Showbiz Showdown Act 3 is Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Note: No separate open thread this week due to Act 3 starting up.  Feel free to use this post as your Open Thread..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Lights! Camera! Actions!  Krusty’s making a Sands of Space squeal, but will his movie survive the studio’s crazy crossover?  Only time..and 5 weeks of tapping will tell!
