The filmmakers used the KOMO-TV studios in Seattle as sets - altering the logo to "KQMO-TV" - and many KOMO personalities make cameo appearances, among them Dan Lewis, Margo Myers, and Steve Pool.

When we see Lanie's "Seattle Life" billboard after she has decided to stay in Seattle, her name reads "Lanie Scanion", indicating that she and Pete didn't just talk about marriage, but that they really did get married and she even took his name.

When Lanie is in New York, she is told by the network guy that her live interview will be on at 8 a.m. When the morning show starts, the male host welcomes "all the viewers from the West Coast for this special live broadcast." Presumably, they are doing that because Lanie is from Seattle. During the interview, we see her sister and brother-in-law watching it in a sunny room in their mansion. Eight in the morning in New York is five in the morning in Seattle; the sun would not yet be up, especially in early autumn, when the movie takes place.

When Lanie (Angelina Jolie) is shown around the AM USA set for the first time, she and the producer enter a darkened set before someone flips a switch and everything is illuminated with crew members bustling about (cleaning, checking cameras, etc). As Lanie enters the set, you can clearly see all the crew members are already in position at their stations, standing completely still and waiting for the light cue to start moving.

When Pete and Lanie deliver Tommy at his mother's house, he is supposedly asleep on Lanie's shoulder and Pete has to wake him so he can get out of the car. But the actor playing Tommy visibly blinks as the car pulls to a stop and shuts his previously wide open eyes when the car comes to a stop, pretending to be asleep so Pete can 'wake' him.
