Everything's Bad/Nothing Is Good!
4 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

WJM's station manager decides to hire a ruthless critic to be a part of the 6:00 news. He is a former college professor and as acerbic and self-centered as is possible. He has nothing food to say about anything, from drama, to movies, to food, to local media. However, he does bring controversy and that's what is desired to boost ratings. He angers everyone in the office. At one point he takes Mary with him to a high priced French restaurant and creates a huge scene. Mary, of course, is hilarious. Finally, he decides to take on his own station. The final scene is pretty classic, but it has a nice little twist.
