Ok, I know ALF was popular in the 80's during NBC primetime but I didn't think he was this popular. Anyways, I know that the series finally made it to a DVD set but a late night cable talk show on Fridays? What is the world coming to?
The talk show was originally going to be a series, and then TVLand decided it would be a one-shot thing, and just aired the pilot episode. The ratings were so good, you guessed it, they ordered more episodes. I think that's what we're now seeing.
I predict a 4 and a half hour snooze-fest with John stewert using the 'Uma... Oprah" joke at least once. I also predict there being too many people mentioning Heath Ledger. Three would be too many by my count.
