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>

One of the things that made the original so good was that you had this sane character Andy Travis coming into what is essentially a nut house and becoming one of the nuts.But with this new one there are too many sane people who work at the station and also it centers around Carlson,Les Nesman and Herb Tarlick.While they were a bit off center in the old show they weren't the main characters.On this one they were and somehow without Jennifer to play off of Herb and Carlson to play off of Andy and Nesman to play off of everybody,it just doesn't work.Plus the original just had a great cast that that seemed to click.My advice would be to buy the original on DVD and try to forget this one
