Episode Summary

Baby, If You've Ever Wondered
The new ratings book arrives, and WKRP has climbed from 16th to 14th place in the Cincinnati market. Everyone is happy about the gain except Andy, who knows that the station has not improved enough, in part because of his own unwillingness to fire incompetent employees like Herb and Les.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Music Changes: The song that accompanied the last scene of act 1 (with Andy pushing things off his desk) which was "Goodbye Stranger" by Supertramp has been replaced. Bailey's line in this scene has been dubbed over by a voice impersonator.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Andy: Let me ask you a question - am I the guard, or one of the nuts?
      Venus: I think you're a guard on the way to becoming a nut.

    • Andy: Now overall, you're no longer working for the sixteenth station in an eighteen station market.
      Venus: Yeah?
      Andy: No sirree. You're working for the fourteenth.

    • Les: It says here my audience share of men 65 and over went down six points.
      Herb: Let's face it Les--your audience is dying off.

  • NOTES (3)

    • The night this episode originally aired was the night of the Cincinnati Who concert at which some attendees were trampled to death due to the then legal practice known as "festival seating". That tragic night would be dramatized in the upcoming WKRP episode, "In Concert".

    • Songs: "Rockin' My Life Away" by Jerry Lee Lewis; "Goodbye Stranger" by Supertramp; "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson.

    • The episode title is taken from the opening lyric of the show's opening theme song.
