Why is it that most people can't list the first three leaders of their country but can tell you the name of every contestant that appeared on Survivor? Because Survivor is on TV! History Bites is a skit comedy show that explores the premise, "What if television had been around for the past 5,000 years?" Each episode channel surfs through a particular day in history and the result is a history lesson hidden inside a clever spoof of TV. It's the great Irish potato famine which caused a huge wave of immigrants to leave the old world for Canada and the United States. Celebrities like Richard Wagner and Emily Bronte join Sally Struthers for a 24-hour save-the-Irish telethon.
