Vic DeSalvo moves to Hollywood to write scripts, but no-one will buy them until MBC's president fires his comedy development chief and the chief buys the dreadful scripts in revenge before he leaves. Vic meets a ratings system statistician, she falls in love with him, and fixes the ratings so his show looks like a hit.
