TV ratings can be murder! That's clear with a visit the set of the popular 1950s TV variety show, "The Primo Donna Variety Hour!" Primo is a great egotist whose ex-wife is still his show's nasty producer. They'd like nothing more than to see each other dead. Meanwhile, the rest of the production staff just wants to keep the show going - a job that turns out to be murder!
