Not the worst episode, but it's close
20 December 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Judy Cohen Story" opens with Michael's singing group rehearsing for a $150 prize in a talent contest at the newly opened Blue Cross. JJ's ambitions as a manager are motivated by greed and groupies, while Florida refuses to allow her 15 year old son to perform in an adult night club. The discouraged JJ finds himself in similar company with Judith Cohen (playing herself), a self deprecating comedienne and singer whose show business aspirations convince JJ that she has talent. Incredibly, her performance as a singing clown wins the $150, along with a new manager to replace the ousted JJ. Judith Cohen's career went no further than this lone showcase, her proposed series never getting off the ground. Many regard this as the worst episode, but the opening performance of 'Michael and the Dynomites' raises it above that, all downhill from there (Michael would sing again in "That's Entertainment, Evans Style," and at sister Thelma's wedding to kick off the sixth season). JJ's failures as a talent manager would continue in "The Comedian and the Loan Shark."
