Trivia

In the pilot episode, it was explained that Johnny fell from grace as a DJ, after he used the word "booger" on-air. (Andy gave his blessing for Johnny to use the word, when he changed WKRP's format.) In this episode, Johnny returns to WKRP after being fired for using another word ("jive-ass") on-air. (Hesseman said "jive-ass" during the taping, but it was edited out for broadcast.) See more »
