* SpecialGuest: Many a politician or newsmaker has found themselves on the show, whether they agreed to it or not. Also, stars from other similar shows have made appearances, most notably when Rick Mercer from ''ThisHourHas22Minutes'' appeared to mentor character Seamus O'Toole, who was trying to deliver a "streeter"-style commentary in Rick Mercer's style.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: In-universe. One skit showed the schedule for upcoming shows for newly created cable channels. The network controlling these extra channels adored {{Seinfeld}}, because it appeared on all channels in the same timeslot. But not as much as the Seinfeld channel, which occupied every time slot.

* LimitedWardrobe: Jimmy and Seamus O'Toole. Seamus always wears a yellow raincoat and matching rain hat and Jimmy always wears the same outfit in black. The New Year's specials are a slight exception; Jimmy and Seamus have their collars pulled down to show that they're wearing tuxedos under their raincoats.

Added DiffLines:

** Heikki Flergenpootz and Svetlana start their news broadcasts by saying, "Goodnight," and end by saying, "Hello!"

Added DiffLines:
