First Aired: June 5, 2005
Plot: Meg asks Craig Hoffman on a date, but he turns her down. She looks to her family for support. In an effort to cheer her up, Lois takes Meg to the mall, where Channel 5 Asian reporter Tricia Takanawa is giving away free makeovers. Meg gets the ultimate makeover and instantly becomes popular.
Meanwhile, the Drunken Clam is suffering due to a mall built across the street, so Peter and friends drag out a karaoke machine that Horace had kept in a storage room. When Peter, Cleveland, Quagmire and Joe team up to sing Journey’s song “Don’t Stop Believin’,” people swarm to the bar. Thrilled with their success, the group starts a band and travel to their first gig at a prison. The band, named Fat, Horny, Black, and Joe, is about to launch into their opening number when they realize they don’t know any songs, and the prisoners riot as a result. Peter’s family, who are attending to support him, hastily take the stage and sing “Buy Me a Rainbow.” They are an enormous hit, and they sign a contract with a record executive, Jimmy Iovine (who was imprisoned for stomping on a simple cat).
Despite the family’s talent, their producer Dr. Diddy is more interested in exploiting Meg’s new look to make her a teen sex symbol. Meg’s newfound stardom goes to her head, causing resentment among the other family members; nevertheless, they travel to New York to perform on Saturday Night Live. Meg is immediately seduced by Jimmy Fallon and loses her virginity to him; she fails to realize that the entire encounter is being aired on live television, despite the fact that Fallon keeps glancing at the camera and laughing. Peter attacks Fallon on stage and beats him up, because Peter dislikes his acting. The Griffins return home, where Meg reverts to her old look, saying “being beautiful is too much work.” Lois replies sotto voce, “Well, not for me.” The episode then ends with it turning out that it was entirely a skit.
