* The former TropeNamer would be the Creator/AgathaChristie novel ''MurderOnTheOrientExpress'', where [[EveryoneIsASuspect everyone was suspected]], and for good reason. [[ItWasHisSled Not really a spoiler any more.]] Also the TropeMaker and UrExample.

* ''Series/ThirtyRock'' episode "It's Never Too Late For Now" is a WholePlotReference to ''MurderOnTheOrientExpress'' - Liz is even watching the 1974 film. The "crime" is that there was a conspiracy to get her laid with a Canadian gigolo. Like Poirot, she rejects the complex (though true) answer that all of her co-workers felt bad for her and got her laid, but the simple explanation that she met a guy, and had fun night.

* {{Broadchurch}}: This is apparently what happened with the Sandbrook case. [[spoiler: Lee had sex with Lisa, got caught by Ricky, Lisa mouthed off to Ricky, Ricky accidentally killed Lisa, Pippa overheard everything and thought Lee did the killing, Ricky had Claire drug Pippa while they cleaned up the crime scene, Lee smothered Pippa to keep her quiet but told Ricky she died due to him drugging her, and the three of them agreed to keep each other's secrets.]]

* Comically subverted in the British spoof anthology series ''Series/MurderMostHorrid'' starring DawnFrench: in the episode "The Case of the Missing", everyone ''did'' do it, but the detective assigned to the case (French) is so confused and frustrated by their manipulation of the evidence that she finally snaps and concludes that she must have done it.

* The episode of ''Series/{{Monk}}'' where he went to a vineyard. He meets a guy, but the next day, everybody denies that he existed. [[spoiler:The guy stole money from his employers and died of a heart attack. The other guests find out and agree to split the money, but hid the truth from Monk because he's honest, so they erase all traces of the man's existence]].

* One tongue-in-cheek episode of ''Series/{{CSI}}'' concerned a man found dead in a swimming pool. Every time Doc Robbins finds a possible cause of death, it looks like a new suspect is to blame for his injuries, whether for intentional homicide or reckless endangerment. Eventually it turns out that the repeatedly-battered man sat down to recuperate, slipped into the pool when his deck chair collapsed, [[SubvertedTrope and accidentally drowned]], meaning Everybody ''Failed'' To Do It.

* PlayedForLaughs in the climax of ''Film/ThePinkPanther'' movie ''Film/AShotInTheDark''. Clouseau's interrogation goes completely out of control as the different suspects start bickering amongst each other and shouting accusations; from this, he is somehow able to deduce that "they were all murderers, except for Maurice, who was a blackmailer!"

* PlayedForLaughs in the AllJustADream ''{{Daria}}'' episode "Murder, She Snored", in which Kevin is murdered and Daria is the main suspect. As it turned out, everybody ''but'' her did it, all unaware of each other's plots and thinking they were the sole murderers. Even though they all fess up when Daria starts pointing fingers, [[CrapsackWorld Daria gets convicted anyway.]]
