"WKRP in Cincinnati" (1978-1982)
What Still Works: An assortment of weirdos stuck working together never gets old (see "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation"), and the show managed to find rich comedic material in the trials of a program director (Gary Sandy) charged with completely changing the format of a failing radio station. The humor was cut with topical storylines (Venus Flytrap, played by Tim Reid, was a Vietnam deserter) and stories had no problem taking down stereotypes (Jennifer Marlowe, played by Loni Anderson, was much more than eye candy).
What Doesn't: Does anyone listen to the radio anymore?
How We'd Change It: Ask Aaron Sorkin to remember what he did with "Sports Night" and channel that, not "Steve Jobs," here.
