Archie comes home in a good mood because, while at work, he was interviewed by CBS for his opinion on the Nixon administration. After dinner he gathers the family around the television only to find that the set is busted. While Mike and Edith try to find a repairman who is working late, Gloria tries to find at least one neighbor that Archie hasn't offended who will let him borrow their set. A repairman comes by and gives Archie a diagnosis but can't fix it because he is Jewish and can't work after sundown on Friday. Finally, Archie takes the family down to Kelsey's Bar and just as the broadcast begins it is preempted by a speech from Nixon himself. Written by
