Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Suffering a mild heart attack while on the air, bombastic anchorman Ted Baxter (Ted Knight) suddenly experiences an epiphany. Now it is a "kinder, gentler" Ted who greets the newsroom staff with daily philosophical ramblings (his discourse on a grain of salt is not to be missed). Is it any wonder that the gang is soon on the verge of insanity, hoping against hope that the "old" Ted will come back without delay? "Ted's Change of Heart" originally aired on October 23, 1976.
