John Amos, riding high as one of the stars of the landmark miniseries Roots, guest stars as former WJM-TV weatherman Gordy Howard. Having become a successful New York talk show host, Gordy returns triumphantly to the old Minneapolis newsroom. Both impressed and envious, anchorman Ted Baxter (Ted Knight) tries to wangle a job as Gordy's co-host -- and it's "open mouth, insert foot" all over again. "Hail the Conquering Gordy" was first telecast on February 5, 1977.
