I know I can count on the Dope for this.

I remember seeing a news broadcast styled show on Detroit's WDIV which replaced SNL one Saturday (and only the one Saturday, AFAIK) back in '93 or '94. It was a rather intriguing show about an impending alien invasion. I clearly remember there were clear notices during commercial breaks that "This program is a work of fiction. It is not a real news broadcast."

Anyone else remember this?

I think that would be Without Warning (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111735/). I remember that movie 'cause it was real stupid.

ETA: Your memory serves you well: it was 1994, October 30 (same day Orson Welles' War of the Worlds radio show aired).

Could it have been this (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111735/)?

Without Warning

That looks like it could very well be it.

Thanks!
