** Rebecca as well. At first seems to be a very respectable, and confident, business woman, who liked successful men like herself-finding Sam childish. Later when she first shows her vulnerable side with the situation with Drake, she starts to become more and more whiny about hating her life, and wanting to kill herself, acting bratty, as we hear in one episode her father still gives her an allowance, and a complete gold-digger with no self-esteem, and openly going after some guys just because they have money.

The show's writers have commented that this was quite deliberate, as it was funnier, and Christie Ally was so good a playing a neurotic wreck.

* Pretty much everybody and everything in ''Series/{{Newhart}}'' as the show progressed, but the series finale famously offered up a [[AllJustADream pretty brilliant explanation.]]

*** Alan's Flanderzation can especially be seen in the new seasons where Walden replaces Charlie. Formerly just broke, unlucky and socially inept, he becomes a shameless freeloader, incredibly cheap, more clumsy and unlucky than ever, dimwitted, and somewhat of a selfish jerk.

* Gordon Ramsey's persona has steadily become exaggerated, especially when making the jump from British to American television. While he was always prone to impassioned speeches--and to peppering those speeches with the occasional swear word--it eventually devolved into [[ChewingTheScenery flying off the handle]] at the slightest mistakes, and [[ClusterFBomb spewing profanity]] in all directions. Of course, sometimes it's edited to appear worse than it really is, and sometimes [[AdamWesting he plays it for laughs]].

* ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'''s Yuki was initially a bubbly, hyper, yet smart and thoughtful girl whose grades were almost as good as Kengo's and could impress Gamou with her knowledge of space. This is exaggerated through the series, most prominently in the second arc, until she becomes an increasingly loud, screechy, childish nuisance who literally believes in imaginary "rocket gods." She somewhat progressed to a more mature personality with the Gemini arc, in which [[spoiler:she became a Horoscope temporarily]] but the damage was done.

At peak Flanderization in the Aquarius two-parter, plenty of viewers had gotten so sick of Yuki that they wanted her kicked out of the Kamen Rider Club and replaced by the MonsterOfTheWeek, who likewise despises Yuki for treating space exploration like a joke. She somewhat progressed to gets a more mature personality with bit better in the Gemini arc, in which [[spoiler:she became a Horoscope temporarily]] two-parter, where [[spoiler:Yuki almost gets replaced by an EvilTwin, with even her own friends mistrusting her]], but for many fans the damage was had already been done.

*** Likewise, while Gentaro has a fair number of CatchPhrases[[note]]"UCHUU KITAAAA~!", "Kamen Rider Fourze! Let's do this man-to-man!" and "I'm the man who will befriend everyone, Gentaro Kisaragi!"[[/note]], he was still a well-rounded character. But any time Fourze re-appears in crossover movies and such (especially after Souta Fukushi moved on to other projects), his dialog is 99% those three Catch Phrases repeated endlessly ([[MadLibsCatchphrase or variations thereof]]), and Toei seemingly casts {{Fake Shemp}}s based off their ability to shout "KITAAAA~!" as loudly as possible rather than actually sounding like Fukushi.

** The process was eventually reversed with some of the above-mentioned characters: Hotchner became humane again and openly friendly and smiling during the arc showing him starting dating again following his wife's murder, and Rossi started filling the role of TeamDad when his character found out he was literally a father. Morgan, while still the team muscle, went with that and became a MemeticBadass.

* Chloe O'Brien on ''Series/TwentyFour'' underwent this during season 3. She changed from a quirky analyst in her first few appearances to a neurotic wreck (who also happened to be the only thing standing between CTU and complete system failure) by the end of the season. This characterization more or less continued through the next three seasons, and only reversed itself once Chloe assumed control of CTU New York in season 7.

** The change was somewhat less extreme than it was with her sisters, but Julie's defining characteristic - her high academic achievement - went from subtle to over-the-top as well. Early on, she was portrayed as very intelligent but also very much a teenager who still had a lot to learn and, on some level, knew it. (Quick: which of the three sisters do you think would be foolish enough to take up smoking, decades into the era when we knew it caused cancer? Now, guess which one actually did?) By season 4, nearly every line she had was devoted to either demonstrating how brilliant she was or putting someone else down for being less so.


Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of whom, in the first season, Potsie and Richie were the best buddies and Ralph was in their circle of friends but decidedly less close to them than they were to each other. Richie and Ralph more or less switched places afterward.

* The Canadian television series ''Series/KennyVsSpenny'' involves two roommates in a house competing against each other in a series of tests to find out who is better at certain things. In the first season, it was very tame (little to no profanity or crude references) and both hosts maintained a relatively civil (and even positive) friendship with each other, even when one or the other lost the competition. When the show moved to the Showcase Television network, both characters' personalities became exaggerated. Kenny went from "mildly entertained by rigging the contest, but still a good friend" to "unrepentant {{Jerkass}} who spends most of his time thinking up the next borderline-illegal {{plan}} he can use to win a competition". Spenny went from "amicable straight guy who won't stoop to his friend's level" to "meek nerd who pretends he's mature, but suffers from severe paranoia and whines about ''everything''."

*** Played straight then [[DefiedTrope defied]] with the Twelfth Doctor. His {{Jerkass}} tendencies grow over the course of the first several episodes or so of his first season, but he eventually received a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in "Kill the Moon", when he becomes too much of a jerkass. Then "Mummy on the Orient Express" happened, which showed off a softer side, and for the rest of the season his jerkass tendencies went lower and lower. Come Series 9, and he's basically a CoolOldGuy, if a bit on the [[DeadpanSnarker snarky side]].
