In an episode hated by creator Hugh Wilson, but loved by the fans, we see a day in the life of WKRP. Johnny and Venus are participating in a "Drinking and Response Time" on-air promotion. Mr. Carlson & Andy are being interviewed for a newspaper about the changes at the station. The lobby is being painted by a lazy and slow painter. And Herb, dressed like a Karp (WKRP) gets into a fight with a guy dressed like a Pig (WPIG) in a college bathroom and gets arrested with Bailey and Les. Written by

In the opening credits, Hugh Wilson
used the name Raoul Plager. He was under pressure by CBS to write a more broad comedy, and since he did not want to do work that he felt was beneath him, he used an alias. This episode turned out to be the highest rated during the show's run. See more
