  • Thanksgiving promotion gone wild!

    Arthur Carlson wants to be more hands on in his radio station, so he takes it upon himself to set upthe station's Thanksgiving promotion. While the rest of the staff are skeptical at best, they allow the Big Guy to do his thing. When the big day arrives and Les Nesman is onthe scene providing the exclusive live coverage. What ensues is one of the funniest moments not only in the show's history, but likely in television in general. This episode is brilliantly written, and the comedic timing of the cast is spot on. Everyone gives star performances, but I will especially note Richard Sanders as Nessman and Gordon Jump as Carlson for their hilarious roles. The best thing about this episode is that they rely mostly on dialogue to describe what is happening. This allows your imagination to run wild and create an image that is still funny to this day. Being able to successfully and comedically tell a story on television without having you rely on the visuals is a tricky thing to do, and few do it better than the mighty WKRP.
