* In ''MadAboutYou'' there is an episode where Paul visits an old apartment of his. That apartment happens to be Jerry Seinfeld's and he runs into and has a rather poignant conversation with Kramer. But in a later episode of ''{{Seinfeld}}'' George is forced to suffer watching an episode of ''Mad About You'' with his fiancee Susan.

* In ''Series/StargateSG1'', Jack O'Neill makes several references to ''TheSimpsons'', Richard Dean Anderson himself, being a huge fan. In season eight, ''DanCastellaneta'' makes a guest appearence (even agreeing with Jack that Mr Burns is the perfect analogy for the Goa'uld). Just to make it more confusing, Anderson once appeared as himself in an episode of ''The Simpsons'' and, oh yes, they mention his work in ''Stargate SG-1''. * In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Cisco has worn a rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock t-shirt, based on ''TheBigBangTheory'', while Sheldon Cooper on ''TheBigBangTheory'' has worn Flash t-shirts and costumes.

* While most of the [[AlternateUniverse parallel Earths]] in ''InfiniteWorlds'' are the result of [[AlternateHistory diverging histories]], there are a few where characters "known" to be fictional on Homeline[[note]]the home timeline of Infinity, implied to be our world TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture[[/note]], such as KingArthur, RobinHood, and SherlockHolmes, exist as real people.

* ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' and ''{{Psych}}'' are both mentioned as TV shows in each other's universes, but unfortunately, that leads to a WhatCouldHaveBeen, because if ''Psych'' hadn't made ''Leverage'' fictional in their universe, WordOfGod says that ''Leverage'''s [[{{Crossover}} Eliot would've had an uncle named Henry]].

** ComicBook/{{Static}}, an AscendedFanboy, lampshades this; he drops his knowledge of PostCrisis Superboy's history, and explains "I read all your comic books! Don't ''you'' read all of ''my'' comic books? (Do I ''have'' comic books?)"

Don't be fair, please. Natter doesn't deserve fairness
** In fairness, ''Doctor Who'' is implied to be fictional ''within itself''. A Seventh Doctor episode had him visit 1963 London, where a TV announcer was cut off half-way through introducing the first episode of a new BBC sci-fi series with the first syllable "Doc-" * References to characters watching ''Series/{{Passions}}'' started showing up during season four of ''Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}''. Shortly afterward, ''Passions'' characters started watching ''Buffy''. ** Also, characters in Buffy have talked about Series/{{Xena|the Warrior Princess}}, whereas, while they clearly can't have a television show on Xena, there is a play called 'Buffus the Bacchae Slayer'. Of course, as Xena is both told by a [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis literary agent]] and [[NoFourthWall fictional within itself]], it's anyone's guess as to what is actually going on.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' takes this trope to its [[MindScrew Mind-Screw extreme]] with the events of the main story and the Midnight Crew. In the world of the main characters of ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' the Midnight Crew are from the latest ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' series, and the reverse is true for the actual members of the Midnight Crew in ''their'' world. However, WordOfGod along with recent events in the story claim that the the Midnight Crew ''exist within the same canon as Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}!'' In other words, it's not a ShowWithinAShow, it's a [[YourHeadAsplode Show Within]] ''[[YourHeadAsplode Itself!]]''

Please don't "speak of" stuff. It's Word Cruft and natter
* This happens to Superman a lot; it used to be that DC/Marvel crossovers operated under the conceit that the characters, if they didn't know of each other, at least operated in the same reality for the duration of the Crossover (Spider-man/Batman, for example), but after ''DC vs. Marvel/Marvel vs. DC'', they were explicitly separate realities. It is true that the Fantastic Four knew of Superman from the events of that crossover in ''Superman/Fantastic Four'', it was also established that Ben Grimm and Franklin Richards knew of Superman from the exploits of his comic book counterpart. ** Incidentally, ''Marvel vs. DC'' played with a retcon of ''Spider-man/Batman'' when the Joker recognized Spider-man from somewhere. Of course, since S/B was set before the Spider-clone saga and ''DC vs. Marvel'' was set after, Ben Reilly Spider-man didn't recognize the Joker from Peter Parker's adventure. * Speaking of DC Comics, pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}} at least, Earth-One and Earth-Two were fictional to each other, and on [[WelcomeToTheRealWorld Earth-Prime]], supposedly all the other alternate universes were fictional.

Once again, Example Indentation
* In a few episodes of ''InspectorGadget'' he can be seen watching ''HeathcliffAndTheCatillacCats'', likewise ''Inspector Gadget'' has showed up as a TV Show on Heatcliff. Both shows were produced by DiC at around the same time.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' ended with Peter and Cleveland appearing, but another one had Steve and Roger watch a WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy DVD. ** This is parodied in the FamilyGuy episode "Excellence in Broadcasting" when Stan is shown watching the episode and is proud of Brian for becoming a conservative.
