--> Mike: That I did not expect.
* The short-lived UPN show, ''The Watcher'' (an anthology show hosted by Sir Mix-A-Lot) had an episode with a band called Pandemonium (played by the members of Cheap Trick) doing a run of shows in Las Vegas. The singer complained that the other band members had gone soft, unable to party down like they used to, and vowed to replace them all with other musicians. To show they could still "live it up", the other band members threw a TV out the window - only for it to land on the singer!

* The opening credits for ''{{SCTV}}'' include a montage of people defenestrating their [=TVs=] in rage because the station is on the air. Buildings the [=TVs=] were thrown out of include high-rises, suburban tract houses, mansions, and a grass hut (probably referencing the African nation of Togo, a running joke on the show).
