* ''Series/{{Veep}}'', TransAtlanticEquivalent of ''The Thick of It'', is, despite coming from the same crew, surprisingly far less Juvenalian and even moves into Horatian territory, with the politicians and staffers mostly being overworked or likably incompetent rather than scheming sons-of-bitches. It helps that there is no clear equivalent to Malcolm; the InvisiblePresident's messenger to the VP's office is possibly the saddest schmuck in the District (and the District is ''full'' of schmucks). This is partly because Creator/ArmandoIannucci was struck (while researching for ''Film/InTheLoop'') about how ''young'' everyone in the American government seemed to be.

* ''HaveIGotNewsForYou''. Fittingly for the editor of Juvenalian satirical magazine ''PrivateEye'', Ian Hislop's contributions are toward the Juvenalian end of the scale, while Paul Merton tends more toward the Horatian end when he isn't making plays on words or indulging in surrealism and flights of fancy.

* Depending on if you consider it a parody or not ''Anime/BlackLagoon'' is this towards the over the top violence that was 90's anime.

to:

* ''Podcast/KakosIndustries'' satirizes the concept of Evil itself, it being seen as something that is never solidly defined but is treated as though it can be bought, sold, measured, and enhanced among the EvilInc the show takes place in. Bare in mind that the podcast functions as a news style WorkCom while having this as the central plot.

* The "Really!?! with Seth (and Amy)" skit on ''SaturdayNightLive''. Constantly points out the absurdity of celebrities or politicians by comparing their actions with how the same actions would affect ordinary people. Typically Juvenalian, although Creator/TinaFey's "Really!?!" to Greece on her first guest appearance in 2008 was more disappointed than nasty.

** EliRoth’s ''Film/TheGreenInferno'' is more bloody, gorier & more barbarically gruesome, not to mention even more controversial.
