* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The NES game endlessly loops the title theme from the moment you start it, and there's no bonus round feature; while there was no way to replicate the music video finale of the show, a lack of a replacement makes every game finish anti-climactic (whoever has the most points after 3 simply wins the game).

* {{Troperrific}}: It's only natural that a show about TV trivia with the world's biggest fanboy as host and parodies of nearly every game show in the book is going to fall under this category.

* HilariousInHindsight: One of the channels was "Celebrity Square", which was allegedly their "cut-rate" version of ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'', because MTV could only afford a single square. In 2012, MTV2 aired the latest incarnation of that show, ''Hip-Hop Squares''.

** Depending on the channel, the organ tune that would accompany it would sound similar to the series' theme song or network jingle (ie- "The Movie Network" sounded similar to the tune of Creator/{{HBO}}'s famous "Starship" intro).

** The "lost episode from 1975", complete with Ober dressed as a 70's Alex Trebek, is comedic gold.
