SUMMARY:  Five-year-old Elizabeth hosts a talk show from her indulgent parents' home.  Middle-aged Arthur, hating his life, and sleeping on her parents' couch while he goes through a divorce, provides her theme song.  After talking about the banning of Happy Meals in San Francisco and the miners in Chile, and writing an angry letter to the school board, she welcomes her first guests: Ann Coulter and Harry Reid.  Elizabeth wants to know why Ann is so angry.  Reid, oddly, agrees with Ann about the Democrats being out of touch.  It turns out that "Harry" is really Elizabeth's brother Andy in a wig, hired by Ann, so Elizabeth sends Ann to her room to think about what she's done.

Meet Elizabetn (Rebecca Larsen). Elizabeth's parents ask her not to talk about poop. 'Nobody's gonna watch your stupid show anyway,' says Elizabeth's 'stupid brother,' Andy (Ari Radousky). Guests Ann Coulter (Lisa Anne Nicolai) and Harry Reid (Ari Radousky).

SUMMARY:  Andy is allowed to co-host with Elizabeth for not being blabby. She then takes a call from a viewer and gives him advice on getting his parents to give him a puppy. Suddenly, popular girl Macey - Elizabeth's enemy - arrives. It seems Andy has a crush on her and let her in. Elizabeth then interviews guest Dick Cheney and tells him jokes.

SUMMARY:  Elizabeth goes to the mall to see Santa. Arthur's piano is gone... "They came and they took it."  He's utterly demoralized. Macey's there, too, but not to see Santa.  She says Santa's for babies, so Elizabeth blows off steam by writing Macey an angry letter about being mean to people.  Arthur asks Santa for a full-time job.  Andy suddenly decides he doesn't want to meet Santa... thanks to Macey, he suddenly thinks it's just "kids' stuff."  Elizabeth asks Santa to help her friends.  Doesn't she want anything for herself?  She wants to help.  Santa tells her to just always tell the truth.; even one small voice telling the truth is the most powerful thing there is.  As carolers sing "O Silent Night," Elizabeth wishes us all a Merry Christmas.

SUMMARY:  Elizabeth is offered a show on FOX News, but gets a nasty shock when she finds they want her to co-host with Macey... and they don't want Arthur on the show. Furthermore, the show is re-titled "Little Tea Party." Elizabeth is about to take a principled stand and walk when she finds out that her first guest will be... Sarah Palin.

Dad (Eric Curtis Johnson) gets a call from FOX News. Phil Turner (Joseph Beck) offers her a show for 12 million adults 'with a kindergarten education.' 'I'm not in kindergarden.'  'No problem, we'll dumb it down - we're set up for that.' On the set with Margaret as her 'manager.' Oh no - Macey is her co-host! This isn't fun anymore.

SUMMARY:  Phil presents the girls with a long list of questions not to ask Sarah Palin.  Macey knows exactly what sort of questions to ask... like, "Why does the liberal media hate women so much?"  During the commercial break, Sarah Palin loses her patience with Elizabeth's attempts to ask hardball questions and warns her that what the GOP's got planned while she's got the country distracted will make her look like Mother Teresa.  After the show, a sad Elizabeth, unhappy with the price of her new wealth and fame, calls Arthur for comfort.  She's purchased him a new piano, and he sings her a bittersweet song ("This Piano Is Magic").

The show is about to begin. A huge list of questions not to ask Sarah Palin. Macey is smug.  Elizabeth is angry. Sarah's ready for her interview, you betcha! Macey sympathizes with Sarah - sometimes people hate you just 'cause you're pretty. Elizabeth attempts to ask the tough questions. Sarah lays it on the line for Elizabeth. Elizabeth's lost and out of place. A sad Elizabeth calls Arthur.  (see video) Arthur sings her a song. (see video)


Elizabeth's newfound fame and wealth isn't making her happy, and
so she calls Arthur, who sings her a song ("This Piano Is Magic").
