A Brand New Day
With Pat O’Brien on vacation, Mark McGrath fills in as Derrick’s cohost. But things go awry when Hollywood goes on strike, and a disgruntled millitant holds the studio hostage. The show draws to a dramatic conclusion, and someone dies.
With no entertainment news to report, Derrick, Pat, and special guest human-blooper Perry Caravello dedicate this episode to fun -- except things get tense, and Anastasia makes Perry cry in front of a real doctor.
