Yuppie and the Alien is a television show advertised in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, shown on VBC.

The show is possibly also a reference to the movie and/or series Alien Nation, although it is probably also an allusion to the fantastical "do-gooder" shows of the eighties in general (e.g.: Automan, Manimal, Knight Rider, The Powers of Matthew Star, et al). It cannot be watched by the player. Mr. Magic, the DJ on Wildstyle, detests the show.
