While Jamie is in character as the acting coach, he tells his students that he can get them "a two-line part on Saved By The Bell." Ha, ha, very funny, but that series' last incarnation, Saved By The Bell: The New Class, has been out of production since 1999. Is Jamie offering his students a chance to be on one of Bell's satirical rehashes on The Rerun Show?
Brad Gluckman: (to the classical pianist) You good. You Dope-zart. You Bomb-adeus. You all dat and a bag of classical chips.
For the first season, I combined the writer's credits from the actual episodes and the WB's website for my entries here. No more, I say! This season, I am using only the writer's (and director's) credits from the actual episodes, unless otherwise noted.
A couple of notes about the second skit: I got the spelling of Giuliana's name by turning on the closed-captioning. For all I know, it could actually be spelled "Julianna." Also, Don recognizes Jamie and figures out he's being X-ed. This is the second time in the series that such a thing happened.
Chris Tallman's name was removed from the title sequence, which is just as well--I don't think most JKX viewers ever even knew who he was.
Starting with this episode, Jamie got a new set and a new time slot: Thursday at 9 PM. This time slot was deadly for Jamie, as he kept getting trounced in the ratings by everyone else, especially 9 PM powerhouses CSI and Will and Grace. Still, his viewership remained on par with that of the first season.
