* ''{{Space 1999}}'' '''begins''' in September 1999, but by the end of the series they must be well into the 2000s.

* Similar example: the awful final season of ''WelcomeBackKotter'', which was largely Kotter-free.
* ''FamilyAffairs'' was a British soap with the gimmick that, instead of focusing on a particular area, like ''EastEnders'' or ''CoronationStreet'', it focused on a specific family; the Harts and their inlaws the Gates. In its first ReTool (of many), the ''entire Hart/Gates family'' was written out.

* Narrowly averted with ''MarriedWithChildren''. The show's working title was ''Not The Cosbys'', a TakeThat to ''TheCosbyShow''. Given that ''MarriedWithChildren'' began three years after ''TheCosbyShow'' and continued long after ''Cosby'' ended, ''Not The Cosbys'' would quickly have become irrelevant.

* ''Series/TalesOfTheGoldMonkey'' only featured a single episode - ThePilot - where the monkey statute was the focus of Jake and Sarah's adventures, and at the end it's found to made of brass. It's relegated to the background for the remainder of the series's run.

* The title of ''Series/The100'' originally referred to the 100 people sent from an orbiting space station to explore the surface of post-apocalyptic Earth. The title went out the window almost immediately, as their numbers were reduced to 98 before the pilot was half over. It's become even more nonsensical in subsequent seasons, when hundreds more survivors have come to the surface.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' is called such because the main character wears a mask ("kamen" being the Japanese word for mask) and ''rides'' a motorcycle. Occasionally, there will be riders who lack one of these traits. ''Series/KamenRiderAmazon'' and ''Series/KamenRiderHibiki'' did not wear a mask, instead physically transforming into their rider forms. [[Film/ShinKamenRiderPrologue Shin Kamen Rider]] Not only lacks a mask for the same reason, but he also never rides his bike in his transformed state. ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' doesn't have a bike at all, and instead drives a car.

* The title character of ''Series/KamenRiderAmazon'' did not wear a mask, thus making the name a bit misleading ("kamen" is the Japanese word for "mask"; the title "Franchise/KamenRider" literally means "masked rider").

* Cable channel AMC has aired various after-shows hosted by comedian Chris Hardwick. The first, which concerns ''[[Series/TheWalkingDead Walking Dead]]'', is called ''Talking Dead''. With such an obvious play on words, there's no ambiguity about what show that title refers to. Next came the ''Series/BreakingBad'' final season after-show, ''Talking Bad''. This makes sense considering it's the same host and format as ''Talking Dead'', but it's not much of a pun on "Breaking Bad". Recently, AMC announced a new show to discuss ''Series/BetterCallSaul'' -- naturally, its title is ''Talking Saul''. It's not that it doesn't make sense -- it's a talk show about a show with "Saul" in the title -- but it's interesting that continuing the "Talking _______" title format quickly became more important than cleverness or clarity.
