Dan finds a new niche in life as the host of a shock-TV show and Mac and Quon Le may lose out on their Graceland vacation.


Dan's girlfriend Margo (special guest star Susan Anton) convinces him to appear as a shock-host of a local TV talk show which she produces, which he invites Christine to appear on, only to anagonize, insult, and exploit her in order for the show to get high ratings, all in front of an ogling, mostly male audience, of course. Mac and Quon Le's planned vacation to Graceland encounters problems.
