Episode Summary

EDIT
Secrets & Liz
AIRED:
A producer from the tabloid TV show "Cool TV" is coming to Bayside to see the next filming of Maria's talk show. Screech tells Maria that Mr. Belding will be her guest on the next show. Maria meets the producer Shannon Stewart, who wants her to change her format to an exploitation-type show where she finds out secrets from the rest of the gang to air on the next episode. Screech is concerned about the direction Maria's show is going in. The next day, Ryan and Liz are being interviewed on the show when secrets about their dating get revealed, causing Nicky to get in on the action. Shannon and her boss love the new show and think Maria is terrific. But the gang are all mad at her for airing their private business, and when Mr. Belding find out what Maria has been doing, he cancels the show. At "Cool TV," vice-president Brian Blair tells Maria about the plans they have for her and signs her to do a weekly show on their channel. Shannon and Brian suggested that Maria should do her first promo at the Max. When she tells the audience about what she did, Maria rejects the offer from "Cool TV" and apologizes to everyone. Liz still has no idea who she has to choose to date, Nicky or Ryan. Also, Nicky has a plan to get tickets to see the Smashing Pumpkins concert and enlists a fan named Bongo to help him.moreless

  • Maria gets chosen to host her own talk show. Unfortunately the network execs want her to make her show more like Jerry Springer with controvesy and altercations. But once she has to involve all of her friends into the mix, things get chaotic.moreless

    Maria gets the chance of a lifetime when a major network offers her a job to produce her own live talk show. The only catch is that the execs want there to be scandals, controveries, drama, etc. Maria makes the dumbest move of the year though and exploits her friends problems to get the drama on the show the execs wanted, ultimately risking to ruin her friendships with them. To makes things worse Mr. Belding watched the show from his office and said that Marias type of explotation behavior wont be tolerated on Bayisdes TV Network. Maria blows him off and says she has an offer to "Cool TV" which is another TV station. While doing a practice run-through of her first episode, Maria has a moment of clarity and tells the producers that she cant do that to her friends anymore. Maria apologizes to her friends and they enjoy the rest of the night at the "Cool TV" Party. The episode ends with Liz still undecided as to which brother (Ryan or Nicky) she is going to choose.moreless
