Summary, etc.: "'Weird Al' Yankovic, Kevin McCarthy (Innerspace), Michael Richards (Seinfeld), David Bowe (The Cable Guy), Victoria Jackson (Saturday Night Live) and Fran Drescher (The Nanny) star in this inspired comedy about an offbeat guy who turns a deadbeat TV station into a raging success! Broadcasting Weird Al's unique brand of humor, UHF is a place you'll want to visit- with increasing frequency. George Newman (Weird Al) is a daydreamer whose hyperactive imagination keeps him from holding a steady job...until his uncle hires him to manage Channel 62, a station that's losing money and viewers fast. But when George replaces the station's reruns with bizarre programs like 'Wheel of Fish' and 'Raul's Wild Kingdom' (where poodles fly from third-story windows), ratings begin to soar! Can George find the money he needs to stay on the air? Stay tuned!"--Container.
