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 »


Ted Baxter: A lot of people wonder how you reach a point like this. Well, you start as a staff announcer in 1952 in a television station at a small 5,000 watt radio station in Fresno, California.

He's No Prize/There's No Prize
31 January 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There are two plot elements here. The first is Rhoda's new boyfriend. She is on cloud nine and wants Mary to meet the guy. They wake her up at 2:00 a.m. and but when he sees Mary he begins to forget about Rhoda. Soon, she is included in their dates and eventually, Rhoda is left out. Rhoda sees Mary as a traitor. The second, more entertaining plot line involves Mary being forced to pick people from the station as candidate for a Teddy award, a local new editing award. Ted Baxter is nominated for three awards. But Lou talks Mary into putting her show up for an award. The evening when the awards are passed out is the best part of the episode. It affirms how often WJM fall short.
