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

Creator Hugh Wilson
wrote this episode in response to CBS's demands that he make the show more farcical and kid-friendly. It was the last episode of the initial 13-episode order, and Wilson was so embarrassed by the finished episode that he used a pseudonym for the writing credit. See more
The Fish Story episode was written as a protest against the pressure CBS was placing on the writers to shift to a broader sitcom storyline. Hugh Wilson scratched his name from the opening credits of this episode and replaced with the "Raoul Plager". See more
