A devastating comment of this world of ratings-driven commercial TV that is getting more on target every day, Network introduces us to Howard Beale (Peter Finch), dean of newscasters at the United Broadcasting System (UBS). Beale is about to be dumped because he "skews old". Beale's best friend, network executive Max Schumacher (William Holden), delivers the bad news. Beale announces on his next newscast that he is going to commit suicide on his final programme. Ambitious programming executive Diana Christensen convinces Frank Hackett not to fire Beale immediately because that final event will give the network its greatest ratings ever. But instead of killing himself, Beale talks about the terrible state of the world and concludes his tirade with the cry, "I'm mad as Hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"
