* The NBC talk show ''Later'' had a long string of guest hosts after the departure of Greg Kinnear in 1996; ''Friday Night'' host Rita Sever was the most prominent mainly because she was already there. Cynthia Garrett became permanent host on January 31, 2000, but NBC did little to promote the show and it ended in January 2001. For a year it became ''Later Presents {{SCTV}}'', a slot for reruns of the 1980s sketch comedy show, before ''Last Call with Carson Daly'' replaced it.

* Sister show ''Radio/AmericanCountryCountdown'' often did the same under the hosting of Bob Kingsley (who held the role from 1978-2005). When Kingsley left to start his own show, ''Radio/BobKingsleysCountryTop40'', there was a three-week rotation of guest hosts on ''ACC'' before [[Music/BrooksAndDunn Kix Brooks]] took over.
* Over at ''Country Top 40'', Bob occasionally handed the mic over to a singer. Jeffrey Steele did a week each in 2008 and '09, and Jack Ingram did another week in 2008. A Connecticut DJ named Lance Tidwell filled in for Bob in late 2012.
* With his increasing age and a serious bout of pneumonia late in his career, Radio/PaulHarvey sometimes handed the mic over to someone else when he was unable to do the show. The most frequent guest host was his son, Paul Harvey Jr., but several other ABC radio personnel sometimes filled in, as did former senator Fred Thompson. Two of the regular substitutes, Gil Gross and Doug Limerick, took over on the show's format following Harvey's death, but it was canceled only two weeks later and replaced with ''The Huckabee Report''.

** For AprilFoolsDay 2014, Drew Carey (who succeeded Barker as host) did a flip-flop with Craig Ferguson. Drew hosted ''The Late Late Show'' with George Gray as announcer and the models as sidekicks, while Craig Ferguson hosted ''Price'' with Shadoe Stevens announcing, and Secratariat and Geoff Peterson as "models".

Added DiffLines:

* The 1990-91 incarnation of ''Series/ToTellTheTruth'' had this happen unintentionally. The {{pilot}} episode, hosted by Richard Kline, aired on the East Coast by mistake instead of the actual first episode. Original host Gordon Elliott was fired early on over a salary dispute, so Lynn Swann took his place. Then Swann had to leave, so Creator/AlexTrebek took over... however, ''he'' had to leave in the middle of a taping session due to his wife going into labor, so creator Creator/MarkGoodson was called in at the last minute to host a couple episodes until Trebek could return.

** ''Wheel'' also had a guest ''director'' for some weeks in Season 31. Longtime director Mark Corwin died after directing only two weeks of episodes, so ''Jeopardy!'' director Kevin [=McCarthy=] handled that season's road shows taped in Las Vegas, while associate director Bob Cisneros and technical director Robert Ennis filled in until the former was promoted to full-time director. Ennis also filled in again briefly in 2014 while Cisneros was having neck surgery, and ultimately became promoted himself later in 2015.
