Episode cast overview:
Joan Tompkins ...
Mrs. Thorn


Despite the increase in pay, Lou isn't too happy about his promotion as the station's new Program Manager, as it is a job he will have to work hard at to succeed. He's also not happy about naming his News Director successor. When she learns that Lou plans on promoting within, Mary initially states she doesn't want the job despite Lou not having offered it to her. But after some reconsideration, Mary decides she does want the job, but finds out that Lou has given the job to Murray instead. Mary quietly fumes about not getting the job in large part because she's a woman, and about her increase in workload anyway as Murray gets adjusted to his new position. But the dynamic in the news room may change based on Murray and Mary's individual wants as well as the whims of the new Program Manager. Written by Huggo
