jQuery slider failing on 1st load?

Can’t seem to get rid of this annoying issue. I’m using this plugin:

which seems to work fine but on my implementation the slider doesn’t always appear when the website is first loaded. If i click on another page and then click HOME again the slider loads… but why is it not firing first time, every time?

http://www.dailyshowbusiness.com here is the url. appreciation to anyone who can take a look as it is driving me crazy. (it may load successful first time, it seems random? so you may need to try a few times for it to fail)

Or does anyone know of a similar plugin, this one is also a little sluggish i can’t seem to fix? basically i want the 3 smaller images clickable which bring it into full view in the main slider.
