Murphy's co-anchor Jim Dial (Charles Kimbrough) feels honored when he is chosen for his first foreign assignment in years, in far-off Libya. Little does he know that the network has an ulterior motive: concerned that Jim may be wearing out his welcome, the "suits" decide to try out a callow young anchorman named Miller Redfield (Christopher Rich) in his first series appeance) in his absence. Disdaining Miller as the "Fake Jim", Murphy (Candice Bergen) enters into a conspiracy to sabotage the newcomer.
