or, Bring Your Daughter to Work Day.

CW: This includes some nightmare fuel for parents, I imagine.

This one is another Teddy Perkins episode. A single character (well, two counting the daughter) sucked into a dystopian showbiz universe, and the monster is played by Glover in disguise. For some reason I feel like these episodes reflect DG's personal sense of humor most closely - both had a climactic, very silly line spoken by Glover (in Teddy Perkins it's about showbiz fathers, and in this one it's the about the grits).

On the surface it's a satire squarely aimed at Tyler Perry, but then they subtly suggest it's a self-critique as well (as Mr. Chocolate shows Vanessa clips from the surveillance cam, saying that these are TV tropes.) One wonders if DG has feelings about the show going on a season or two more than they really wanted to do.
