In a behind the scenes look at the show, the cast members start to tell about their daily work lives, but soon everything still comes back to Peter being difficult. Unaware that he is being fired until a table read reveals that he is being killed off and replaced by David Spade as "Uncle Ricky," Peter takes his case to the producers who give him a second chance, only to have him be an ass once again and is kicked off the show for good.
The show then follows both the continued shooting of an episode with Spade becoming a hit, while Peter checks into a luxury hotel, picking up work in a commercial. When that fails to pan out, he is eventually kicked out of the hotel and takes up life in a dingy apartment. By the end of the week, Spade has lost his charm. Peter, determined to get his job back, pitches a show idea to the network electives and it is picked up for three seasons, allowing him access to the lot. He makes an appeal to the other cast and crew, and is accepted, even though they reveal that Peter is consistently fired and brought back each week, having forgotten the previous week.
