35mm presentation - Television executive R.J. Fletcher (Kevin McCarthy) tries to sabotage the wild success of a rival low-rent, wacky station run by slovenly dreamer George Newman (Weird Al Yankovic) and Bob (David Bowe) -- leading to a telethon showdown. Only George's on-air local misfits can help save the day. Jay Levey directs, and Victoria Jackson, Stanley Brock and Michael Richards co-star in this daring, out-there, over-the-top comedy.
