Synopsis by Hal Erickson
During a lunchtime interview with Diane Moseby (Valerie Yerke) a reporter from "Newstime" who is doing a cover story on Alan Brady, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) is joined by Laura (Mary Tyler Moore). Thereafter, no matter how hard Rob tries to convince Diane that most of the credit for "The Alan Brady Show"'s success should go to the star and co-writers Buddy (Morey Amsterdam) and Sally (Rose Marie), Laura can't keep herself from butting in, insisting that Rob and Rob alone is the most important person on the show. When the article is published, Rob is spotlighted, with Buddy and Sally (and even Alan!) shunted to the background. It goes without saying that the air gets pretty thick around "The Alan Brady Show" after that...and Rob's efforts to remedy the situation only serve to make matters worse!
