Apr. 9th, 2004 @ 10:47 pm I like NewsRadio.
Perhaps you didn't know this about me. NewsRadio is, to me, one of the 5 funniest sitcoms ever shown on television (it used to be number 1 but I can't say that anymore with both Malcolm in the Middle and Arrested Development out there.) I'm TiVOing it off of the Biography Channel and watching it all the time. Good times, good times.

I am not, however, like these people or these people although I did find the latter's website fascinating.

I am trying to figure out where the building that's portrayed as the NewsRadio building actually is in New York City. I saw, on the episode I watched tonight ("Injury"), a West 40th street sign in the shot. There's also a Western Union storefront and a TGI Friday's visible. This shouldn't be too hard to figure out. Surprisingly, all I can find about it is that in the show they say the office is on Madison Avenue. More research is necessary.

what is your preference: news radio with Phil Hartman, or post phil hartman.

In my opinion, phil hartman made the show. He's also probably my favorite SNL actor.

The Phil Hartman shows were better, but I'm a big Jon Lovitz fan. The show never really recovered after Hartman's death, and they never really figured out how to write Jon's character in to the show. Then in the last season they did the whole Lisa getting married thing, which was dumb (although, again, I'm a big Patrick Warburton fan.)

I'm with you.

I used to spend my lunch hours from the church watching newsradio on A&E. I'm a sucker for stuff like that.
