WKRP in Cincinnati

So just sit right down, relax, open your ears real wide and say, Give it to me straight, Doctor. I can take it!

When a Cincinnati radio station switches from sedate music to top-40 rock 'n' roll, its staff of oddball characters is forced to switch gears quickly. New programming director Andy Travis brings in a new DJ named Venus Flytrap to work with the station's burned-out veteran, Dr. Johnny Fever. Neurotic newsman Les Nessman, eager beaver Bailey Quarters, sleazy salesman Herb Tarlek, blonde bombshell Jennifer Marlowe, who serves as the station's ultra-capable receptionist, and station manager Arthur Carlson, whose domineering mother owns WKRP, round out the eccentric bunch.

I don't care what anyone else says, WKRP still has the funniest episode of all time and the funniest holiday episode of TV history. Period. No contest. It wasn't wall-to-wall laughter, it wasn't as great as I remember it being, but when it was funny, even decades later nothing has matched it. WKRP outdid itself in almost every way, and it deserves to go down in comedy history as one of the greatest shows of all time
