* ''GoodLuckCharlie'': The chalkboard on the fridge has a section for chores, as well as sections for each Duncan, even Charlie. If it's visible, expect it to at least vaguely be in the episode and most of the time a huge part of the episode.

* ''TrailerParkBoys'': In one episode, a character reads a written note aloud as the camera focuses on it. After he is done, the camera pans down slightly for a split second to reveal [[UnreadablyFastText extra text]], which says "If you're freeze-framing this on DVD, you're fucked!"

* ''Series/ModernFamily'': In ''Connection Lost,'' in TheStinger Clair quickly scans over the first sentence of Alex's college admissions essay before giving up and just texting her that she loved it. If you pause long enough to read the actual essay visible on the screen, one sentence has "I know you're not reading this, mom" inserted in it.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', in the episode "The Well," the online message board of a neo-paganist hate group is shown for about a second. If you pause it and read the messages, you'll notice that one is amusingly off-topic.
* ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'': Abuses this trope and it's one of the main reasons that makes it BetterOnDVD.

** In the cold open of the episode [[Recap/CommunityS2E04BasicRocketScience Basic Rocket Science]], it's visible that the Dean's desktop wallpaper is of two people in dalmatian costumes, a CallBack to the [[Recap/CommunityS1E25PascalsTriangleRevisited season 1 finale]].

* {{ER}} The names of patients on the wall behind the nurses' station were actually that of various crew members and occasionally the real life names of the cast. Then, in the final season, as several doctors prepared to leave, they were taken down to basement to put their name plates on the wall. On closer look, indeed, the names of ''every'' doctor/nurse who had left the staff/cast by whatever means was present (making this a nice ContinuityNod as well)).
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' and, strangely enough, ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' both have FreezeFrameBonus {{Shout Out}}s to this show, as seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQMHQjaxfpE here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qUe-1nESOg here]], respectively.

* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': The first half of S1 was ''very'' good at this, with tons of stuff in each episode. For instance, Suresh's map with color strings. There was bits of {{Foreshadowing}} regarding upcoming characters as early as the first episode. [[spoiler: The folders in Old Suresh's file cabinet are labelled with the names of powers featured in later episodes.]] During the second half there was considerably less of this and in later seasons these little clues appear to be largely absent.
* ''Series/HomeImprovement'': In later episodes, the intro had "Watch Tool Time" flash quickly several times when the cast members were shown on screen. A screenshot of this can be found [[http://www.eeggs.com/items/17809.html here.]]

* ''Series/{{Lost}}'':
** Has this in spades. Appearances by Jacob, the beechcraft in the corner of Charlie's dream, changing picture frames, briefly seen documents in the hatches....
** Most notably, the Blast Door Map which, while only visible for several seconds, contains numerous references to future plot points, such as The Flame, Magnus Hanso as the captain of the Black Rock, the date of the Incident etc.

* ''Series/{{Newswipe}}'': In CharlieBrooker's show, there's a bit where a list of the G20 bodies scroll across the screen, too fast to read. Slowing it down reveals that it says "..SPAIN THE NETHERLANDS THE NEW PARTNERSHIP FOR AFRICA'S DEVELOPMENT BOTTOM LAND NO NOT REALLY WE MADE THAT ONE UP AND YOU BOTHERED TO PAUSE THIS TO READ THE PHRASE "BOTTOM LAND" WHAT A DISMAL LITTLE PRICK YOU ARE THE ASSOCIATION OF SOUTH EAST ASIAN NATIONS THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION..."

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest'': The various uses of [[BigBrotherIsWatching Machine POV]] can lead to this in episodes, particularly by use of its ColorCodedForYourConvenience method of identifying individuals. Of note are the split second in Control's debut episode where she has a red "threat" box, and the season one finale where the VictimOfTheWeek has the yellow box indicating that she knows about the machine [[spoiler: because she's really [[BigBad Root]]]].

* TouchedByAnAngel: At the conclusion of an episode in which the angels were trying to aid a detective who specialized in missing children's cases, one of the cast members revealed that the numerous "Missing" posters seen in the background throughout the episode were in fact those of ''real'' missing children. Pausing the footage allowed the viewer to get a much closer looks at the details present.

* ''{{Victorious}}'': The dry-erase boards.
* Intentionally invoked on Letterman. During a viewer mail segment, Dave read a letter from a guy who said he recorded the show and watched it later. Often, there would be a quick shot of the cue-card boy, and the viewer would pause the tape, and read the joke before Dave told it. When Dave finished reading the letter, there was a quick shot of the cue-card boy holding a nasty note for the guy that wrote the letter. For the lulz.

She wrote checks for "Organization for the fight to end Women's Suffrage", "Society for Teaching English to Americans", and "P.A.N.I.C. (People Against Namining Infants Chad)".
