Storyline

Gordy Howard, MJM's old weatherman who is back in Minneapolis for a visit, has made it big in New York City with a six figure network job hosting a morning news show. When Ted reads about Gordy's success, he is green with envy and takes whatever opportunity to berate Gordy to others, until he learns that Gordy is looking for a co-host. Ted does whatever he can to ingratiate himself into Gordy's favor so that Gordy will recommend him to the network. When Gordy tactfully but bluntly turns Ted down, Ted takes it upon himself to prove to Gordy that his life is as good if not better than his. This competition ends up affecting Mary more than anyone else. Meanwhile, Gordy's old friends in the newsroom want to throw him a welcome back party. Mary talks Lou into hosting it, meaning that she won't have to take the responsibility of being host as she usually is. Or will Lou turn the tables back on her? Written by Huggo

Ted Was Lucky to Keep His Teeth
5 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gordy, the former weatherman (played by John Amos) has hit the big time. He has a huge contract to do a talk show in New York City. He comes to Minneapolis and stops at WJM. Of course, all Ted can think about is trying to get Gordy to make him a co-host. He is about as obnoxious as he has ever been. Gordy finally has to let him have it verbally because Ted won't back off. He tells Ted he just isn't good enough. Lou throws a party at his place with lots of help from Mary (it is in deplorable condition). Ted vows to go and confront Gordy for what he said. There are a couple of nice scenes along the way, but Ted is such an ass that it's hard to enjoy him.
