* Ever since it came back in 2005, BBC One has a habit of pairing up Series/DoctorWho with its singing/dancing competitions. For the first two series, ''Strictly Dance Fever'' was used as a lead in, which was reversed for series 3-5 when 'Who' lead in to ''Any Dream Will Do'', ''I'd Do Anything'' & ''Over the Rainbow''. Then, during the Peter Capaldi years, the show was lead in by ''Series/StrictlyComeDancing'', often resulting in a later than usual time slot.
** Naturally, this was also the case with Series/RobinHood, which lead into ''Strictly Come Dancing'' for its first episode; The two shows were swapped for episode two and stayed that way for the first two series.

* Given that live eviction shows would be a highlights show and TheReveal, with a half-hour break before the exit interview, ''Series/BigBrother'', as mentioned above, was ''the'' example of this for ChannelFour, supporting every series of ''TheFridayNightProject'' and ''Series/EightOutOfTenCats''. Until the later series, where it began to need a LeadIn of its own.

Therefore, having the right show before you can make a huge difference in your UsefulNotes/{{ratings}}- often over a million viewers (''Series/{{Lost}}'' in the UK shed 1.3 million viewers between premiere and its next showing; ''BigBrother'' wasn't on for the second week).

* Often, an episode of ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'' begins with Miss Brooks conversing with Mrs. Davis over breakfast. While the conversation usually has relevance to the plot of the episode, occasionally it'll just be a wacky interlude before the main story comes into play.

* ''Series/{{MASH}}'' performed rather badly in the {{Ratings}} during its first season, when it was poorly placed in the {{Creator/CBS}} lineup. For the second season, CBS moved it between ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' and ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow'', which instantly turned ''M*A*S*H'' into the hit we now know it as.

* ''SixFeetUnder'' begins with a LeadIn showing a person's death. The remainder of the show is sometimes related to that person, and sometimes not.

* ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'''s LeadIn is usually its own self-contained comedy sketch, unrelated to the rest of the episode except for brief reference after the commercials.
* {{Sliders}}, mostly in early seasons, always started with the main characters in a random world ready to slide into the world that would be the setting for the episode. These lead-in stories rarely contribute to the main adventure itself (with some exceptions, like "The Breeder")

** {{Calvin and Hobbes}} famously averted this in its later years; once the strip became popular enough that [[ProtectionFromEditors he had some clout]], creator Bill Waterson insisted that newspapers either run the Sunday strip unchanged, or not run it at all.

* ''FamilyGuy'' uses this in almost every episode.
* ''TheSimpsons'' have used a lead in with almost every episode as an intentionally convoluted path to the main story. It is so convoluted at times, the writers feel compelled to use a CallBack or blatant LampshadeHanging referencing the Lead In.
