Trivia

Jon Lovitz has appeared as three different characters:
  • A guest appearance as a mental patient who befriends Bill McNeal


  • A guest appearance as a suicidal man perched on the ledge outside Dave's window


  • As Max Lewis, a radio DJ who had several dozen jobs in his past, but was hired to replace the late Bill McNeal largely because he had once worked alongside him. Lovitz said that he took the role to honor the memory of his good friend, the late Phil Hartman. Andy Dick reportedly treated Lovitz badly during his regular season on the show, but the rest of the cast praised Lovitz for stepping into a terrible situation and doing well.

Goofs

Bill McNeal frequently misattributes quotes to John Keats. In Season One, Episode 10, "Rat Funeral," Hartman attributes the line "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may..." to Keats; the line is actually from "To the Virgins, to Make Most of time" written by Robert Herrick. In Season Two, Episode 11, "Station Sale," Hartman attributes the line "Yours is not to reason why, yours is but to do and die;" to John Keats, 1776; Hartman's version is actually slightly adapted from Alfred, Lord Tennyson's "Charge of the Light Brigade" published in 1870.

Quotes

[Mr. James gets Matthew a set of "Fibber McGee and Molly" tapes for Christmas]
Matthew: [laughing] You gotta listen to this. Molly tells Fibber McGee to clean out the closet, so Fibber McGee goes to the closet and guess what happens?
Dave: He opens the closet and everything inside falls out on top of him.
Matthew: [stops laughing] Oh, that's what that sound is.
[starts laughing again]
Matthew: That's even funnier!

If you don't laugh with this show, you'll never laugh.
23 April 1999 | by (Indiana, America) – See all my reviews

I have been watching this show about 7 months now and by far It is my absolute favorite show on TV. I originally hated "NewsRadio" and would be disappointed when it came on, but after I gave it a chance by watching the old episodes with the late Phil Hartman, I never miss it. I have seen my own mother in tears over this show laughing out loud. I myself don't believe a show has ever made me laugh this hard. So if any of the cast and crew is reading this, keep it up, we love it!
