Storyline

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. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

The laugh track kills it.
14 August 2018 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

Laugh tracks aren't always a bad thing. When the laughs happen at the right time they are gold, when the laughs happen for no reason(like they do here) it makes it hard to watch or respect the show. That's really the only bad thing about this show. Anyone who says the original was "so much better" is either lying or hasn't seen the original in 30 years so they don't remember what it really was like. It was literally a show full of 50 year olds who were "edgy" and "pushing the envelope". Saying booger and being scared of mud people was all they had. If the original had aired in the 50's it would have been ground breaking. In the 70s it was just sad old people trying to be young and hip. This is just as good as the original, don't listen to the crusty octogenarians. BTW I love that Les looks exactly the same in the 90s as he did in the 70s. Did you know him and Travis were almost the same age???
