Trivia: Touched by an Angel
- Actor Allusion: Rose's story in the season 8 episode "The Bells Of Saint Peter's" guest stars Doris Roberts as a older woman who is sticking her nose in the affairs of the life of a younger woman she is related to. Sound familar?
- Executive Meddling: The original concept toed the line between "God Is Evil" and "Humans are just another of God's Wonderful Toys", but CBS fired the creator when he refused to write more idealistic episodes.
- Hey, It's That Guy!/ Hey, It's That Voice!: The show had many actors/actresses on the show including Rue McClanahan (from The Golden Girls), Bumper Robinson (from Transformers Animated), Dante Basco, James Earl Jones, Maureen McCormick (from The Brady Bunch), Bill Cosby, Melissa Gilbert (from Little House on the Prairie), Judith Hoag (from Halloweentown), Jean Stapleton (from All in the Family), Mandy Patinkin, Dwight Schultz, and more.
- In fact (depending on your knowledge of minor celebrities and character actors), almost every episode can be thought of as "The One With (Insert Name of Famous Person Here)".
- Some of the actors in it went on to become famous later leading to Retroactive Recognition, such as Zachary Quinto and Hayden Pannttiere.
- *NSYNC made a cameo as basically busker versions of themselves singing on the street.
- What Could Have Been: Bill Cosby was originally going to make a guest appearance as the "Angel of Fun", but this was cancelled when his son Ennis was murdered. He subsequently appeared in two episodes as the Angel of Reconciliation. (He is sent to reconcile a father with a son the father thought was dead. Cosby's theme was "Never mind old quarrels, you should be glad your son is alive"...)
