A spinoff of the original WKRP in Cincinnati. Arthur "Big Guy" Carlson still runs the lagging station. When his latest program director is fired for violating FCC regulations, he hires Donovan Aderhold. Donovan has so many fresh ideas, it boggles the mind of the boss. The new WKRP included Morning DJs Jack Allen and Dana Burns and the sultry night DJ, Mona Loveland. From time to time past WKRP alumni would return to visit, showing that their lives had turned out better since they left. Advertising director Herb Tarlek (bad suits and all) and Les Nessman were also returning regulars to the show. —Pat McCurry <email@example.com>
I actually liked it but then Carlson Jr came in
As a fan of the original WKRP in Cincinnati, I could follow the story, News Director Les Nessman and Sales Manager Herb Tarlek as well as the Big guy Arthur Carlson Sr. (Sr. Apparently) as far as the new cast I found the morning maniacs (Season 1) and Razor D (Season 2) entertaining, the program director wasn't as entertaining as Andy Travis (The original WKRP) The studio was awesome, finally made use of an area we never seen on the original series by putting Les Nessman back there with cart machines and his own board (which I am sure it was controlled by a pot on the other side on the main board) it was cool to see Michael Des Barres on this series, fans of the original series will remember him from Episode 4 of the original series as Sir Charles Weatherbee but he answers to Dog, of the band they get to play a concert called The Scum of the Earth, but I was just as amazed to find out Des Barres is an actual musician, and the song that he did on the original series was one of his own, but the New series was great from a standpoint of it kept enough originals (with Howard Hesseman and Tim Reid appearing in 5 for Howard and 1 for Tim in guest slots) this show along with the original were two good examples of how GOOD tv was, notice I Didn't mention Jr. Well no one else thought he should have even been there.
