Gordon Pinsent guest stars as Myron Kingswell, a wheeler and dealer who is intent on building a media empire. Alan obliges by selling Pyramid to Kingswell. Alan assures Veronica, Victor, Wanda and Richard that there will be no changes. However, Richard knows better.
Alan is convinced that the show "Producer's Cut," which stars Jonathan Summers, makes fun of him. He recruits Wanda to work for him and spy on Jonathan's production company. Meanwhile, Veronica is busy working out new contracts for Richard and Victor, who become obsessed with which one of them is earning more money.
When Brian, from the network, arrives at Pyramid, Alan is ready to negotiate for more seasons of "Beaver Creek." Instead, Brian informs Alan that the show is canceled. While an outraged Alan enlists Victor to galvanize the public to revive the show, Richard and Veronica work on spin offs for the cast members.
When Pyramid's new kids quiz show is in trouble, Richard and Victor must retool it and find another host. Over Richard's strenuous objections, the new host is none other than Richard's older brother Charles. Meanwhile, Veronica arranges for Alan to receive an honorary degree from a college and tries in vain to make sure Alan doesn't embarrass himself or his company at the commencement address.
