To make it look good, yeah, the erasing does take a bit of work and you have to be careful about what colors you wear. Our local meteorologist once showed us that they use a green screen, and that's why they never wear anything green. He came to work with a green tie to show everyone how if he wore a green tie, the weather image behind him showed where the tie is.

Here's a good example: (not the same guy I mentioned above, but shows how chromakey can be tricky to use)

So, the costume designer for QL had to make sure not to put any colors on Al's colorful costumes that would get detected as part of the chromakey (ie blue/green) screen.
