Love Monkey: Nice Package

Tom is settling into his new job at True Vinyl Records just as their benefit concert begins to fall apart. Using his contacts from his old job, he enlists Zoe, America's top pop star, who now chooses this exact time to change her image.

Meanwhile, Mike must deal with Karen's choice of nanny -- a very attractive woman. Also, Shooter begins dating a woman whose candor and honesty is at first refreshing, but then backfires.
