Videos From My Name Is Earl's Darnell Outed

Does anyone think that Joy is capable of out-performing Erik Estrada? She does and she’s out to prove it on this week’s episode of My Name Is Earl. We’ve got an episode description and some very spoilery video clips from the episode to share with you, if you just can’t wait until Thursday to see what Joy’s secret talent is.

Here’s NBC’s official description for the episode, titled “Darnell Outed (Part 1 of 2)”:

“ESTRADA OR NADA? "CHiPs'" ERIK ESTRADA GUEST STARS – When auditions for Erik Estrada's (guest star Erik Estrada, "CHiPs") new reality show come to Camden, Earl (Jason Lee) encourages Joy (Jaime Pressly) to go for her childhood dream of becoming famous and tryout, thus allowing him to cross an item off his list. Joy, initially reluctant, steals Randy's (Ethan Suplee) audition and makes a fool of herself. Her crazy antics are a cause for concern when Darnell (Eddie Steeples) receives a startling phone call. Nadine Velazquez also stars.”

While all of the videos we have focus on the Estrada or Nada game show, which incidentally includes American Idol season 1 co-host Brian Dunkleman (playing himself) as host of the game-show, I’m guessing the big reveal in the episode will have to do with the “startling phone call” that Darnell receives. Could the Crab Man’s cover be blown?

Below are the video clips from the episode. They give away a lot about the Estrada or Nada plot, including a very amusing clip featuring Randy, so consider yourself majorly spoiler-warned!:

My Name is Earl airs on Thursday nights at 8:00 PM ET on NBC.
