When on a comedy the characters make jokes at the expense of the studio or network funding their movie or TV show. In the U.S., the favorite target out of the Big Four Networks seems to be FOX, although all networks are AcceptableTargets at some point or another (Creator/{{NBC}} has seemed to ''encourage'' it since about 2006, right around when it became the ButtMonkey of the four major networks).

* WebVideo/EmmaBlackery:
** For a long time, Emma Blackery's most viewed video was her singing about how no one liked [=YouTube's=] integration with Google Plus.
--> '''Emma''': Basically, I have this kinda feeling that [=YouTube=] isn't gonna like this video too much.
** Like many [=YouTubers=], Emma made a video mocking the idea of "[=YouTube=] Heroes", comparing it to Communism.
* When [=YouTube=] Heroes was announced, ''LetsPlay/PewDiePie'' made a satire video of himself abusing the power that would be given to [=YouTube=] Heroes.

* On ''MatchGame PM'', Gene Rayburn would note that all players would receive a home version of ''Match Game.'' Richard Dawson would quip "The loser gets ''two'' of them!"
* A Bill Cullen episode of ''ThePriceIsRight'' had all contestants overbidding on an item, the result of which nobody would win it. Bill noted that a bonus was involved with a check for $1000. To make it official, Bill tore the signature off the check, after which he'd snark "I've always wanted to tear up Goodson and Todman!"

** Also numerous highly-unflattering depictions of newspaper operators. The editor of the ''Bloom Picayune'' was offended that Milo would even consider bumping his [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver Jack Kemp adultery rumor story to page two]] in order to cover an oncoming AlienInvasion.

* Gary Trudeau, creator of ''ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}}'', has slapped at his employer several times for making him submit strips six weeks in advance, with characters saying things along the lines of "even though the election happened last week, we don't know who won because this strip was submitted six weeks ago."

** One arc had Milo having nightmares about being a syndicated cartoonist, where he was forced to draw cartoons in a dungeon where a sadistic editor-slash-torturer whipped and racked him for grammar mistakes and drawing cartoons that weren't funny. (As a MythologyGag, [[ComicStrip/{{Doonsbury}} Gary Trudeau]] - whose strip was on hiatus - was in the dungeon as well.)

* The failures of Neocities, Blog/{{Froghand}}'s host site, often [[https://froghand.neocities.org/buafy/2016-10.html#19 comes up]] in the [[https://froghand.neocities.org/buafy.html BUAFYs]].
--> Fuck you to Neocities, and though for all the time I say "fuck you" to it, they still keep me on here despite commiting multiple acts of sedition (everybody download the site while it's still up!). I assume it's for the fat advertising money they're making from the invisible ads they put exclusively for mimes, or to entice the hundreds of thousands of hamsters they use to run the server with.
