson does his act, Timothy Hutton cameos because he directed the video for The Car's song 'Drive' and dentist Ira Needleman (Gary Kroeger) turns his video dating video into a music video.
