** The '' Search'' live ep is even more suspicious, happening not long after the movie ''{{Tootsie}}'', in which an almost identical incident is part of the plotline, was released. Coincidence or contrivance?

* ''WillAndGrace'' did one in 2005, for the first episode of the final season, and another one several episodes later. * Fox sitcom ''{{Roc}}'' arguably started the modern-day trend for live episodes. After presenting one episode live in the first season, the entire second season was broadcast live. It went back to taped shows for its third (and last) season.

* Unlike US soaps of the same period, only the first few episodes of ''CoronationStreet'' were shown live in 1960. Exactly 40 years later ''Coronation Street'' again did a live episode for its 40th anniversary. This one was notable for featuring one of the characters, Audrey Roberts meeting (the real) Prince Charles (albeit that particular scene was pre-recorded with the other characters watching Audrey meet Prince Charles in a TV broadcast). * Sticking with British soaps, ''{{Eastenders}}'' celebrated 25 years with its first live episode.

* ''[[Series/ThirtyRock 30 Rock]]'' - a sitcom shot with a single camera with no laugh track - did a live episode, complete with live audience, [[spoiler:and [[Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus Julia Louis-Dreyfuss]] playing Liz in her flashbacks, because "My memory has ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' money"]]. The [[VideoInsideFilmOutside different look]] was immediately {{Lampshaded}}:

* ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'' had an episode where only the opening shot was done live. It was aired after the SuperBowl, and the live segment was Dick running into the stadium to warn people of an AlienInvasion.

* ''Series/{{Undateable}}'' had a fourth wall breaking live episode in its second season that was packed with celebrity cameos (mostly from ''Seres/{{Scrubs}}'') and generated an enormous amount of buzz. So much that the entire third season is set to be broadcast live.

* ''{{ER}}'' has done at least one (also doubling as a DocumentaryEpisode). * In the past, before video-recording was common (or even ''invented'', as per Creator/BettyWhite's comment above), many programmes were necessarily live, especially [[SoapOpera soaps]]. A 1983 ep of ''SearchForTomorrow'' was done live after the master tapes were accidentally erased. But by the time ''OneLifeToLive'' did a week of live eps in 2002, live eps were more a gimmick than a necessity. (Even with the ''Search'' example, many people accused NBC of lying about the lost tape to generate buzz for the show.) Incidentally, the necessity of live episodes for soaps (plus later, the practice of video wiping) is why not many 60s and 70s soap eps are [[MissingEpisode known to exist]] ({{Game Show}}s have also suffered from this as well).

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', where it was advertised as the first ever live episode of an animated series - a patent imposibility. The episode poked fun of the various things that go wrong on live episodes, including a character having an on-air meltdown and [[spoiler:guest star JuliaRoberts dying on stage.]]
