In this classic episode, a fast-talking promoter inveigles anchorman Ted Baxter (Ted Knight) into setting up his own broadcasters school. When the promoter turns out to be a crook, Ted's co-workers rally together and offer to serve as the school's instructors during the first session, at least until the enrollment money can be returned to the prospective students. In an unforgettable climax, the "faculty" tortuously explains the school's curriculum to the entire student body -- all one of him. "Ted Baxter's Famous Broadcasters School" originally aired on February 22, 1975.
