The (206) (styled “The [206]” on-screen) is a local sketch comedy television show in Seattle, Washington, broadcast by NBC affiliate KING-TV, that premiered on January 6, 2013. The show is broadcast on Sunday at 1:00 AM (Pacific), following Saturday Night Live. It is the successor to Almost Live! and much of the comedy is related to Seattle events and culture.

After two initial episodes, the show left the schedule locally, however, it returned for a full season on April 27, 2013. The first season consists of 12 episodes, the last of which aired July 28, 2013. In addition, the "Not Especially Special, Special" was aired on July 7, 2013.

The second season began on November 16, 2013, and ended on May 3, 2014.

The third season began on October 18, 2014, but without John Keister; it was announced he left the show to pursue other interests. When contacted by the Seattle Times, Keister explained that he was happy that he was able to help get The 206 up and running, "but everyone is working for almost nothing." He said he is now putting together a one-man show called "The Keister Monologues." [1]
