KGB Yuri: After running a fied ad in a local Russian newspaper in New York and screening dozens of qualified applicants, TV Nation hires Yuri Shvets as its very own KGB spy. Yuri's first mission is to reassure us that President Nixon is indeed dead despite reports of Nixon's friends' surprise and disbelief at his passing. NEA: Many members of Congress want to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and let private enterprise pay for our artists and museums. TV Nation says, "Hey, not a bad idea!" and visits on a tour of those museums that currently thrive without a single penny from the NEA-the Kentucky Fried Chicken Museum, the Tobacco Art and History Museum, and the Sacred Arts Museum, where the tour guide looks like Jesus. A-Bomb: TV Nation visits an Idaho man who bought 750 tons of scrap metal at a government auction. To his surprise, when he got the scrap metal home it turned out to be makings of an atomic bomb factory. Jerusalem Syndrome: Each year millions of tourists visit the Holy Land. Occasionally, a few of them get off the tour bus and believe they are Jesus. Doctors in Jerusalem have named this phenomenon the "Jerusalem Syndrome." TV Nation walks the path of the prophets to investigate. Johns of Justice: There is always a long line snaking out of women's restrooms at theaters, concerts, sporting events, and even some workplaces. Can't we, by now, figure this out? Surely it's not because most of the builders, architects, and plumbers are men is it? TV Nation takes a flatbed truck, puts a half-dozen port-o-johns on it and takes the "Johns of Justice" to some of the worst offenders. Expand
