Katherine Newbury is an acclaimed talk show host with an extensive career in comedy, but lately, her show's ratings have seen a steady decline. The network's president, Caroline Morton, tells Katherine to fix up her show, or she will be replaced. In an attempt to revamp the show, Katherine has Molly Patel hired to her writing staff, mainly on the basis that she is an Indian woman while the rest of the writers are older white men. Although Molly struggles at first, she proves her worth by giving Katherine good material to work with on her show, as well as ideas on how to reach out to a bigger audience. The results prove to be successful. Katherine learns that Caroline wants to pick young popular comedian Daniel Tennant to replace her as the new host, but Katherine doesn't want to since Daniel's comedy is vulgar and borderline misogynistic. With backup from her writers, Katherine defies the network's demands and decides to stick around.
