* WeirdAlEffect: Many younger fans of Creator/GeorgeCarlin may not know that his "Queenie For a Day" skit was based on this show. It was part of a fake TV lineup that also included a parody of the far more well-known ''TruthOrConsequences''...and the two fake game shows are connected by a BrickJoke.

* YourMileageMayVary: While many bash ''QueenForADay'', those crowned Queen don't seem to hate the show. Some winners of the original run started a club called "''Queen For A Day'', Queen Forever"; although nobody seems to know how long the club lasted, a segment was dedicated to it in a 1984 {{BBC}} documentary on American game shows.
