* ''Film/{{Dredd}}'', despite being a non-stop action film, is actually like this. The creators chose to make it a "day in the life of Judge Dredd" type story as opposed to trying to adapt one or more of the big storylines of the comic where the entire city is in peril. This is most emphasized at the end after Dredd has killed hundreds of mooks, nearly died himself, and dismantled an entire drug network, he casually notes it down as a "drug bust".

* The ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS06E04WeekendAtBobbys "Weekend at Bobby's" (S06, E04)]] revolves around Bobby's general routine [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin over a couple of days]]. Given the general weirdness of happenings on the show and Bobby's prominent role in the hunter community, this involves [[ImpersonatingAnOfficer answering phones and pretending to be various government officers]], [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique hiding bodies from the police]], [[ChunkySalsaRule shoving an okami into a woodchipper]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking doling out well-researched advice to hunters in the field]]. Bobby's overarching goal of getting his soul back from [[DealWithTheDevil Crowley]] is practically a side-plot.

**The episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS11E04Baby Baby]] showed the minutia of the brothers working a case. Instead of cutting away as they get in the car and then cut back to them arriving, the episode followed them on the drive, showing their random conversations, singing along with the radio, eating as they drive. Instead of cutting away when they're ready to sleep, it showed them settling down in the car and the things they talk about as they drift off. The episode is a fan favorite because it focused on what the brothers do when they're not [[BadassNormal saving the world.]]

* Episode 10 of ''LightNovel/{{Akikan}}!'' showed a day in the life of the three Akikan girls at home. Melon tried to deal with the heat, Yell cleaned up the apartment and Budoko played make-believe. No wacky harem antics, no school scenes, final destination.

* ''Series/{{House}}'' episode 6x14 "5 to 9" follows a day in the life of Lisa Cuddy. Arguably, 6x10 "Wilson" does so for Wilson as well.

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'''s parking lot episode is probably the best example of taking observational humor into a dramatic format. ''{{Seinfeld}}'' specialized in taking the logic of a Day In The Life episode to its logical extreme.
