Tim sends one of his typically off-color emails in response to the Raven's big win, and Joe is shocked to hear that Robby was actually repulsed by it.

The Academy Awards will be held in just a few weeks, and Michael Chamberlin returns to share his thoughts, make his predictions and generally get needled about his newest theatrical project and total obliviousness to Sunday's big game. Rob fails in his attempt to network with JB Smoove during his weekend of shows with the TV star. An ironically sober Rob observes other comics getting drunk at a show.
