Sparky Anderson...TV Star

I'm not sure about you, but I actually remember Sparky Anderson when he appeared on "WKRP in Cincinnati".

Now, admittedly, I didn't see the initial airing on December 24, 1979...but I do remember seeing it once it hit syndication.  That said, I know for a fact that I've never seen the 1980 episode of "The White Shadow" that featured the World Series winning skipper.

But enough about that.

The plot of the 12th episode of WKRP's second season is simple enough:

Mr. Carlson hires legendary baseball manager Sparky Anderson as the host of a new sports interview show. (courtesy of EPGuides.com)

Check out the show in its entirety below.  Good stuff.
