* One episode of ThirtyRock deals with Jack having to abandon his large secret cookie jar collecton "because the guy with the weird hobby never gets the corner office". (it is explained that Giuliani only became mayor of NY after ditching his doll collection). He does insist you don't have to be weird to have a collection like that though:

* The massive collections of sci-fi/fantasy and comic-book tie-ins accumulated by the core cast of ''TheBigBangTheory'' would probably be a male equivalent. It is interesting that when Penny calls Leonard out on his, and he seeks to sell it all off to please her, Sheldon hits back by referring to Penny's own compulsive accumulation of Care Bears, My Little Ponies, et c. The capping instance must be Doctor Lorvis,[[note]] A dermatologist with a lot in common with howard - single and living with his mother[[/note]] who compensates for being single and living with his mother by spending a private practice salary on ''really-high-end'' movie and television tie-ins, filling the whole basement with them to create his Fortress of Solitude.

* Linda from ''Series/BobsBurgers'' collects porcelain babies. She obsesses over them to the point of talking, kissing, and singing to them. The rest of her family finds it disturbing. Her collection appears to be a waste of money because Bob had to confiscate her credit card after ordering too many and she reluctantly attempts to sell the collection to a pawn shop after the family has serious financial trouble but couldn't because they were deemed valueless. Her collection was also [[InterrogationByVandalism threatened to be destroyed when her kids interrogate her.]]

* PawnStars: Played straight, as occasionally someone will bring in an assortment of things that an older relative collected. Said relative has now passed on, and the family is looking to sell the collection. The problem is that such collections are rarely actually ''worth'' anything...
