In Lucky Hank Season 1 Episode 1, titled “Pilot,” Hank uses his tenured position as an excuse to criticize a student’s writing, which prompts the student to demand an apology. Hank refuses to apologize, and the student records their exchange. The news quickly reaches the school paper, the dean, and the rest of the English department, all of whom dislike him. As a result, the other professors conspire to oust Hank as department chair, which they’re initially successful at.
However, every department member, including Hank, votes for themselves during the vote to replace him. There’s one exception, though, who instead tries to abstain by voting for Hank. That gives Hank two votes to everyone else’s, and he’s immediately reinstated as chair.
Despite his luck in being reinstated as chair, Hank is still dealing with other issues in his life. He’s upset about his dad’s retirement and still stuck teaching students he can’t stand. Ultimately, he catches his wife while she’s on the run to tell her the good news, but she keeps running away.
