Mr. Hartunian
Bob Peterson


Everyone in the newsroom is excited about the impending second annual Television Editors Awards - better known as the Teddys - as Mary fills out the nomination submission form. Although she feels uncomfortable in tooting her own horn, Mary is quietly excited when Lou suggests to her that she submit her own news magazine show for an award. The excitement in the newsroom is even more palatable when every single one of their submissions, including three for Ted, is on the final list of nominees. Meanwhile, Rhoda has a new boyfriend, Bob Peterson, who she feels could be the one. But being as insecure as she is, Rhoda wants Mary's seal of approval of Bob. Rhoda may regret asking for such when Bob suggests that they spend all their social time together as a threesome. Mary fears that Bob is falling for her instead, as does Rhoda.

Did You Know?


Ted's first mention of the "5,000-watt radio station in Fresno, California," where he started his broadcasting career. He delivers his acceptance speech under the closing credits, one of the few times in the series' run in which the "curtain-call" credits were replaced by continuing action. See more »


At the end of the episode, Lou presents an award to the newsroom staff (bought from the Tinker Trophy Company). Ted begins his oft-repeated acceptance speech about "It all starting in Fresno," but he gets it wrong, saying, "You start as a staff announcer in 1952 at a television station, in a small, 5,000-watt radio station in Fresno, California." Usually it's a radio station, not a television and radio station. See more »
