Plot Overview

The investigation into the attempted murder of an obnoxious talk show host involves Paul, who had a not-so-pleasant interaction with the man before the shooting. Paul's friend and mentor, a respected judge, appeared on the show to promote his book, only to be humiliated by the creep of a host in front of a national TV audience.

The Show

Big props to guest stars Franchot Tone (as Paul's mentor, Judge Wilson), and especially to James Daly, who effortlessly channeled guys like Joe Pyne in his portrayal of talk show host Jerry Haines. Daly was one of the more in-demand guest actors of this period, and roles like this show why he was so popular among casting directors.
