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.
That's not Austin St. John who played the original Red Power Ranger, then later the Gold Zeo Ranger. Quit your speculation. The old thread goes to a satire website where someone is writing lies, with little actual happenings.
