Katherine Newbury is an acclaimed late-night talk show host with an extensive career in comedy, but her show’s ratings have seen a steady decline over the past decade. 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-American woman while all remaining writers are white men. Although Molly has little experience in comedy and initially struggles, 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 successful.

Katherine learns that Caroline wants to pick young, popular comedian Daniel Tennant to replace her as the new host. Katherine resists, as Daniel’s comedy is vulgar and misogynistic. With backup from her writers, Katherine defies the network’s demands and decides on air to continue her career. An email from one of the writers, Charlie, gets leaked, in which it is revealed that Katherine had an affair with him after her husband Walter was initially diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. In the midst of the drama, Katherine fires Molly after she criticizes her for her response to the news. Eventually, Katherine makes amends with Walter and the other writers and admits her affair to her audience.
