Episode Summary

EDIT
War Night
AIRED:
This Episode's Segments:
War Reenactment Night: TV Nation joins the guys who dress up on weekends and reenact Civil War battles. Only this time, we have them reenact more recent battles in full Civil War regalia-the fall of Saigon, the Battle of Hiroshima, the battle between Tom Arnold and Roseanne and the battle everyone wanted to see-the one that occurred when Elizabeth Hurley picked up Hugh Grant from London's Heathrow Airport.
Helltown: The Southern Baptist Church has published a map in Alabama showing which counties have the most residents who are "unsaved" and therefore doomed to the fires of hell. TV Nation travels to the county with the most "lost" souls and attempts to save them from eternal damnation.
Crackers -- Philly: Crackers the Corporate Crime-Fighting Chicken heads to Philadelphia in search of corporate wrongdoing. Hundreds of TV Nation fans how up to give him tips, one of which particularly ruffles Crackers' feathers: Philadelphia banks charge up to $30 for bounced check fees even if you are not responsible for bouncing the check. Crackers investigates the tip and takes action.
Electronic Sniffer: Just when you thought machines had replaced everyone-now comes the electronic nose. Around the world thousands of people are employed by companies to test the smell of new products, whether peasant or not. These employees sniff the interiors of new cars, luggage and clothing. They also smell the effects of deodorant, air freshener, and other products designed to cover up bad odors. But recently two companies in Great Britain developed an electronic nose that can do the same job. TV Nation visits these companies and the employees who will be displaced and challenges the electronic and human sniffers to go "nose-to-nose."
Cobb: Cobb County, Georgia is the home of the "Republican Revolution" of 1994, the home district of House Speaker Newt Gingrich whose political agenda calls for cutting fraud, federal spending, and getting big government "off our backs." TV Nation travels to Cobb and discovers Newt's district is the 3rd largest receiver of federal funds. Therefore, we try to get the government off Cobb's back by closing its federally-funded highway, their federally-funded schools, their federally-funded sewage system, and their federally-funded senior center. TV Nation meets the man himself, Newt Gingrich, at the 4th of July parade and encourages his leadership in helping Cobb relieve itself of the burden of federal funds.
School of Americas: The United States has established a school in Georgia to train Latin American soldiers in the art of "population control." It's called School of the Americas. A number of Latin American "strongmen" (Manuel Noriega, for example) have received their education compliments of the American taxpayer.
Widgery: Did you ever wonder if the polls that appear on TV Nation are real? Many viewers do. So we introduce our viewers to Widgery and Associates, the legitimate polling firm that polls for TV Nation.moreless
