On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

Ebonie Smith makes her first series appearance as Jessica, the granddaughter of George and Louise Jefferson. Louise can't stand it when haughty Mrs. Van Morris, perennial winner of the Volunteer of the Year award, brags about the piano skills of her grandson Van. Hoping to show up Mrs. Van Morris once and for all, Louise arranges for Jessica (whose musical talent is rudimentary at best) to compete against Van in a piano recital.
