Title Season # Series #
"Pilot" 1 1

Roz develops a reputation as a hard-ass after yelling at Noel on her first day running KACL. Worried that she can’t be the employees’ friend now that she is their boss, Roz plans a party for everyone at the station to show that she is still the same woman. Things inevitably go awry when an old-fashioned game of Spin the Bottle gets out of hand due to Bulldog’s eagerness to kiss Roz, and Gil repeatedly criticises her snacks. The next day, Roz is still being called a hard-ass, so she impulsively gives everyone the day off. However, the station owner is outraged with what she has done and forces her to take over all the shows for the day, including the newly re-instated Gonzo Sports Show. As Roz wrestles with difficult callers and subjects she knows nothing about, she begins to wonder whether her new career is as glamorous as she anticipated.

"One Flu Over the Cuckoo’s Nest" 2 2

Gil gets the flu and finds himself struggling to review restaurants for his show, no longer being able to taste.

Meanwhile, Bulldog loses his traditional horn and is forced to hire Noel to help him with sound effects on the Gonzo Sports Show.

"To Be or Not to Bebe" 3 3

Bulldog re-hires Bebe Glazer as his agent, but Roz is angry after finding out that he is still angling for a better job than the one he has at KACL. When Bebe gets him a spot on a television deodorant commercial, Bulldog is forced to choose between furthering his career or keeping Roz as his friend. Disgusted at the ethics he has been reduced to, Bulldog takes Gil and Noel for a "depraved" guys night out which ends in calamity. Bulldog finally turns down the commercial offer and Roz is delighted, but both find themselves faced with the wrath of Bebe as a consequence.

"Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore" 4 4

Alice is spending more time with her new friend and Roz begins to miss her. She encourages Alice to invite her friends over for a slumber party but only embarrasses her. For the first time, Roz feels truly middle-aged and becomes determined to recapture her youth. When Roz shows up at the station wearing a leather jacket and talking in lingo that nobody understands, Noel decides to stage an intervention. Bulldog loves her Roz's outgoing personality, which may be just the thing needed to snap her back to her senses. Meanwhile, Gil tries out some new dialects when a caller criticises his "phoney" British accent.

"Noel’s Arc" 5 5

Noel loses his groove after making a mistake in the middle of a show and enlists the help of Roz to get it back. As they spend more time together, Roz begins to wonder if Noel has ulterior motives and is convinced that he is trying to win her heart. Just as Noel is starting to get back his old skills, Roz spoils it by overreacting to a light-hearted comment, and he locks himself in the bathroom right before he is needed on a show. Meanwhile, Bulldog struggles to take his eyes off his new producer in the wake of a recent verbal warning.

"Motherhood of the Roz" 6 6

In the process, she is dismayed to learn that everybody at KACL loves Bulldog and becomes determined to find out why. Roz discovers that the staff are faking because Bulldog still has access to the station records and knows many of their dirtiest secrets, so she encourages them to join her in getting revenge. As they set their plan in motion, Roz becomes more concerned about a secret of her own coming out. Meanwhile, Gil brings his cat to the station in an attempt to make it the new mascot.
