A new episode of “Playing for Peanuts” will be showing on SNY this weekend — on Sunday night at 6 pm.

Synopsis: The Peanuts return home to Albany, GA (aka “The Good Life City”) after winning six games in a row to start the season. Steve Butler takes us on a tour of the player’s disgustingly dirty house. Back at the stadium, the Peanuts are visited by former MLB slugger Cecil Fielder and manager Wally Backman chews his team out after a sloppy performance.

Check out the open thread for the episode, where you can find some “inside” info from producer John Fitzgerald and also post your comments. Oh, and if you follow that link, you can also get a ringtone of Cecil Fielder as “Dr. Livinggood”.
