The workplace sitcom "NewsRadio" explores the office politics and interpersonal relationships among the staff of WNYX NewsRadio, New York's #2 news radio station. Beleaguered news director Dave Nelson (Dave Foley) tries his best to manage a staff that includes egotistical anchors Bill McNeal (Phil Hartman) and Catherine Duke (Khandi Alexander), ambitious supervising producer Lisa Miller (Maura Tierney), who also happens to be his on/off girlfriend, hapless reporter Matthew Brock (Andy Dick), sardonic secretary Beth (Vicki Lewis), and tech-happy electrician Joe (Joe Rogan), while also answering to the station's intimidating and eccentric owner Jimmy James (Stephen Root).Written by
There are two episodes of the show that feature a special title sequence centering on Mattew Brock, played by Andy Dick. The first is in the season 4 episode, The Public Domain, which shows Joe placing Matthew in a garbage can outside of the building where WNYX is housed. The second is for the fourth season episode, The Secret of Managment, which shows Matthew trying to get the attention of Katie Couric and Matt Lauer outside of the studio of NBC's Today. See more »
Hold it, Bill. I've heard Penthouse letters that were more plausible than this.
So have I. But the fact is the woman wanted me, and the fact that she couldn't have me made her insane with what the great poets have called "manimal lust."

At this point "Newsradio" is one of the top three shows on tv
"Newsradio" is possibly the freshest comedy left on television in 1998. The chemistry between the cast members remains at a high level, even after the unfortunate passing of Phil Hartman. To this point of the fifth season Jon Lovits has stepped in and done a great job as Max. I salute NBC for not giving up on this fine show just because it's not in the top twenty each week. Someone at the network obviously still feels there should be SOME quality programing on television.
