* Jay Leno is an example of this happening with a person instead of a show. In 1992, Creator/{{NBC}} picked him to host ''Series/TheTonightShow'' over Creator/DavidLetterman when Johnny Carson retired. In 2009/2010, after an abortive shot at a UsefulNotes/PrimeTime VarietyShow and some [[ScrewedByTheNetwork serious]] ExecutiveMeddling, he returned to ''The Tonight Show'' at the expense of Creator/ConanOBrien. This was followed by a [[InternetBackdraft major uproar]]

**** It also happened on WETA in the year 2000. In March 2000, the "A Fish Story" episode of ''Series/TheNoddyShop'' aired every single day the week of March 19, 2000, the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode "Meek for a Week; Arthur, World's Greatest Gleeper" aired twice each week, the ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'' episode "Going On A Bear Hunt" aired every week and the ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' "Dragon Drop; Cassie Loves A Parade" played every weekend.

* NBC and its sister networks are so in love with the ''Franchise/LawAndOrder'' franchise that even when it started to die off (around 2005, with the death of Jerry Orbach and the cancellation of ''Trial By Jury''), NBC refused to kill it. Even when ''Law and Order: Los Angeles'' (which was picked up by NBC despite a weak pilot because of its name) was declared the FranchiseKiller, NBC and USA continued to keep its spinoffs around since it was filling time slots and was still bringing audiences in on the latter (while the ratings on NBC had been in decline for years).

* Parodied on ''Radio/RoyalCanadianAirFarce'' with a TV guide describing extra channels for cable. ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' was listed at least once per channel, even on the science fiction channels or other speciality channels where its otherwise unsuitable. The skit finished with the Seinfeld channel - which was filled with the Seinfeld show.

* Australian network [=ABC4Kids=] loves ''Series/SesameStreet'' and its spinoffs so much that they (as of 2015) even have a phase of taking down ''Sesame'' clips on Website/YouTube, claiming that they are "The Real Sesame Street".
** Speaking of Sesame Street, there was a phase in June/July of 2015 where the PBS affiliate in New Jersey and New York, WNET, loved showing the episode "Veggies Revolt" at least once each week. Two years later, they are quite fond of showing the episode "When Dinosaurs Roamed Sesame", as well as the special "The Cookie Thief".
*** The "repeated episodes" problem also happens with other kids' shows on WNET and their kids' subchannel, Kids 13, as well. For example, they show the ''WesternAnimation/ThomasAndFriends'' episode "There's Always A Good Explanation" at least four times a week between WNET and the Kids' Thirteen channel, the Caillou episode "Knowing I'm Growing" every other week on Kids Thirteen, the Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood episode "Neighborhood Thank You Day; Thank You, Grandpere Tiger!" twice a week and the ''Series/OddSquad'' episode "And Then They Were Puppies; A Case of the Sillies" three times a week.
** Surprisingly, after the Sesame/''Creator/HBO'' deal, the HBO Family channel isn't doing this with Sesame reruns, instead usually having one or two airings in the morning, while the afternoon is used for the family friendly movies airing on the HBO networks. This trope was however played straight with ''Once Upon A Sesame Street Christmas'', as it was aired once a day for the whole month of December, with some days having two airings.

** Speaking While PBS is accustomed to giving each of Sesame Street, there was a phase their shows equal attention, in June/July of 2015 they (or at least its flagship station WNET) went through a period where the PBS affiliate in New Jersey and New York, WNET, loved showing they couldn't go one week without screening the episode "Veggies Revolt" at least once each week.

* Canadian media company Creator/CorusEntertainment really enjoys using ''Series/JustForLaughsGags'' to plug holes in schedules on their family-oriented channels, presumably to fulfill the [[ExecutiveMeddling mandated quota]] of Canadian-produced programming that all channels must broadcast. Perhaps that is why they have seemingly spammed it across at least ''six'' different channels, even W Movies (which was supposed to be a channel airing movies for women. Thankfully its replacement, Cooking Channel, does not.)

* NBC has a nasty habit of doing this, keeping low-rated shows in prime timeslots in the hope that they will build an audience. Almost certainly done because this worked with {{Series/Cheers}}. Good Morning Miami held a slot in the Must See TV lineup on Thursdays despite dismal ratings. It isn't even mentioned in Warren Littlefield's book ''Top of The Rock'', and is so unpopular that it doesn't even have a page in this wiki.

* When they aren't running a new episode of ''{{WWE Raw}}'', ''Series/BurnNotice'', ''Series/{{Psych}}'', ''Series/CovertAffairs'', or any of the original shows on the network, Creator/{{USA Network}} is pretty much known as "The ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' and ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' channel."

* There are been times, no matter which station plays it, when ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' will be on morning, noon, and night. As of this writing, TBS still plays it in the mornings. Since the show is available for barter, when a station sells ad time in exchange for the show, cable and local stations get WillSmith for ''free''.

** ''Salvage Hunters'' is by far the most popular original show on UK network Quest, and they really milk it, showing it practically every day. On the rare evenings it's not showing an episode or two (or more), it's probably showing ''Series/AmericanPickers'', the show that ''Salvage Hunters'' is the TransatlanticEquivalent of.
