"We want you to be 100 percent truthful how you got away with it", Monaldo asks.

Famous for creating a roster of iconic moments and incendiary characters, Baron Cohen returned to series television for the first time in more than a decade, writing and directing Who is America? Simpson to confess to murder on the finale episode of Showtime's Who Is America?
