    One of the most overlooked sitcoms ever. The cast is fantastic. Very goofy humor, that I think anyone could enjoy. Its a shame not many people know about it.

    Phil Hartman's last substantive work before his all too early demise, and without a doubt his finest. NewsRadio is without a doubt one of the most underrated shows on television, with an ensemble cast that excels in all aspects. No character is showcased too prominently, and that leads to a more beneficial atmosphere in the show as each character is given the chance to develop.

The show combines smart humor with slapstick comedy in an excellent way that still hasn't been discovered by most audiences today, and it definitely should be. Expand

    Despite being so derivative, it is brimming with promise. [21 Mar 1995]

    Sprightly, sharp, caustic and, most of all, funny. [21 Mar 1995]

    It's not as nasty as "Larry Sanders," but "NewsRadio" will tickle discerning audiences with its finely tuned sense of irony and its frank handling of office intrigue, power struggles and sexual tension. [21 Mar 1995]
