* In the Season 5 ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' episode "Dance, Diane, Dance", TheTeaser finds the Cheers crowd watching a football game when the picture quality suddenly drops. Sam sends Woody over to the set to adjust the antenna, which involves balancing on the panelling while hanging onto the set; inevitably, he loses his footing, but as he hangs from the set, several feet off the floor, the picture clears up - almost. Cliff makes a minor colour adjustment by picking up one of Woody's legs to balance his foot on top of the panelling.
-->'''Woody:''' Wow, I sure hope this game doesn't go into overtime!
* TheStinger of the ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' Season 3 opener "She's the Boss" sees Martin struggling to get a coherent picture on the television. Daphne solves the problem by picking up Eddie, who is wearing a protective plastic collar to stop him from scratching the cuts he picked up in a fight with another dog, and putting him on top of the set.
