"FYI" was a mini-program wherein individual episodes were one minute long. It aired for a few years during the early 1980s. It was hosted by Hal Linden, who talked about informational topics such as "Exercise Your Mind," "Snow Shoveling Safely" and "Good News After Turning 40." The title "FYI" is shorthand for the phrase "For Your Information."

The show opens briefly with a dramatic logo of the letters "FYI" in red on a blue background. The letter "I" opens up as if it is a door and shows more "doors" opening within it, as if to suggest that knowledge or information opens doors. Then it proposed a topic and gave a quick run down of important information in a nutshell. Sometimes, Hal Linden merely expounded on the topic, often while dressed in a nice business suit giving him an air of trustworthiness to match his demeanor. In other cases, he demonstrated the topic, such as in the episode about shoveling snow safely.

It aired three times per day after various popular daytime dramas. It took up a 60 second slot during a routine commercial break.
