WKRP In Cincinnati – Loni Anderson or Jan Smithers? + Wet Video!



Bailey Quarters Gets Dunked!

That short video of Jan Smithers in the dunking booth really shows off her beautiful body on "The Battle of The Network Stars". Isn't that Howard Cossell doing the play-by-play?

Anyway, re-watching this sitcom and really forgotten just how good it actually was, especially Season 1. Hard to believe this show was almost cancelled. That first episode of the format change is classic, along with the Turkey drop episode and the final one of S1 where Venus and Johnny get drunk on the air with the state trooper.

There is a drop off in some of the episodes after the initial season, but it is still much better than the majority of comedy sitcoms out there today.

I’m in Season 3 right now and just watched the Loni Anderson in the bathing suit episode where the photographer takes nudes of her changing and they break into the studio to try and retrieve them. Even after S1, there's a lot of classic episodes and didn’t realize there were 90 of these made in the original series. I notice someone also made a porno about the show.

Where do you rank this comedy series in your all time list of comedy sitcom favorites and what are some of your favorite episodes, quotes …

“Time for more music and Les(s) …. Nessman!”

"Red Wigglers — the Cadillac of worms!”

Oh, and who you got: Jennifer (Loni Anderson) or Bailey (Jan Smithers)?

Bailey.

Possibly one of the best TV shows ever.

It was my favorite show back in the day and still holds up. Johnny Fever is a true classic.

Bailey, I guess, but you can't go wrong with either.

Bailey would be much lower maintenance.

Baily, did more for this teenager, back in the day, than Jennifer.

You got to admit, we didn't get much eye candy on TV in the 70's.

Both of them at the same time!

I liked Bailey more.

WKRP is my favorite show of all time. There are so many clever things in most of the episodes. CBS fricked the show by moving it around so much.

One of my fav episodes is when the tornado hits Cincinnati. You have Carlson trying to remember Japanese from the war to a group of Japanese businessmen being guided by a Spanish speaker. Carlson tells them to surrender in Japanese. Later when Les is told to go on the air with the emergency plan, the plan only covers a possible Russian attack - not tornadoes. So when Les goes on the air, the Godless tornado is the enemy.

Bailey was really hot. Natural - good looking.

Loni was about as real as Dolly Parton.

This is like the Ginger/Maryann debate. The majority of guys alway seem to pick the natural beauty over the sex symbol.

Bailey FTW. Loni Anderson is too much of a good thing. She looks like a blow up doll.

I have it very high - if you can find it with the original music. The big tragedy of the show and the reason that most people cannot fully enjoy it today is that the music was licensed for a limited time/# of runs or whatever. The current DVD package, at least that I'm aware of, does not have much of the original music and the editing required to fix it has damaged the integrity of these packages.

I want to say Nick at Night ran a syndication package with most, but not all, of the original music intact and I have heard that some bootleg copies of that package (in very poor, sub-VHS quality condition) exist.

In any event, I have it probably in my top 4 or 5 sitcoms of all time - I thought it was exceptionally well done, well acted, well cast, and well written. Overlooked somewhat, because the 70s was fully of wonderful sitcoms.

Same thing happened with the movie Slap Shot.

I did not know that. Yes, it would definitely take away from the show if you don't actually hear the classic songs they're playing. I saw a show on a network recently, can't remember which one, and that got me into wanting to watch it again. Definitely have to have the original songs or it really isn't worth watching for the most part.

FWIW I did know the very first song Johnny played when he went to the new format just by the few notes played, but had to double check to make sure I was right: Nugent, Queen of the Forest. That's pretty good for not listening to that one in years ...


Oh, and


Boooo...Gaaarrrrr!

I just finished watching all of the 90 episodes again and I must say that this is one of the greatest shows of all time IMO.

The last season is really outstanding, too. It's not like it lost its luster. I'd put the last season right up there with the first.

As I was winding down and taking my time over the last few months watching them all when I had a little time, I got that feeling toward the end that I didn't want it to end, like you do with really good series.

I watched the ones with the original music and can't imagine even watching them without all the great songs in the background.

Bailey for a mate

Loni for a one timer or five

One of my favorite shows ever. It's on one of the sub-digital channels in nola all the time

Watched it last night and it was great, original music and all

They funny thing is that of all the radio stations I worked at....well they nailed all the characters, every station had a version of a WKRP character, sometimes everyone

As I was watching it made me wonder why we don't see the Rockford files on these sub stations. Loved that show as a kid too
