The eight different programs are Aesthletics, The Sitcom Set, Dial-A-Soap, Ecstatic Static, No News, Make Me Psychic, Cable Excess and Sketch Book. Each program will consist of a video screening followed by a talk show.

All you have to do is act naturally. Camera 1, Camera 2, Camera 1, Camera 2, Camera 3, Camera 3, the world arrives in starts and stanzas. Every house is filled with representatives.
