Mickey is a page at IBC studios. It turns out he likes all the same television shows on the network that the "average" person likes (unlike all the stuffed shirts who hate those shows). He's promoted with the title of "average man" and his new job is to watch new programs and determine which will be a hit. He stumbles across a pilot about a lonely old woman. He hates the pilot, but the woman playing the main role is a friend of his mother. What does he do: admit he hates it and hurt his mom's friend, or lie to save her career? Written by cgm95
