* In ''bro'Town'', a New Zealand animated comedy, the role of Jay Leno is taken by Rove [=McManus=] who is the Australian equivalent.

* Obligatory WhateleyUniverse example: In "Ayla and the Birthday Brawl", the big [=IPO=] that Phase has started by buying out ''Marvel Comics'' gets news coverage... including a joke about it by Dennis Miller while appearing on Bill Maher's show.

This carries over to the in-show universes. How do you show President Bartlet's actions are getting a lot of press? Get Jay Leno to guest star on ''TheWestWing'' and do a ShowWithinAShow mention of it. For slightly older shows or movies, Larry King may be substituted. Even older ones used Johnny Carson, and further back you'd get Jack Paar or even Milton Berle.

* ''Series/{{Caprica}}'' does this despite being set [[ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway a long time ago in a star system far away]] through the clever use of [[{{Expy}} Expies]]. Baxter Sarno (played by Creator/PattonOswalt) is made out to be a cross between [[TheTonightShow Jay Leno]] and [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]]. He combines the former's comedy format with the latter's cutting insight, tendency to [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass bring down]] [[BewareTheSillyOnes Very Powerful People]]. He is mentioned as "tearing a new one" out of the Caprican Minister of Commerce. The target demographic is also similar: "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything a majority of college students get most of their news from Sarno]]".\\

* The Creator/RobinWilliams film ''Man of the Year'' features his presidential character being a special guest on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', featuring then-Weekend Update anchors TinaFey and Amy Poehler. Amusingly enough, the movie was filmed during Fey's last season on ''[=SNL=]'' and released two days after ''Series/ThirtyRock'' started, so the movie was actually dated even before it came out. [[NewsMonopoly Just to keep it in-house]], MSNBC anchor and politics junkie Chris Matthews was also in the film, revealing election returns.

Sure, bloggers have blogged about it, the [[SpinningNewspaper dead-tree media have gone on and on]], the local TV news has flogged it to death, but it is not really news until [[TheTonightShow Jay Leno]], Creator/ConanOBrien, [[Series/TheColbertReport Stephen Colbert]], [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]], or Creator/JimmyFallon has taken notice.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheMartian'': It's in the DVDBonusContent rather than the film proper, but the cameo by Creator/NeilDeGrasseTyson is strongly implied to be a tie-in with ''Series/CosmosASpacetimeOdyssey'' in-universe. A sort of print-media version of this trope is also used when Bruce Ng and a couple of Chinese rocket engineers appear on the cover of ''Magazine/{{TIME}}''.

* Terry Benedict goes on "Oprah" at the end of ''[[OceansEleven Ocean's Thirteen]]''.
* ''Film/ForrestGump'' - Forrest has met [[ElvisPresley Elvis]], become a war hero, a millionaire, and has met a bunch of Presidents. But he really becomes a pop star with his appearance on ''The Dick Cavett Show''.
