** Herb was initially a womanizer who flirted with Jennifer constantly despite being married, as well as a man who has "three martini" lunches on a frequent basis. Both of these attributes were eventually changed- when Jennifer finally agrees to go on a date with Herb(in the hopes he won't go through with it), he finds he absolutely can NOT sleep with her, after which he cuts down on the flirting and focuses more on his family. Herb's martini habit goes from being merely a character trait to alcoholism when he realizes that he is drinking excessively and affecting his life and work, and puts an end to it.

* FunnyForeigner: Ivan Popasonoviski, the Russian defector in "The Americanization of Ivan," whose knowledge of American popular culture mostly comes from Elton John's then-recent tour of the Soviet Union ("Hold me closer, tiny dancer!")

* RedScare: Both played straight -- in a memorable episode in which Bailey helps a visiting Russian defect -- and parodied through Les, who was such a rabid anti-Communist that he rewrote the station's emergency procedures manual so that it would only be useful in the case of a Soviet invasion. When a tornado struck, he was forced to improvise from the manual while on the air, resulting in a long diatribe against "Godless tornadoes".

In addition, often lauded by RealLife radio-station employees as being a [[ShownTheirWork devastatingly accurate]] depiction of the industry, thanks to series creator and executive producer [[WriteWhatYouKnow Hugh Wilson's experience]] with same. Several of the more outrageous onscreen moments are actually the most realistic. As such, this show has been the general public impression of the commercial radio business for generations.

* MultipleEndings: Season One episode ''The Contest Nobody Could Win'' had two endings made, changing the last few scenes. The primary difference was whether or not Johnny shows up at the climax and stops the con artist. If he does, he returns the money and asks for his $7.50 back. If he doesn't, the last scene reveals that he was docked $5000 to pay Don Pesola and has made a commercial to try and raise money from listeners.
This list shows the last 10 events of 217. Show all.
