* A non-sexual example can be found in the title of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "ToServeMan" (based on a short story by Damon Night). The title can mean either "to perform a service for humanity" or "to serve the meat of a human as food." Given the show, guess which one they're talking about here.

* Almost every television series starring Creator/RikMayall (''TheYoungOnes'') featured a number of double entendres every episode; in fact, the original intent of calling one series ''{{Bottom}}'' was to force double entendre on the viewers: "I saw that 'Bottom' on telly the other night -- no, wait, that's not what I meant." The original title of the show, "Your Bottom", made the double entendre even worse: "I saw Your Bottom on TV yesterday."

* In one ''BeakmansWorld'' segment explaining rotational inertia, Beakman breaks out the Beakman Rotational Aerodynamic Thingies. Commence thingy-twirling jokes, and compound that with the fact that the girl wins...

* ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'': In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4pR6MsLfuM#t=18m12s this scene]] from "The Trophy", episode one of [[WalkingSwimsuitScene the girls on the beach]] tells Eddie Kramer "I [[SexGod go far]] when I go out." it's then [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre lampshaded]] by one of the other girls when she says "Yeah! [[ReallyGetsAround All the way!]]".

* In the second part of the pilot for ''Legends of Tomorrow'', Martin Stein, Jefferson Jackson, and Sara Lance, having traveled back in time to the seventies, visit Martin's younger self to get his help tracking alpha particles. They introduce themselves to young-Stein as a physicist and his two lab assistants. Young Stein asks them if they are more interested in theoretical or applied physics. Sara, in a deliberately over-the-top sexy voice, says "I just can't decide. I love them both." One gets the impression that [[BiTheWay she was not talking about physics]].

** Surprisingly, ''Series/TheNewStatesman'', for a Mayall series, is relatively free of double entendres, except for the lead character's name, Alan B'Stard. Maybe the rule regarding Mayall should be that he double-entendres himself to death in any role written by either himself or Ben Elton. His double-entendres as the various Lord Flashhearts on ''BlackAdder'' are barely single entendres, and are the exemplars of this trope. 'Send a car. General Melchett's driver should do. She's used to hanging around with the big nobs so will be fine with a chap like me. Woof!'
