** Back when the show first started, it was called ''NBC's Saturday Night''. LorneMichaels wanted his show to be called ''Saturday Night Live'' right off the bat, but ABC already had a variety show with that name hosted by Howard Cosell -- who later hosted the last episode of ''SNL'''s tenth season.
** In its second season, the "NBC" part was dropped and the show was just called ''Saturday Night'', at which time, the ABC version of ''Saturday Night Live'' was flopping and Bill Murray (a cast member from ''that'' ''SNL'') was hired as a replacement for Chevy Chase (who left the NBC ''SNL'' for a girl and a movie career). By season three of the NBC ''SNL'', the ABC ''SNL'' was canceled and LorneMichaels could finally call the show ''Saturday Night Live''.

* ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'' was changed to ''So Random!'' in its most recent season, focusing on the ShowWithinAShow that is titled as such. This was done due to the lead actress DemiLovato going to rehab.

* By the end of the first season of ''{{Cougartown}}'', the producers felt that the name [[ArtifactTitle no longer fit the show's premise]], but couldn't come up with a new name. So in the first episode of the second season, the title card reads ''(Still) Cougartown''. The subtitle became a CouchGag in subsequent episodes - ''(Badly Titled) Cougartown'', ''(Titles Are Hard) Cougartown'', etc. It finally changed to ''Sunshine State''... for the last episode of the series.

* Downplayed example with ''Series/StrangerThings''; in Season 2 of the series, it was officially titled as ''[[NumberedSequels Stranger Things 2]]'', as if it was a sequel to a movie. Presumably, future seasons of the show will be named ''Stranger Things 3'' and so forth.

* Common in anime because of the way Japanese television works. Japanese series don't have "seasons" the way American television does; they produce either a [[BritishBrevity small, preplanned number of episodes]] in advance - usually [[TwelveEpisodeAnime some multiple of 13]]-- or they [[LongRunner just.]] [[ArcFatigue Keep.]] [[EndingFatigue Going]] without a break, because if they didn't, they'd lose their time slot. If the creators of a show that ''has'' taken a break want to bring it back, they need to find a time slot and pitch it as if it were a brand new show, so they generally retitle it to reflect this. Sometimes what would be considered a "second season" in America is treated as a NumberedSequel as though it were a film sequel, as in ''Manga/{{Genshiken}} 2'' and ''Anime/TheBigO 2''. These are sometimes marketed as "seasons" for American release.
