On The Ten Best Comedy Pilots in TV History

Before all those, there was WKRP in Cincinnati, and the first episode set up the character plots perfectly. It took viewers through the rest of its run. Howard Hessman as Doctor Johnny Fever screaming "Booger" live on the air was just perfect! The look on the face of the staff when Venus Flytrap (Tim Reid) enters is absolutely priceless! How gut shaking funny was Les Nessman (Richard Sanders), who had a running gag with a bandage on every show. I guess that's what happens when you're too young to remember this show. Try Hulu!
