* In the UK ChannelFour and Five seem to air a ''100 Best Whatever'' show every few months, roping in lots of "celebs" to discuss their favourite whatevers.

** ChannelFour leapt on the chance to release a new-millennium edition about as soon as 2010 started. Appropriately enough given the decade's widespread pessimism and sense of anticlimax, it was called ''the noughties... was that it?'' (yes, inexplicable-but-fashionable [[AllLowercaseLetters lowercase]] included).

* The VH1 shows that focused on specific fads were [[SelfParody parodied]] by Gonzo at the end of ''I Love Franchise/TheMuppets'', when he announced that forthcoming programmes would include ''I Love [[Music/SpiceGirls Posh]] & [[TheBeautifulGame Becks]]'', ''I Love Posh But I'm Not So Keen on Becks'', ''I Love Becks But I Could Do Without Posh'' and ''I Love Gonzo The Great''.

** They also did ''I Love Toys''. Guess what it was about?
** ''I Love the Holidays'' (2005) was a 90-minute special that covered pop culture relating to Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year's. It only aired a few times compared to the endless repeats the decade-based shows received -- strange, considering how well it holds up in TheNewTens.

* The Statler Brothers, a longtime favorite country music quartet, had several of its most successful singles play on the nostalgia theme. A prime example is "Do You Remember These", a No. 2 country hit in 1972 that fondly looked back at the (then relatively recent) 1950s, while "Class of '57" (released later that year) was a sometimes bittersweet look at how high school classmates fared since graduation. "The Movies" was a roll call of top movies from the 1930s on through its 1977 release, while "Whatever Happened to Randolph Scott" was an homage to the silver screen cowboys of the 1930s and 1940s.
* ''Reminisce'' magazine, geared toward the plus-55 group, has numerous stories, photo essays and so forth focusing on the 1920s through 1960s. The magazine has been going strong since the mid-1990s.
** In addition, many of the numerous local "Plus 60"-type magazines and newspapers often have history columns, compiled from material provided by a local historical society or newspapers. Many newspapers from the smallest, cruftiest mom-and-pop to the nation's largest also have history columns, complied from various sources.

A show genre that is shamelessly and ''purely'' based around nostalgia. The format is simple, cheap, seldom varied, and generally goes like this:

'''Celebrity [[{{TalkingHeads}} Talking Head]]:''' ''Hey [[AnyoneRememberPogs remember [decade appropriate fad]?]] They were brilliant.''

(Stock footage of people participating in [fad])

'''Different Celebrity [[{{Music/TalkingHeads}} Talking Head]]:''' ''God, when I was a kid [fad] was everywhere. We had the biggest one on our road. And now no one remembers [fad]. They all have [modern fad]. [Modern fad] users just have no idea what they are missing!''

And so on, and so on. Replace 'fad' with 'toy', 'hairstyle' or 'type of music' as needed.

Can be based around a particular piece of media (music or television) or sport, but generalist shows are the most common. Some Z-list celebrities seem to exist solely to fill these shows. (Danny Bonaduce is almost always involved at some point- hey, it's better than having him drive a truck. Especially right behind you in traffic...).

* A nearly identical American version aired on [=VH1=], starting with 2002's ''I Love the '80s''. In total, [=VH1=]'s covered TheEighties three times, and TheSeventies, TheNineties, and the TurnOfTheMillennium twice each. Notably, the later installments for the Seventies and especially the Eighties poked holes in the NostalgiaFilter by discussing shows and fads that were DeaderThanDisco, SoBadItsGood and/or even completely terrible. (''Film/HowardTheDuck'', anyone?) There was also a goodly deal of SelfParody in later installments -- of both the growing number of shows and the regular panelists. (In a '90s-related discussion of The Club anti-car theft device, comic Hal Sparks claimed that VH-1 was using it on him in the downtime between shows.)

* The genre was parodied in Armando Iannucci's ''TimeTrumpet'', which purported to be a look back at the near future produced circa 2030, with actors playing older versions of current celebrities. It got fairly surreal.



** The same network also recently aired ''The 90s: The Last Great Decade?'', which was a 3 part miniseries that discussed the events and pop culture of TheNineties.
