* ReTool: Was made from the remains of the beloved Tech TV show ''TheScreenSavers''
* RoleEndingMisdemeanor: An extremely unusual twist on this occurred following ''Proving Ground'' star Ryan Dunn's death in a drunk driving accident. ''AOTS'' did a tribute show on the night G4 started airing the show again, and Kevin remarked (quite seriously) that while they can't condone Dunn getting behind the wheel while drunk, they aren't going to let that one bad decision tarnish their friendship with and fond memories of him.

** The final episode brought back the original ''Screen Savers'' hosts, Leo Laporte and Patrick Norton, with the whole show being a dream of Leo's who comments how weird it was with Tech TV being sold and the changes that had (and in reality, did) happen to the network. If that wasn't enough, the last shot closes on them flying on jetpacks to a building still sporting the Tech TV logo. Apparently the staff shared the fans sentiments on missing the old network.

* BackForTheFinale: The original two hosts, Leo Laporte and PatrickNorton, appear in the very last scene of the show. [=TechTV=] as a studio gets this as well.

* StockSitcomGrandFinale: Kevin's last episode closes out this way, with him walking past a host of his older costumes before putting his jacket and tie on the last, undressed dummy, and then turning off the lights and leaving. Of course, he gets a more comedic sendoff by being offed by an old persona.

* IBangedYourMom: In one episode, Kevin says that he's "having an affair" with Candace's mother, and proceeds to tease Candace with this repeatedly. At one point, Candace's mom calls in to the show, and proceeds to play along, much to her daughter's horror. [[https://youtu.be/4m4lXpaV68s It's a must-see.]]
