Trivia: Stay Tuned
  • Actor Allusion: At one point, Roy Knable stumbles through a channel onto the set of the television show that catapulted John Ritter to fame in the 1970s. Two women dressed as Chrissy Snow and Janet Wood shout "Where have you been?", a snippet of the Theme Song plays, and Roy screams in terror, trips over the couch, and changes the channel.
  • Creator Backlash: Bruce Broughton, who scored the film, called both the soundtrack album and the movie terrible. Indeed, the rap music that takes up eight of the ten cuts on the album don't really fit the movie (even though they're mostly relegated to the end credits).
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Jeffrey Jones, who you might remember from another movie around that time called Beetlejuice.
  • Not Screened for Critics
  • Similarly Named Works: Eugene Levy starred in a 70's TV series called Stay Tuned.
  • What Could Have Been: Mike Myers and Dana Carvey were almost cast as Wayne and Garth IN HELL!, but since they were shooting Wayne's World, a parody was made instead.
