1x13 Project Televisionary (August 26, 2003)
Joel gets renewed for next season, but the price is steep: VH1 is finally going to air Project Televisionary, the story of how Joel came to VH1 and met Kevin and Michele-it's unusually humiliating and might destroy all their friendships.
1x12 The Niece (August 19, 2003)
Embarrassed by Michele's accusation that he's turned into a suck-up to the stars, Joel lashes out at a celebrity relative intern until he learns she has cancer - and then he has a bigger problem: Does he have to be nice to her now, or does slamming on the cancer girl make him real cutting-edge? Meanwhile Hugo forces Kevin to re-design VH1's web page depicting Times Square, 2500.
1x11 Hockey (August 12, 2003)
Joel's search for a celebrity pal leads to an on-air hockey duke-out with heavy-metalman Rob Halford, and then a crush on Eighties's popstress Debbie Gibson, who won't stop believing that her love can change the gay Halford. Kevin catches Michele helping herself to some cash being collected for a Leif gift, to get even for his revealing their ancient one-night stand.
1x10 The Ur-Man And The Seal (August 05, 2003)
Upset that she's not impressing the right folks at VH1, Michele ropes Joel into playing Pinniped - the hero seal of an 1800-episode Japanese anime series that is the centerpiece of station CEO Hugo's attempt to lure 6-year olds to his new VH1 Juvenile. Meanwhile, Executive Remotivation Week finds musically unsavvy Z working as counter help at Skyscraper Records.
1x09 Book'd (July 29, 2003)

1x08 Joel Sells Out (July 22, 2003)
Joel and Michele scheme to score freebies off product-mentions he "casually" gets rock stars to discuss in interviews, but that gives Z the idea for a full-time sponsor: Wobu, a trendy vitamin water, whose rep starts insisting on changes to Joel's on-air style after a Bono interview turns into a shouting match. Kevin's share of the take is 30,000 worms he can't get rid of.
1x07 Business Affairs (July 15, 2003)
A totally innocent exchange of emails between two employees is electronically circulated to the entire company, leading to an all-day Sexual Sensitivity Seminar whose leader pits Joel against Michele to get Michele transferred to L.A. Arrogant Leif - who thinks he's VH1' s star -can't get past his own building's security.

Joel gets in shape with a personal ""A-list celebrity"" trainer, and takes ""Man Fuel"", which he thinks makes him bulkier and strongier, but ends up giving him breasts.
