** Satan is a real flesh & blood person and appears on a trashy talk show.
*** The film never confirms this. This troper always figured it was just a really dedicated Satanist in costume.

* MarketBasedTitle: Since the concept of UHF stations are not commonly known overseas, they asked Al for an alternate title. He suggested "The Vidiot", or "Vidiots". The film was then released in some countries, much to Al's chagrin, as "The Vidiot From UHF", succeeding only in transforming an incomprehensible title to a terrible one. The Latin-American Spanish dub is known as "Los Telelocos" ("The TV Crazies" in English)[[note]]Which seems to be a fairly common practice, with ''Film/{{Caddyshack}}'' being renamed ''Los locos del [=Golf=]'' (''The Golf Crazies''), and ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' being renamed ''Locademia de Policia'' (''Crazy Academy of Police'').[[/note]] and the French one as "Télé Ringards" ("TV Dorks" in English).
** CompletelyDifferentTitle: It had quite a plethora of foreign language titles in general; In Hungary it was released as ''Az őrület hullámhosszán'', loosely translated as ''Wavelength of Madness''. In Finland it was titled ''Kaapelit irti!'', or ''Cable, Go!''. In Norway it was ''Lufta er for alle'' (''Air for Everyone''), the Greece release had the mouthful of a title ''Ο πιο κουφος σταθμος στην πολη'' (''The Most Wacky Station in the City''), and Germany added a [[TheForeignSubtitle subtitle]] of ''Sender mit beschränkter Hoffnung'' (''Broadcast of Limited Hope'').



* MythologyGag: Look very closely at the model railroad town in Stanley Spadowski's Clubhouse; the model movie theater is playing "Slime Creatures from Outer Space" (a song on Al's 3rd album). Also, next door is a Belvedere Hotel, possibly but not-too-likely a reference to a teenage Al's "Belvedere Cruising".
