"Rats, Kate's Dating a Wrestler" (TV-PG, D)
Kate dates a professional wrestler who is promoting Buzz Beer � Lewis (Ryan Stiles) cares for DrugCo's experimental, superintelligent rats in his apartment above the Warsaw Bar. When the rats escape and infiltrate the bar, it must close for health reasons. It is impossible to trap them or make them leave. Meanwhile, Drew (Drew Carey) realizes that the gang's Buzz Beer business will fail without the Warsaw's business. He hires a professional wrestler, The Disciplinarian (Hunter Hearst Helmsley), to promote Buzz Beer. Unfortunately, Kate (Christa Miller) dates The Disciplinarian, and he becomes a habitual drunk from drinking Buzz Beer at all his appearances. After a disastrous gambling trip with Kate that results in a media fiasco, The Disciplinarian publicly blames all his problems on Buzz Beer. Despite Drew's worries, the negative publicity only helps sales. Eventually, the Warsaw reopens, apparently without rodents. But the rats have actually hypnotized the bartender into helping them take over the human race. Written by Terry Mulroy & Christy Snell and directed by Steve Zuckerman (#467515).
