When Duffman undergoes hip replacement surgery and retires, the company sets up a reality show competition to find his replacement. Homer wins the competition, and because the job requires him to stay sober, he learns that beer isn’t as necessary as he thought to have a good time.
Oh boy, temporarily sober Homer wins a reality show. Apparently the guest voice is Cat Deeley, who is the host of an actual FOX reality show, according to my wife.
I am not planning on watching this crap tonight, as watching the preview clips was awful enough, but I am going to go out on a limb and state that there is no way all of the humor in this entire episode will add up to the scene from “Duffless” where Homer gets kicked out of AA for eating the dirt under the bleachers. Neither will the combined visual comedy from this entire episode reach a level that will compare to seeing Homer shakily scratch off day 30 on his calendar during that same episode. By the way, I really like “Duffless”.
