An almost perfect show. Hilarious screwball workplace comedy that blends high and low comedy masterfully. Few shows have been this clever.
The cast is amazing too: Dave Foley, the amazing Phil Hartman (until he was murdered, in the 5th season he was replaced by Jon Lovitz), Stephen Root, Maura Tierney, Vicki Lewis, Joe Rogan, Andy Dick (maybe the only good thing Andy Dick has ever done) and amazingly sexy Khandi Alexander (until she left the show).

NewRadio was a very enjoyable show about a news radio station and its eccentric employees. I watched the show when it came out and really enjoyed it. Phil Hartman was an important character in the show until his death in 1998."
“I sat down and began watching this show from the start again recently (I have seen it many, many times years ago when it was still airing all the time on TV), and I forgot how great the show is. I love Dave Foley and Stephen Root, and of course, Phil Hartman. It's got a great cast, great writing, and stayed pretty strong throughout it's run. A good comedy to watch and watch again.” read more

"It's hard to pick a favorite child or a favorite NewsRadio episode. NewsRadio is such a great show, with great writing, superior physical humor and a cast that was always firing on all cylinders, so that every episode is a gem. However, I have to give some love to "Office Feud," which features the woefully underused Catherine (Khandi Alexander) getting the best of Bill for his sponsorship of Rocket Fuel malt liquor. It's crizappy!"
