Episode Summary

When Rock notices that another heavy metal star has his own reality television show he calls his manager and demands a show about himself and his family. However, the cameras create anything but "reality" at the Zilla household. Everyone except Willy is constantly ‘on', performing extravagantly for the cameras. But though the rest of his family is thrilled by the publicity, Willy wishes the show and the attention would all go away. It's a total invasion of his privacy, and people follow him around like shadows, hoping to get their 15 minutes of fame. Things get worse when the broadcaster's focus groups show that the audience likes Willy the best, identifying with his attempts at normality amid the insanity of the Zilla household - making the cameras follow Willy even more closely, and making the rest of the family a little jealous of Willy's fame. Desperate to get his life back to "normal", Willy, Quincy and Alissa, come up with a plan; together they create an over-the-top character ‘Lil-A-Zilla. Willy lays on the faux urban attitude thick for the cameras. The audience is turned off, and smelling a contrived set-up, the TV people shut down the production. Willy is thrilled, and, no longer tailed by hangers-on, celebrates the end of his fame with his two best friends, Alissa and Quincy.moreless
