My favorite Christmas episode December 22, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff.

I was watching TV last night, which was a treat because I don’t usually find time to do that. I even fell asleep on the couch! It was bliss… Anyway, one of my favorite TV shows from my childhood, WKRP in Cincinnati, was on WGN, and it happened to be my all-time favorite Christmas episode of any TV series I’ve ever watched. It was “retro night,” which made me feel old, but I realized that, even though it was thirty years ago, the humor still translated. WKRP was about a struggling radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio and had a bunch of fun characters in it, Johnny Fever the drugged out DJ, Venus Flytrap the smooth black DJ, Herb the smarmy ad salesman, Les Nessman the geeky and clueless newsman, Andy the programming director, Bailey the shy news assistant, Jennifer the hot secretary, and Mr. Carlson the bumbling but big-hearted radio station manager. Anyway, the premise of the Christmas episode was that everyone thought Jennifer, who was always super classy and had lots of rich admirers, would be alone for the holidays and so they all came over separately to surprise her on Christmas Eve. Hilarity ensued. Part 3 is my favorite part, but I have included all three parts in case you want to see the whole episode. Part 3 has a little foreign language, some hilarity, and lots of heart. I hope you find it as funny as I do.

If you want to see the episode from the beginning here are part 1:

and part 2:

But, as I said, my favorite part is part 3:

Merry Christmas, everyone!
