* Two different episodes of ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' have made references to ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'', a nod to John Schneider (who plays Jonathan Kent) having played Bo Duke. In the episode "Nicodemus," Jonathan Kent is listening to Waylon Jennings' "The Good Ol' Boys" (the theme song of ''The Dukes of Hazzard'') while driving in his truck. In "Exposed," Tom Wopat (who played Luke Duke) guest stars as Jake Jennings, an [[IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine old friend of Jonathan's]] who arrives in a Dodge Charger similar to the General Lee, kicking off a number of {{homage}}s to ''The Dukes of Hazzard'' throughout the episode.

* The ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'' episode "Battle of the Network Stars" features almost as many allusions as scenes. When Sonny (DemiLovato) says "nobody knows me the way that I know me", immediately followed by guest star SelenaGomez (the actress' real-life best friend) entering; Selena says she was in 'Camp Hip Hop' (a play on ''Film/CampRock'', starring Demi Lovato), Sonny accuses Selena of acting like "some kind of relationship wizard" (Selena Gomez stars in another Disney show called ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'') and at the end there's a 'Camp Hip Hop' trailer featuring three boys who look a lot like TheJonasBrothers (who were in ''Camp Rock''). Also, Chad tells Sonny if she thinks she'll ever be BFFs with Selena Gomez, to which she replies "it could happen".

** We meet Jeff's half-brother, Willy Jr., in Season 4's Thanksgiving episode. Willy Jr. (played by [[{{Workaholics}} Adam DeVine]]) nearly vomits from anxiety when first meeting Jeff, and claims that this is a frequent problem for him. [[DawsonCasting DeVine]] had a major role in the musical comedy ''Film/PitchPerfect'', which had another main character suffer from the same thing ([[VomitIndiscretionShot in spectacular CGI, no less]]).
