I was going to save this for closer to Thanksgiving but I thought I would share simply the funnest sitcom segment ever. It was the Thanksgiving episode of WKRP in 1978. We all had a bad week so we all need a laugh.

The Big Guy, the owner’s son, had an idea of having a Turkey Give Away. Big Guy was a real nice good hearted man but well dumb as a rock at times. Les Nessman who could not get hired anywhere else was the news man and did the on site turkey give away.

Most of the segment is at the radio booth anchored by Johnny Fever and in the booth were the station manager and others listening in. Their reactions are priceless.

Who said TV can’t educate.
