Mary receives a visit from sweet but timid Gloria Munson, the younger sister of her high school classmate, Carla Munson, who Mary can't remember for the life of her. Gloria is up front that the reason for her visit is that she wants to get into television, and thought Mary could help. Mary is equally as up front in telling her that there are no positions at the station, but she invites Gloria for a tour regardless. Her visit to the station does lead to a job on her idol Sue Ann's show as her stand-in and production assistant.

Gloria can't help but suggest some of those changes, especially when she demonstrates how to do them perfectly.

All About Eve Redux
20 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Mary is invaded by the sister of someone she went to high school with (whom she can't remember). She is a vixen, played by Linda Kelsey who would later be on the "Lou Grant Show." She is ambitious and pushy, an opportunist. When her wiles don't work at first, she ends up honing in on Sue Ann Nivens, pretty much taking over her show. Not only that, she starts dating the program director. Sue Ann is not one to let this happen. She is soon conniving and manipulating. She is so evil but just hilarious. But you know that Sue Ann is going to find a way.
