Almost Live! (1984) originally began its 6:00 PM Sunday evening run as a show called "REV" ("Rock Entertainment Videos"), a local showcase for music videos and live performances in the early days of MTV. It eventually evolved a talk show format with host Ross Shafer, still focusing on music with a few comedy acts. As the show shifted more toward comedy, it officially became Almost Live! (1984).

Had a short run on the Ha! network (which eventually evolved into Comedy Central). Despite their producing some non-Seattle-centric skits, it never caught on with a national audience.

On Friday April 1, 1989, King 5 in Seattle, Washington aired a special April Fools edition of Almost Live! It opened with a Special Report that the Space Needle crashed to the ground. Although in jest, King 5 and Almost Live! got in trouble when people took the fake special report seriously, by tying up the 9-1-1 lines. A month later, they received a "pardon" by then-Washington State Governor Booth Gardner.
