Wade Anders is the host of a popular television show. Budd Clarke was the one who was originally suppose to be the host of the show but Anders did a hatchet job on him and got it. Clarke discovers that Anders once did a porno movie with an underage actress and is threatening to expose this unless Anders resigns thus paving the way for him to take over the show that he believes is rightfully his. Anders then doctors some cigarettes and replaces chain smoker Clarke's and Clarke smokes them and dies. Anders then steals the evidence that Clarke had on him. Columbo then comes in to investigate and discover a few inconsistencies. Written by

The floppy disc that Wade takes from his office is different than the one he uses to plant the story on Budd's computer. The disc, when he first takes it, has about 5 stories written on the label with a blank line between each title. When he takes it out of his pocket at Budd's house, there are more titles written on the label with no blank lines between them. See more
