When word reaches the public that Murphy (Candice Bergen plans to deliver a controversial report on condoms, a housewife activist (clearly patterned after the real-life woman who ardently campaigned against the "filth" seen on the fledgling Fox network) organizes a sponsor boycott against "FYI." When time comes for the report to be broadcast, the program has but one sponsor left--and it isn't exactly an upscale product. Now Murphy must swallow her pride and curry favor with her lone sponsor, and soon she's wondering why in heck she chose journalism as a profession!
