* Soap operas are called that because the earliest examples were radio serials that were sponsored by soap manufacturers. Modern soap operas aren't--though ''GuidingLight'' and ''AsTheWorldTurns'' were produced by soap and detergent manufacturer Proctor and Gamble's in-house production company up until 2008.

* Series 7 onwards of the UK version of ''Series/TheApprentice'' has nothing to do with an apprentice, as the contestants are now competing for £250,000 and Lord Sugar as a buisness partner.

* The beginning of Season 5 of ''Series/BurnNotice'' Michael Westen was shown working directly with his former employers and seems to be no longer blacklisted, effectively reverting his [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burn_notice_%28document%29 Burn Notice]] that the series was based on. While Michael's personal situation may have changed the show's MythArc became less about his search for the truth and more about the organization that operates by burning spies.

* For the 2015 US TV season, Fox premiered a TV show based on the movie ''Film/MinorityReport''. However, it's set ten years after the time of that film, in which the "precogs" have been released to live ordinary lives and are not used in anticipating crimes uncommitted. So that means that the title is an artifact, since in both the movie and the Creator/PhilipKDick novel it was based on, the title refers to the idea that one of the three precogs might see a different future, something that can't happen with the changed premise.
* German family show ''Die Montagsmaler'' ("monday's scribblers"). When ExecutiveMeddling moved their time slot around, they rather kept their AddedAlliterativeAppeal than to rename. Uhm, "Dienstagsdrudler"?

* ''Las Noches del Futbol'' from the Monterrey, Mexico-based Multimedios sounds like a [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball soccer]] fan's dream show (the show's title translates to "Football Nights"), but since its premiere during the 2006 [[UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup World Cup]] it slowly and eventually ditched all of the soccer discussion and subjects and has since become a VarietyShow hosted by Ernesto Chavana with singing, dancing, a regular segment dealing with the paranormal, and even a ShowWithinAShow RealityShow invoving the family of regular guest/luchador/rap artist Konan Big. The only talk about soccer was limited to the network's sports division cutting in with generic Monday morning training session video from Monterrey and Tigres during sports reports. Eventually Multimedios finally realized the title was a confusing artifact, and in October 2016 moved the title to a new Saturday night show with an actual focus on soccer, while the original show with Ernesto Chavana became ''Es Show'' (though the '''new''' show also devolved rather quickly into a skit show due to ratings issues).

** The writers must love this trope, because it also happened on ''Siete Vidas'''s SpinOff ''Aida'', since the eponymous character was [[PutOnABusToHell jailed]] and ceased to appear ([[RealLifeWritesThePlot Her actress had to leave]]) and thus the reason the show has that name is gone. They attempted to placate this by adding Aida's granddaughter, also called Aida, but she is a very secondary character and has a lot less screentime than her protagonist namesake did.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' takes place in a space station around the planet Bajor. A stable orbit does not quite qualify as a 'trek,' nor, as fans often joke, though the characters do much trekking. (This was one reason the writers gave the crew the starship ''Defiant''.) Even after the introduction of the ''Defiant'', there isn't a lot of trekking going on. The ''Defiant's'' main role is to protect the station and the wormhole from [[TheEmpire The Dominion]].

* ''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.

* ''Series/TheTudors'', after the death of [[spoiler:Henry's sister]] doesn't actually have any other main characters who are members of UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfTudor (Mary and Elizabeth are there, but the show stops before they actually do anything important). You could argue Henry's wives count, but the show is still mostly only about ''one'' Tudor.

* Croatian soap-opera ''Zabranjena ljubav'' (translated, ''Forbidden love'') focused on two twins separated at birth who unfortunately fell in love with each other...and at one point one of the twins dies. The show goes on focusing on the other twin and other characters, until that twin gets left out...and the show still went on.

* ''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 (though, other Riders introduced later in the series do have bikes.) Even when the riders do have bikes, however, they rarely get used nowadays unless the plot specifically requires them.

* The award-winning NBC News magazine "Weekend" began as a once-a-month program, hosted solo by Lloyd Dobyns, airing late on Saturday. When ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' became a hit and NBC started begrudging the one night a month when SNL couldn't air, the magazine was "promoted" to weekly prime-time status... with no definite time slot. New co-anchor Linda Ellerbee found herself introducing one broadcast with "This show is called 'Weekend.' Yes, we know it's Wednesday..."

** Creator/CartoonNetwork became this for a time when Creator/CartoonNetwork and Creator/AdultSwim ditched much of their famed animated programming and attempted to put more emphasis on live action programming. They've since backed down from this and are showing cartoons again after the failure of CN Real, but they still heavily promote the few live-action shows they have.
