* ''Literature/{{Matilda}}'': Matilda's parents are addicted to television, which is shown as one of their many character flaws. When Miss Honey goes to visit them at home, there's an American soap opera on, and Mrs. Wormwood in particular objects to being interrupted when "Willard is just about to propose to Roxanne."

In Britain, watching soaps is more acceptable, and since the better-quality soaps tend to be broadcast during UsefulNotes/{{primetime}}, daytime drama queens just don't show up so often on the European side of ThePond. On the other hand, they've now got an entire television channel (called "Dave") that fills nearly the same role, a fact regularly mocked on ''TopGear'' and the various BBC PanelShows it repeats ''ad nauseam''. A closer British equivalent is to mock a character for watching daytime talk shows, such as Tricia or Jeremy Kyle, or daytime quiz shows like ''Series/{{Countdown}}''.
