In this spoof of All About Eve, "Happy Homemaker" Sue Ann Nivens (Betty White) is touched by the devotion of a wide-eyed young fan named Gloria Munson. It soom becomes obvious, however, that Gloria is a scheming vixen, who worms her way into the affections of the WJM station manager in hopes of taking over Sue Ann's daily TV show. But the Happy Homemaker proves equal to the challenge with a culinary revenge that is both "sweet" and entirely in character. The connivingly ambitious Gloria Munson is played by Linda Kelsey, who latter appeared as journalist Billie Newman on the MTM-produced series Lou Grant. "A New Sue Ann" originally aired on October 26, 1974.
