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
