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 saw it in 3D and it was enjoyable but not this awe inspiring best of all time, mega meaningful epic. My daughter and I tried to figure all the movies he ripped off. There was a really excellent 120-140 minute movie hiding in there.
