Now it's twenty-five minutes into the show and David is saying that alcohol is a "pressing issue" and that it's the "backbone of New Orleans" and once again, I don't know that it's a good idea to trash the city hosting you. Kelley says that the "number-one things bringing tourists into town is alcohol and food." I'll cut her some slack on the grammar because it's the end of the show and she was probably just relieved that David didn't take his shirt off or start scatting again. Danny is giving commands in the control room, and Melissa wraps things up. They all start yelling at the camera, which is scary. Danny counts down to the end of the show and they all cheer. In an interview, David says, "Can you say 'success'? Oh, man, it felt good." In an interview, Melissa says that for all the stressing and arguing, they pulled it off.
They're all back in the conference room. Elton says that they did a great job, and they pulled it all together, and they should give themselves a big hand. He continues to lavish praise on them, saying that he's proud of them, and that the set looked great, and that the music was great. In an interview, Jamie says that for the first time, the vibe at NOA-TV was a positive vibe. Elton tells them to imagine where they can go from here. Nowhere? Then he does the super-cheesy, "You deserve a round of applause" thing and makes them all clap for themselves. In an interview, Kelley says that Elton really is impressed and that she "got the old, 'Good job'" complete with double thumbs-up gesture. Julie is the only one who doesn't look very excited. In an interview, Julie yells that everyone is celebrating like it was the greatest show, and "first of all, the first show sucked!" She goes on to say that if she's the only person who saw that, then she's sorry, but it did. Well, way to bring everyone down. It wasn't THAT bad. I mean, it wasn't as bad as it could have been, I guess. The whole concept was bad, but the execution wasn't that bad. Julie asks Elton if they are going to be doing this every week, and every Saturday for the rest of their time in New Orleans. Elton says they are, and that they should start thinking about their second show because it's coming up real quick.
Back at Belfort, Kelley and David are sitting outside. Kelley asks David if he's going to produce the next show, and says that she thinks he should In an interview, Kelley explains that Elton wants each cast member to produce a show. David says he needs to figure out what they are doing and who is doing what. Kelley thinks that he should because he would do a good job. I think she just wants him to see how difficult a task being producer really is. It's her way of getting revenge. David admits that he has "a pad full of stuff." In an interview, David says that when Kelley produced the show, he saw both good and bad things, and he learned from the bad things, so he has more confidence now. I didn't know that it was possible for David to have more confidence in himself.
