Probably the best you could do under the circumstances.

I didn't rate it high just because I love Phil Hartman. The episode was genuinely good given the difficulty involved filming it. The show is known for not being at all sentimental but they managed to have an episode based on the death of a character & actor and NOT make it too sappy. They pay appropriate respects but also manage to be extremely funny. In fact this episode is much better than most of season 4 which kinda stunk by comparison. Its a shame that Phils last episode was the crummy Titanic story. But this one pays the appropriate amount of respect to the legendary comedian by being genuinely funny and no more sentimental than it needed to be, which is exactly what Phil would have wanted.

The fact this show couldn't last one whole season after his passing proves he really was the foundation of their little gang. And at no point do they ever fail to appreciate his contribution. God bless the News Radio cast & crew.
