The ratings for News Night are in freefall after it blows off a pair of top stories. It forces Will and Mac to find a way to bring enough viewers back to justify ACN's quest to air a Republican debate. Will considers writers for an all-access profile, Sloan is upset by the lack of coverage of the emerging debt-ceiling crisis and Charlie learns the identity of NSA employee 'Late for Dinner'.
