When Mel Price, the station manager, mentions at a party at Mary's place that he needs to fill one hour's worth of variety time on the network since the existing talent has left, Ted volunteers. Ted and Georgette do a corny, simplistic skit for Mel that they did at a church function. Mel loves their husband/wife chemistry and gives them an on-air audition. Mel loves their audition, and the Minneapolis public loves their resulting show, much to the surprise of Lou, Mary and Murray, who can't understand the appeal of the corny material. Mary's feeling doesn't stop her from agreeing to appear on the show to describe her work. Another person who is surprised at the success of the show is Georgette, who increasingly hates the job to the point of tears. She is only doing it for Ted, who enjoys the spotlight at any cost, perhaps even the cost of his wife's happiness or lack thereof.

Ted & Georgette Make a Big Splash
5 March 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When a performer walks off the set, WJM needs to fill a one hour void on their schedule. This is announced at a party at Mary's apartment. Ted tells the manager that he and Georgette have a little act they can do. It's a silly little mind reading thing, but he is impressed with their personalities, feeling this will be a charming thing for the audience. And soon the show is a success. It's lightweight and fluff. But then there is a fly in the ointment; Georgette doesn't want to do it any more. She drops this on Ted just before they go on the air, with Mary as a guest. Of course, it's quite a small disaster. Mary has to do the show solo with not preparations or script. Mary's bewilderment was one of her major assets on the show.
