A Classic Reborn: The New WKRP in Cincinnati (1991)

Nearly 10 years after the original series ended, The New WKRP in Cincinnati hit the airwaves in syndication. Not everyone was back, as Howard Hesseman (Johnny Fever) and Tim Reid (Venus Flytrap) had moved on to other series. Hesseman, in fact, was starring on ABC's Head of the Class at the time, and only made guest appearances in this series. Reid had switched gears to drama, landing a supporting role in the 80's on CBS' Simon & Simon before moving back to comedy later in the 90's (Sister, Sister).

The revival lasted two seasons, or one year less than the original.

Following is an episode that brought back Tim Reid as Venus Flytrap.

No rating.
