* FanserviceExtra: ''KYTV'' had the Dishy Dish Girls, who appeared in the channel's promotional material.



* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated: One episode opens with Mike Flex announcing the death of Mike Channel and launching into a snark-filled obituary, until he is interrupted by Channel himself, who naturally is unamused - not least because the announcement of his death has caused his one remaining show to be cancelled.

-->"But if we freeze the picture and zoom in... we can clearly see what appalling quality closed-circuit television is."

* {{Pixellation}}: "Hot Crimes" uses it to conceal the back of an informant's head. Shame they forgot to do it to the reflection of his face in the mirror -- or the sign giving his name.


Added DiffLines:

* RoadsideWave: In "Hot Crimes", Mike Channel repeatedly attracts these. After a while, he tries standing as far away from the road as he can, which doesn't help.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Mainly due to the adverts (a lot of which are parodies of then-current advertising campaigns) and the musical pastiches. Oddly enough, the rest of the show is much ''less'' dated than one would expect; in general, even if they're ostensibly mocking something specific, the parody still works in a more generic sense - for example, "Gigantaquiz" is a parody of a briefly-popular and now-forgotten game show called ''Ultra Quiz'', but it still works as a send-up of big set-piece game shows generally. Likewise, their parody of ''Did You See?'' still works as a send-up of arts discussion shows generally; ''The Flu Special'' which mocked the "AIDS: Don't Die of Ignorance" campaign, still works as a parody of public health campaigns generally, and so on.
