* Part of the main premise of WebVideo/{{Phelous}}'s series ''Halloweenie'', in which the titular skeletal host is constantly being forced to stop threatening or intimidating viewers, [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing referencing or encouraging illegal activities]] (such as "creating your own" blood-stained sheet), [[HappinessIsMandatory being negative about the products he is describing]], spouting vulgarity, and [[BitingTheHandHumor criticizing executive decisions]]. Additionally, he is forced to take on co-hosts and is frequently "Cancelled Forever" and replaced by TastesLikeDiabetes replacements. The meddling usually come in the form of rapid cuts cutting off the "bad take" mid-sentence, such as:

** Mike seems to be behind a bunch of questionable decisions on Channel Awesome's part. He was responsible for the ill-fated ''WebVideo/PopQuizHotshot'' (sample meddling: telling Jim Jarosz to "just build a game show set" with little guidance and no concept) and misunderstandings with him led to the departure of many Channel Awesome contributors, either through firing or quitting. [[note]] Of course, this isn't true for ''all'' of the departed contributors. To this troper's knowledge, neither [[Website/ChezApocalypse Lindsay Ellis]] or [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Kyle Kallgren]] had any personal issues with the site. [[/note]]

* Comic Book Resources got taken over by new owners [[http://www.comicsbeat.com/tilting-at-windmills-252-this-retailer-wrote-252-columns-and-what-he-found-out-might-shock-you/ who immediately axed all of the columns]] that were the site's unique selling point. Cue cries of TheyChangedItNowItSucks!

* Of course, [[TropesAreNotBad tropes are not always bad]]: while ''Series/SesameStreet'' has gotten flak in the past for the bigger changes they made to the show, such as the brief addition of the Around the Corner set in the mid-90s and the current time/format changes on HBO, most changes are made to take into account the show's audience and how they would best respond to characters, stories, and segments (while still staying true to the ''Sesame'' spirit). The whole point of ''Elmo's World'', dreaded though it may be, was to give the show's younger viewers a chance to see their favorite character alongside (relatively - it's still a kid's show) LighterAndSofter visuals and music. The negative side is, unfortunately, played straight when people like head writer/puppeteer Joey Mazzarino left after feeling discouraged with the show's new direction.

** Possibly from trying to avoid this from American distributors, the main characters were given primarily American ethnicity so that the series could appeal to transatlantic audiences. However, whether they had to make the change is debatable, as U.S. distributors are known for re-dubbing voice acting to American accents and speech, even if it is already in English.

* According to Doug at a con, Mike Michaud made him and Cinema Snob do a WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic video on ''Film/{{Sharknado}}'' because it would get good hits.
