* An episode of ''ThatsSoRaven'' puts an interesting spin on this trope. Corey's band holds auditions for a singer, and a HollywoodToneDeaf girl shows up. Corey falls in LoveAtFirstSight and as a result is unable to hear how bad she sounds so he chooses her. His other bandmates had to record her singing and play it back for him to get him to realize what she really sounded like.

* One episode of ''TwoAndAHalfMen'' has basically the exact same plot as the example in the description. Charlie pretends that an old flame can sing because he's kinda hoping to sleep with her but keeps kidding himself that he's just being friendly.

[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* In ''[[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'', Ukyou finally unseals the Special Sauce she made ten years ago and has been aging since... and is promptly knocked unconscious by it. She doesn't know (but Ranma does, and remembers) that Ranma accidentally spilled it just after she first made it, and replaced it with a foul concoction of everything he could find at the time. Instead of telling the truth, he keeps eating whatever she slathers the "sauce" with, refuses to acknowledge it's bad, and claims to Akane that there's nothing wrong. Then Ukyou thinks that he's saying this because, back then, he promised to take care of her for the rest of her life if it tasted good, so this must mean he loves her!

[[AC:{{Live-Action TV}}]]
* ''TheJeffersons'': Everyone except Florence told Louise they like her paintings even though they were awful. She got a show, and then George finally confessed that they were just encouraging her. She didn't believe it and sold a painting for $500, proving them wrong - until the purchaser revealed he only wanted it for the frame and threw the painting in the trash.

* ''TheAndyGriffithShow'': The good folks of Mayberry try to get town drunk Otis to stop drinking by giving him a hobby: painting. Everyone praises Otis' work despite its lack of quality for fear that he'll be back to the bottle. The painting makes it all the way to the auction block before Otis realizes everyone hates it. Not discouraged, he paints a second picture, and it's a masterpiece, because he did it while drunk.
** A similar plot happened when Aunt Bee made pickles that qualified for the county fair.

* ''{{Chowder}}'''s first episode involved the titular character being asked to cook food on his own. Unfortunately, he's distracted at a critical moment and adds poison instead of the proper ingredient. His mentor, Mung Daal, can't bring himself to tell Chowder he made a mistake, so he has to try and buy-or steal-all of the food from the stand Chowder sets up.

* An episode of ''Series/HermansHead'' heads this way before twisting at the end. Louise (Yeardley Smith, best known as Lisa Simpson) plans to sing at a club, much to the dismay of her co-workers who hear her shrill, nasal voice every day, but none of them can bring themselves to say anything. Finally they race the club to try to stop her, but are too late. As anyone who owned "The Simpsons Sing the Blues" at the time saw coming, they arrived in mid song to find that she could really, really sing.

* ''KamenRiderDouble'' has a variant with a plot based around a Dopant that causes people to unquestioningly believe specific lies that makes the judges on a TalentShow believe the lie "Jimmy's music is good". Jimmy's success on the show, combined with praise from his girlfriend (who was lying to him to make him like her), makes him delusional about what people think of his music when everyone actually hates it with a violent passion.

* Exactly the same thing happened to Lily in ''HowIMetYourMother''. Except in her case a Veterinarian then found the painting in the trash and hung it up in one of his exam rooms, later discovering that the painting somehow has a calming effect on dogs, which leads Lily to start marketing her paintings to Veterinarians. Tragically, Lily's paintings cause birds to kill themselves.
