This is the third time Peter has created television shows to amuse himself. He did it in "I Never Met the Dead Man" by wearing a cardboard cutout of a TV screen and walking about town looking through it, and in "PTV" when he and the gang created their own cable TV station to fight government censorship.
In the promos for this episode, the names "Jessica Alba" and "Home Depot" were bleeped to avoid payment of the names.
Peter broadcasts his show from Quahog Cable 26. However, a van is parked at the studio with the number 27 on it.
During the premiere broadcast of this episode, a trailer for Seth MacFarlane's film Ted debuted.
