When business is slow, Janine finds an old black and white TV of hers in storage. When a giant woodchuck ghost appears from the set, things get weird all over town. Slimer accidentally gets sucked into a TV. The guys find out the ghosts take over a television station in a plan for world domination. Inside the station, the guys find themselves having to deal with ghostly TV parodies. The guys find Slimer and then find the head honcho, an insane clown ghost. Can they pull the plug on this joker before they become a rerun?
