The show is over. Jim tells the staff they can go home. Charlie tells Jim that he'll probably be getting sweet, lucrative job offers and to talk to Charlie before accepting them. Yeah, or Charlie could give Jim a raise since he basically just said ACN isn't paying Jim what he's worth. "That won't be an issue, sir," Jim says. Idiot. Charlie invites him out for a drink with Will. Jim tries to beg off. "Be a damn newsman, would ya?" Charlie says.
Hey, remember how Neal was a blogger? Well, he's blogging! But he's doing it via a microphone instead of typing because those voice recognition things do so well with English accents. They know that when Neal says "colon" he means a : and when he says "sixty-three" he means 63. Amazing! He signs off even though some of the election results aren't in yet. Worst news station ever. Jim and Neal make fun of each other for being nerds, and then Neal points out that Maggie is sitting on the stairs by herself.
Jim is about to make his move when Don comes down the stairs and starts making out with her. Fire them both. Not appropriate. Also, does anyone care about this love triangle?
And now, Brad has brought us up to date on the NewsNight problem. Jane Fonda finally speaks up and asks everyone to leave the room except Charlie and Reese. They do. Jane Fonda launches into a speech about Moses and Jesus playing golf because all people do on this show is tell random stories that sort of maybe relate to what's actually going on but it take way too long to actually get there. But Jane Fonda manages to deliver the lines better than most people on this show, so good for her.
Charlie thinks they're having fun until Jane Fonda orders him to stop laughing. He seriously says the ratings "have stabilized" and he's going to get them back up. In the meantime, ACN has a great show. That no one likes. "What happened to human interest stories?" Jane Fonda asks; "he was great at that shit!" "He was sleeping during that shit," Charlie says. And now we are sleeping during this shit. Just in case you haven't been watching or paying attention for the past two episodes, Charlie informs us: "I engineered a situation wherein an executive producer with a unique ability to bring out the very best in an anchor with a unique ability were paired to do a news broadcast this company can and should be proud of." There is just no way to describe the premise of this show without boring us all to tears. Jane Fonda says they're doing news that appeals to the left. "For the center," Charlie says. No, it's not the center. Come on. "Are you fucking out of your mind?" Jane Fonda says. "Facts are the center," Charlie says. Yeah, but NewsNight has made an obvious decision regarding which facts it's going to address.
