Trivia

On Friday April 1, 1989, King 5 in Seattle, Washington aired a special April Fools edition of Almost Live! It opened with a Special Report that the Space Needle crashed to the ground. Although in jest, King 5 and Almost Live! got in trouble when people took the fake special report seriously, by tying up the 9-1-1 lines. A month later, they received a "pardon" by then-Washington State Governor Booth Gardner. See more »

There -were- alternatives to SNL once.
24 February 2003 | by L_MillerSee all my reviews

This was one of the most consistently funny shows I've ever seen. Even SCTV in the early years would occasionally meander off somewhere that made you want to get up and get a soda.

"Almost Live" was kinda like Conan O' Brien's show on those rare nights when he's really on, just off-the-wall observational humor and completely silly stuff like "High-Fivin' White Guys", which was hilarious.

I really wish this would come out on DVD instead of craptastic tripe like "Scary Movie" and oh-boy-more-reality shows.
