Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The lyrics describe a man who is desperate to appear on Geraldo, Sally Jessy Raphael, or any other daytime talk show and talk about his bizarre relationships, uncommon family relations, and his unusual opinions.
  • This song was originally written to be a theme song for the TV show of the same name, which aired from 1991 to 2002 before being revamped as The Soup. The featured clips from the previous week's various talk shows being riffed on by the hosts. The "E!" at the end is Al name-dropping the show's network. The song was ultimately rejected as a theme.
