So who all watched the ALF talk show with Ed McMahon as co-host on TV land? Think it was on Sunday night...

Ok, so this is old news. But who here is surprised that Alf reruns failed to do anything on Nick or TV land. That show I believe was just as popular and Iconic as the Cosby's

I think Alf was a good show, but it's not the kind of show I'd want to see in reruns all the time. I'd rather see Mr. Belvedere or the Wonder Years.

That's true.

I'm actually the other way around, but then that's probably because I've seen reruns of Mr. Belvedere and The Wonder Years so many more times than I've seen reruns of ALF. Course, I've seen reruns of Three's Company more than any of the three combined and I'd still rather watch it so...

I never "got" Alf.  Only watched it once and just did not find it appealing.  Actually thought he was more irritating than anything.  IMO

I really enjoyed Alf as an eight-year-old kid, but I doubt that I could watch an episode of the show today...  ;D

What year was ALF on TV?  I want to think that it was on when I was in high school or college - which might explain my lack of interest in it.

I enjoyed ALF for what it was - a kind of 'Harry and the Hendersons' style format that could have worked better if ALF was more engaging as a character.

Well that would it explain it for me.  I was in college in 1986 and I did not really watch a lot of TV - too many other things to do - and I guess ALF just did not catch my attention.    :-\\
