TV Obscura - The Ellen Burstyn Show

Triple Crown winner Ellen Burstyn, with Ron Swanson's ex-wife and that comedy white-boy rapper who was on Dr. Katz.  The third lowest rated show that year.

Money quote from Barry Sobel's Wikipedia entry:

He adopted his hip-hop comedy rap in 1987 when he was featured on HBO's Uptown Comedy Express. He was the only white performer there among an all black line-up and a predominantly black audience. Eddie Murphy and Earvin "Magic" Johnson were in attendance, and appeared to laugh at his jokes.
That's enough for an "N word" card right there.
