12/12. Guessed right on #10, but I don't understand what it's talking about.

12/12 as well. number 10 is referring to one of their best episodes. The station is doing a Thanksgiving Turkey give away. The head guy, Mr. Carlson decides to give away live turkeys and then starts dropping them out of a helicopter over a shopping mall. Needless to say, the result was pandemonium. the iconic line he says when he gets back to the station is "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."

That was sorta a bad choice, you were supposed to describe a series, not a random episode. That concept is better suited to a different quiz!

"Oh the humanity!"
I beg to differ.
The title of the quiz, 'Can you guess the TV show from these intentionally vague fan descriptions?',
set the parameters of the quiz.
There are two things WKRP is noted for; 1) Loni Anderson, and 2) the turkeys. Ask any fan, and they will tell you the same.
Most of those who are not fans relate the turkey episode as WKRP.
How would you describe WKRP, within the given parameters?
