* ''Series/FreshOffTheBoat'' is this indirectly. In its use on the show, as a common[[note]]And often disparaging[[/note]] term in the Chinese-American community for newly arrived immigrants, it makes sense. However, its real-life usage is artifactual, as it's been a long time since new immigrants from Asia came by boat.

* ''Paris by Night''--a long-running series of Vietnamese-language variety show productions--was originally filmed in Paris; it made sense, as France has a sizable population of Vietnamese expats (because it spends much of its time taking [[TakeThat pot shots]] at the government, ''Paris by Night'' is [[BannedInChina banned in Vietnam itself]] and is mainly aimed at disapora), and it was effectively a French caberet. However, it's also been produced in other countries, particularly Canada and the United States. Even worse is the fact that it has not been produced in Paris since 2003.

** The U.S. version of ''Match of the Day'' on NBCSN goes even further into the ArtifactTitle rabbit hole, since the program was adapted from the BBC version after the BBC version began showing portions of every match. ''Match of the Day II'' is ''Match of the Day,'' but for Sundays, and sometimes includes bits of Saturday (or even Friday) matches too. Weekday games, however, have yet to result in incrementing the roman numeral further. And, just to bring things full circle, NBCSN's ''Match of the Week'' shows a single match.

* The classic ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' comic story "Comicbook/ForTheManWhoHasEverything" is set on Superman's birthday, with the [[LotusEaterMachine Black Mercy]] as an ironic "present" from one of his villains. The title is obviously a reference to the phrase "What do you get for the man who has everything?" about gift-giving. The ''Series/{{Supergirl}}'' adaptation is called "For the Girl Who Has Everything", but it's not Kara's birthday and the Black Mercy is not shown as being a gift, even ironically.

* ''Later... with Jools Holland'', the popular Creator/{{BBC}}2 music programme, was so named because it was originally given a slot following ''The Late Show'', an arts magazine programme. ''Later...'' has an irregular schedule, but is still going strong. ''The Late Show'' stopped broadcasting in 1995.

** Another example comes from one of ESPN2's talk shows ''Series/NumbersNeverLie''; originally debuting as a panel show with an emphasis on stats and analytics, ESPN then felt that the subject matter was too advanced for most viewers, so it got dumbed down into a vaguely number-themed panel show. Even host Michael Smith thinks the title doesn't really fit anymore (in November 2014, the show will be re-branded as a tie-in to Smith and co-host Jalen Rose's podcast ''His & Hers'')

* On ''HappyDays'', there was no Arnold at "Arnold's Drive-In" for the majority of the series' run; it was owned by Al Delvecchio. Previously, it was owned by a man named Matsuo Takahashi, who was ''nicknamed'' Arnold because he had purchased Arnold's Drive-In from a man who ''was'' named Arnold. Lampshaded on one episode in which the gang learn that Arnold was not his name and Arnold points out how expensive the sign change would be letter by letter.

* Recent seasons of the ''IceRoadTruckers'' franchise have been set in mountainous tropical regions overseas. Current programs use the "IRT" abbreviation to downplay the fact that the trucks haven't been driving on ice for some time.

* 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.
