Tonight, the audience is made up entirely of college students who will vote in their first-ever elections, seeing that this is an election year. A patriotic song plays during the opening as Rich welcomes the audience to the show. Samples of signs include: BEWARE OF EL CHEAPO, A CAR IN EVERY GARAGE, and VOTE NO ON DOUBLE-OVERBIDS.

At least these kids were better than the ones on the previous college MDS.
