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.
The premise seems a little shaky to me, but I'll still give Bones a chance. Can't say no to David Boreanaz. And again, I reiterate, you can't have That 70's Show without Eric. It's on the level of bad ideas along the line of replacing Michael J.
