*** Due to Blizzard Entertainment's ''VideoGame/{Overwatch}'' being the new and popular kid on the block, Valve has decided to give ''[=TF2=]'' a little more attention. "A little" being the key phrase here, as the minuscule team released "Competitive Mode" in an [[ObviousBeta unfinished state]] and promised a class update to who ever won a popularity contest between The Heavy Weapons Guy and The Pyro (the latter being the winner by a slim margin), the first since "Pyromania". Time will tell if the new class update will breathe new life in a 9-year-old game or if it will do the same as the rest of the updates have been doing (adding in useless hats, shuffling stats on weapons, and attempting to fix a few major problems).

* Creator/ValveSoftware's obsession with continually updating ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' and expanding the ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' franchise has been viewed as taking precedence over making new games, ''VideoGame/HalfLife2: Episode 3'' in particular, even though separate groups work on each series of games.

* Atlus and ''VideoGame/{{Megaten}}'', but especially ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. Persona 4 was a BreakthroughHit (so much that Atlus USA ''dropped'' the Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei brand from "Arena" and "Golden"!) Atlus has given much more love to Personas 3 and 4 than they have the first two, which only got PSP remakes (the last of which [[NoExportForYou never left Japan]]) and didn't share even ''half'' the popularity of 3 and 4.

* ABC and ABC Family (now Creator/{{Freeform}}) milked ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' marathons even more frequently than Spike did with ''Star Wars''. In almost every season of the year, there is a ''Harry Potter'' marathon on ABC Family. They would often take it to the max whenever another ''Harry Potter'' film was being released to theaters. Unfortunately for Disney, Creator/WarnerBrothers will eventually put a stop to that when, effective 2018, the broadcast rights go to [=NBCUniversal=], and unlike their original deal with Disney, WB has given USA Network and Syfy (and potentially NBC as well)) exclusive broadcast rights to special DirectorsCut editions of the first two movies.

* Creator/{{Spike|TV}} seems to have a ''Franchise/StarWars'' marathon, showing all six films, roughly every third weekend. In later years, it was during holidays (such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter etc.), or to promote some new ''Star Wars''-related producted (such as ''The Old Republic''). Recently, though, Spike has ceased airing ''Star Wars'' marathons, probably due to Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm. It's likely Disney rescinded their broadcast rights, and plans to air the movies on one of their own networks (such as ABC, ABC Family, or Disney Channel). As of September 2016, the films are now airing on TNT and TBS as part of a major deal between Turner and Disney (a separate deal for ''Film/ANewHope'' had to be inked with 20th Century Fox due to the Copyright Act of 1976).

* Creator/{{BET}} used to air ''Film/LoveAndBasketball'' frequently and with very little provocation, and seemed obliged to do so every Valentine's Day. However, after Monica Wright and Kevin Durant split, the novelty cooled off, and demand for the movie's broadcast followed suit.
