[show]Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert famously turned down offers to guest star on TV shows and in movies because they felt it would have been a conflict of interest. But this turned out to be the exception and this is the only show in which they guest starred together. The episode was called "Siskel and Ebert and Jay and Alice" and the story is a parody of Sleepless in Seattle in which Jay and Alice attempt to patch things up between the duo when one of their verbal feuds causes them to split up.
- The awards that Jay has won over the years are two Pulitzer Prizes for criticism, a People's Choice award, a B'nai B'rith award, five Golden Glodes, a PhD in film, and an Emmy.
- After the show was cancelled, UPN offered to pick it up. About 9 or 10 Season 3 scripts were written.
