* ''Series/CutthroatKitchen'' ''always'' does this in the first two rounds, just as the judge is about to announce who's being eliminated.

* ''Series/CutthroatKitchen'' ''always'' does this in the first two rounds, just as the judge is about to announce who's being eliminated. This trope is generally common in cook-off shows like ''Cutthroat Kitchen'', being used in similar shows such as ''Series/{{Chopped}}'' and ''Series/MasterChef''.

** ''Series/MinuteToWinIt'' in particular appears to be making a valiant attempt to top ''Greed'' and ''Series/DealOrNoDeal'' at this. At the end of one episode, the contestant had to make a stack of martini glasses and Christmas tree ornaments which would stay standing by itself for 3 seconds for a guaranteed $250,000. She finishes the tower and lets go, and three... two... one--TO BE CONTINUED. Though any GenreSavvy viewer who's watched the show before probably saw that one coming a mile away. Ten bucks says the outcome won't be shown until after at least one commercial break into the next episode.

** ''[[WWESmackdown Smackdown]]'' has recently averted this, with picture-in-picture of the match off to the side as the commercials play.

** In "Black-Eyed, Please", Homer tells Ned he'll only forgive him if he lets him have his wife. We get a commercial break, and afterwards Homer elaborates that he only wants her to help get rid of a substitute teacher that's been bullying Lisa.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' tried to inform us that there would be no commercial breaks, to better assist our viewing pleasure. These announcements were, of course, cut short at every opportunity. If I remember correctly, we would also appear to have missed something, as the situation would be slightly different than before the break.

* In the original broadcasts kf the WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat cartoons, each episode was split into two parts with a cliff hanger at mid point, and the narrator would say "What will happen to Felix in the next exciting adventure of Felix the Cat?" and in the next part, the theme song would play again before the second half (hence why each second half of an episode does a recap of the previous half). [[EditedForSyndication These parts were cut in the late 70's by tv stations trying to add more commercials.]] The DVD releases of the show use these syndicated edits.

* ''WesternAnimation/ToadPatrol'' Does this in every single episode. Most notable is at least two occasions where the cliffhanger in question was a literal one.
