This episode was inspired by the recent defections of several long-time CBS, affiliates to the upstart Fox network. It all begins when the ever-outspoken Murphy (Candice Bergen) uses her "FYI" forum to trash her own network's new fall-lineup. In retaliation, network boss Stan Lansing (Garry Marshall) orders Murphy to do a major suck-up job at a convention of angry network affiliates. Somehow or other this leads to a rare photo-op in which Murphy puts her arms around network "star" Jeri the Orangutan.
