Storyline

In the comedy segment, Johnny first describes various series announced by the networks for the fall season; he then shows stills depicting pilots rejected by the networks. Sylvester Stallone comes out with his six-year-old son, Sage. He discusses making "Rocky III", particularly the difficult training periods, and how Mr. T and Hulk Hogan were cast. He also notes that his brother Frank, who was very critical of the previous two movies, liked this one more. A clip of the fight scene between him and Hulk Hogan is shown. Steve Martin talks about his new film "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" while claiming to hate coming on the show to promote a film; he says that he doesn't care how well the movie does as long as audiences enjoy it, then interrupts the interview to feign taking a phone call in which he meticulously inquires about local box-office figures. There is quite a lot of friendly banter between him and Stallone. A clip from Martin's film is also shown. Written by lenab9011
