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:

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.
