The network not only airs it, but it incredibly becomes a smash hit.

After being berated by his boss and being threatened being fired if he fails to come up with a hit TV show, on purpose, he creates an outrageously offensive and stereotypical TV minstrel show with actors, dancers and musicians all in blackface as a joke, in order to break his contract with the network he works for - all of this so he won't have to worry about being sued if he quits.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 4, 2018, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 25, 2018, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 17, 2014, The film starts very well but loses its way towards the end but an enjoyable satire all the same, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 7, 2016, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 11, 2015. The show is supposed to initially mock the negative images of blacks, and to make people angry enough to have it pulled from the air, and get Pierre fired - but to his surprize, it turns out to be a massive hit. I feel that Spike Lee can still make relevant films about race, and this film certainly is one of them. A frustrated African-American TV writer proposes a blackface minstrel show in protest, but to his chagrin it becomes a hit. I understand exactly what he was trying to say and agree wholeheartedly.
The filming could have been better, but it was low-budget so ill cut Lee some slack.

As a homage to such Hollywood movie classics as "A Face In The Crowd", the original version of "The Producers" and "Network", I understand completely what message Spike Lee conveyed in this film, and for the most part, I agree with it.
