Desperate to get a plasma TV, Homer enrolls the family in Fox's wife-swapping reality show.
* CargoShip: This episode pretty much canonizes Homer loving television more than his own family. He spends days at Lenny's place, cites TV as a reason to do the wife swap (even calling Lisa "[=TVsa=]"), and sings a song about him and television at the end.
* CelebrityParadox: Creator/DanCastellaneta is introduced as the star of ''The Tracey Ullman Show.''
* SelfDeprecatingHumor: Episode writer [[Creator/RickyGervais Ricky Gervais's]] character speaks in Gervais's trademark rambling manner. Homer isn't impressed.
-->'''Homer:''' You take forever to say nothing!
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: When Lenny gets a flat-screen TV, Homer stays parked on his couch for days. Lenny resorts to flicking lit matches at him to drive him out.
