* 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.

* Fox constantly shows ''Film/IndependenceDay'' whenever a big event is happening on another network: Super Bowl, Oscars, etc... In fact, ''Independence Day'' airs often on ''every'' station that gets the rights to it. Even MTV, A&E, CMT, BET, Syfy, E!, AMC, Spike, Bravo, and [=VH1=] have been in on the act. There was one time, around 2009-ish, when it popped up every other weekend. Creator/{{TBS}}, Creator/{{TNT}} and Creator/WGNAmerica played it constantly, so did Creator/MyNetworkTV as a Sunday night movie and Saturday afternoon and The CW.

* Creator/NickAtNite: Their “Thursday Night Movie” block as of March 2016 seems to adore as many "not quite hit, not quite BoxOfficeBomb" movies as possible, from ''[[Film/{{Garfield}} Garfield: A Tail Of Two Kitties]]'' to ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' and [[Film/ScoobyDooMonstersUnleashed its sequel]]. It’s gotten to the point where DirectToVideo productions such as ''Film/OpenSeason 3'' (!) have aired.

*** By contrast, the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships (their professional tournament) is not as important in North America as it is elsewhere because it [[DuelingShows falls during the Stanley Cup Playoffs]]--meaning the Canadian and American teams consist mainly of NHL players from teams who didn't make it far in the playoffs, or not at all. This worked to Canada's advantage in 2015, as Pittsburgh's round 1 loss allows the team to have access to star player Sidney Crosby. They [[CurbStompBattle promptly crushed every opponent they met]], including Russia in the final: critics were quick to point out that Canada's dream team would be impossible to form in the NHL because it was ''way'' over the salary cap.
