* 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.

Therefore, having the right show before you can make a huge difference in your {{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).

* ''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.

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