A spinoff of the original WKRP in Cincinnati. Arthur "Big Guy" Carlson still runs the lagging station. When his latest program director is fired for violating FCC regulations, he hires Donovan Aderhold. Donovan has so many fresh ideas, it boggles the mind of the boss. The new WKRP included Morning DJs Jack Allen and Dana Burns and the sultry night DJ, Mona Loveland. From time to time past WKRP alumni would return to visit, showing that their lives had turned out better since they left. Advertising director Herb Tarlek (bad suits and all) and Les Nessman were also returning regulars to the show. Written by Pat McCurry <>

9 YEARS later-- Amazing but Flawed Revival
13 March 2009 | by (Camden, NJ (The Forbidden Zone)) – See all my reviews

I always remember thinking I'd never seen a TV show get revived after that much time where it felt like they picked up a WEEK later instead of almost a decade. They rebuilt the sets to look like they had, with a few minor changes... The booth was slightly bigger, Les had a place to sit and do the news on the other side of the board, so the DJs wouldn't have to move when he came in, and behind him, they added a window looking into the program director's office. Other than that, the attention to detail was amazing.

Arthur was clearly older, Herb hadn't changed much, Les looked exactly the same. Jennifer made a guest-appearance in the 2nd new episode, clearly older but still gorgeous. Johnny also turned up, his hair turning white. I immediately took a liking to several of the new cast members, including Jack Allen (Michael Des Barres) who had appeared earlier as a member of "Scum Of The Earth"; his wife Dana Burns (Kathleen Garrett); program director Donovan Aderhold (Mykelti Williamson). Over the course of the series, I got the impression they did everything they could to try to make viewers forget all about Loni Anderson by casting some of the most beautiful women I'd EVER seen on TV; Katherine Moffat had a recurring role as Edna Grindbody, head of the Cincinatti League of Decenty (C.L.O.D.), and at the end of the 2nd episode they introduced new night-time DJ Mona Loveland (Tawni Kitaen). Her intro scene is unforgettable, as ALL the guys in the station stop by to just stare in thru the booth window in a state of shock and awe-- while Johnny just stands there smiling and says, "Very impressive!" Carol Bruce came back as Lillian Carlson, her hair now completely white, but only slightly mellower. I was disappointed not to see Hirsch (Ian Wolfe), as I read he was still around at the time.

Not everything on the show was to my liking, but there were a lot of good moments. There was a LOT of potential in this, and it's a shame that the stations running it kept screwing with the schedule. (I'm amazed I was able to record ALL the episodes. I was a lot more dedicated back then.)
