"FYI" was an information series seen on the ABC network in the early 1980s. Hosted by Hal Linden (at the time the star of "Barney Miller"), the program features answers to questions that many viewers ask, from common questions such as, "What's the leading cause of burns in children?", to questions not many ask, but may be interesting to know, like "Can a child dance his/her way to better grades?", just to name a couple.

With each show lasting sixty seconds (including intros and outros), "FYI" was seen three times a day on weekdays, following ABC's popular soaps "All My Children", "One Life to Live" and "General Hospital", using a formula not unlike ABC's Saturday morning mini-programs, such as "Time for Timer", "The Bod Squad" and "Schoolhouse Rock".

Two books based on the television series have been published, both by M. Evans and Company: "FYI (For Your Information): Unexpected Answers to Everyday Questions" (1982) and "More FYI (For Your Information): Further Tips for Healthful Living" (1983).
