"Almost Live!" Alums Have Seattle's Number
Seattle has grown since KING 5's sketch comedy show Almost Live! left the air in 1999. Now some of the team that brought "The Lame List" and "COPS in Wallingford" to TV is back with a new show of modern-day Seattle-centric funny. The 206, starring Pat Cashman, John Keister and Chris Cashman, premieres tomorrow night. They join us in studio with a preview.
Also this hour: an investment group led by actor Patrick Dempsey has reportedly won an auction for the Tully's franchise. We get the scoop from Seattle Times business reporter Melissa Allison. Mary Lindquist, president of Washington state's largest teachers' union, explains her group's decision to explore a legal challenge to the state's new charter schools law. Seattle Times sportswriter Danny O'Neill tells us what to watch for in Sunday's Seahawks' playoffs matchup against the Redskins in D.C. Plus, Nick Bond joins us with a weekend weather forecast.
