The Groove Tube (1974)'s "Channel One Evening News" skit and its tagline, 'Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow,' was the direct inspiration for "Weekend Update" on Saturday Night Live (1975). Chevy Chase, the original Weekend Update anchorman, was featured in this film, although Ken Shapiro played the Channel One anchorman in the movie. See more »

West German release was reedited in an attempt to make the film funnier. This version runs two approx. two minutes shorter. See more »
We showed this movie at the local Film Society, and the art-house crowd had the time of their cinematic lives. It's tasteless, groovy and very funny in a sixties kind of way. The Kraft Kitchen recipe sketch had them laughing like maniacs. The rest is a mixed bag, but the highs definitely beat the lows. By the way, whatever happened to Ken Shapiro??
