LARRY SANDERS SHOW, THE: THE GRAND OPENING (TV)

Summary

One in this comedy series starring Garry Shandling as Larry Sanders, a late-night talk show host. In this episode, Larry is on vacation and Martin Mull guest hosts. Meanwhile, opening night at Hank's new restaurant draws near and he keeps peppering the show with mentions of it. Hank offends Mull, and Artie has to scramble to find another guest host. With no other choice, Artie turns to a vacationing Larry who gets Burt Reynolds to guest host. Meanwhile, Hank is stressed out as he can't get any one to attend his opening night.
