* Whichever network(s) currently holds rerun rights to Film/JamesBond films goes crazy running them as often as possible before the tide changes. In TheNineties, TBS and TNT cornered the market on marathon runs of Bond movies (to the point that there was a joke about it in ''Film/AmericanBeauty''), followed by AMC for a little while at the TurnOfTheMillennium. After that, the status of "James Bond Network" rotated between Creator/{{Spike|TV}}, the Encore movie networks (at least ''three times'', the main channel showed a different one every night in prime time for a month, while sister channels Action, Suspense, etc. got in on the fun by sprinkling the films throughout their schedules), and G4. As of 2016, they're being batted between MGM HD and BBC America. Note that this package generally covers the first '''20''' films plus the unofficial entry ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain'', so even if networks have to split them up, they aren't just rerunning 3-4 films over and over.

** Speaking of Pixar, they gave this treatment to ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' as of it's premiere on February 26, 2015. They aired it every single day for two weeks in a row, something which has not happened for any new Disney or Pixar movie that premiered on there. [[note]]For example, the aforementioned Toy Story 3 seemed to air twice every four or five days, and ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' played once a week during its' premiere[[/note]]. Like the Lion King example on the Disney page, they often aired the movie twice in a row, which happened the day it premiered. Nowadays, [[TooSoon after one of these screenings played at the same time as the Brussels attacks]], the movie's airings were cut down. Now it only airs once every two days, and only during the early morning or prime time.

** Nintendo's \'second party\' developers aren't immune to this either - IntelligentSystems seems to absolutely adore FireEmblem, much to the chagrin of those waiting for an AdvanceWars sequel.

* For a while, it seemed as if E!'s only defense against a day of dead air is rerunning ''Film/HesJustNotThatIntoYou'' sandwiched between multiple rerun blocks of Kardashian shows and ''[[Series/{{SexandtheCity}} Sex and the City]]''.
* Creator/VH1 showed ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' and ''Film/{{Ghostbusters II}}'' on a frequent basis for years after they started broadcasting more programs that were not dedicated to music. They usually showed the movies in cropped formats, meaning their pictures were not shown in their entirety (the second movie was usually shown in the 16:9 aspect ratio unlike the first movie, which was usually shown in the 4:3 aspect ratio, even after [=VH1=] started showing the second movie on a frequent basis).

* Australian TV network "ten" developed a great fondness for ''[[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay Terminator 2]]''. Before that, it was ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', and it used to play ''Film/TheDevilWearsPrada'' once a month at least.

** Understandably, ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' is a CashCowFranchise for Square Enix, and justly widely enjoyed. However, true to this effect, it has a habit of overshadowing other efforts that the company occasionally puts forth. The game ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' was hit particularly hard by this, when its budget and production schedule slashed in favor of the soon-to-be-released ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', resulting in a sharp decrease in quality and quantity of gameplay in the second half of the game.

* Due to the MLB post-season, there was a stretch of time starting around the turn of the century when Fox delayed the season premiere of many of its shows until after the World Series to accommodate its coverage. This meant fans of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''Series/TheXFiles'' had to wait until ''November'' to see new episodes. Starting in 2005, Fox returned to launching major shows in September -- but the Series still kept the ''Simpsons''' annual [[WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror Halloween Episode]] from airing until after the holiday came and went. However, thanks to the growing shift of sports to cable, Fox lost much of its post-season coverage: as of 2014, Fox now only airs the World Series, as the Division Series and League Championship Series are split between Fox Sports 1 and Creator/{{TBS}}. TBS held exclusive rights to the Division Series and one Championship Series (the other aired on Fox) from 2006 to 2014.
