** ''Punch'' was, interestingly enough, an express attempt at replicating a French satirical magazine of the day, ''Le Charivari'', a Paris magazine that lampooned July Monarchy-era French politics and mores--as evidenced by the British publication's full title, ''Punch, [[EitherOrTitle or the London Charivari]]''. That being said, the actual ''Charivari'' of Paris stopped doing satire shortly after ''Punch'' started, turning into a lifestyle magazine, after falling afoul of Louis-Philippe's censors.
** ''Punch'' also inspired an [[TransAtlanticEquivalent American publication]] named ''Puck'' (which ran 1871-1903).
* The pornographic magazine ''{{Hustler}}'' uses satire to express Larry Flynt's beliefs and opinions. Almost always Juvenalian.

* The articles in ''Magazine/PrivateEye'' are mostly Juvenalian satire...when they aren't hard-hitting straight-up exposés of real wrongdoing. Sometimes articles do dip into the Horatian (particularly the Prime Minister parodies, which are usually too ridiculous to be truly stinging). Incidentally, the founders of ''Private Eye'' in TheSixties specifically cited (again) ''Punch'' in its heyday as their inspiration.

inspiration--rather than as it existed in their time, which they found rather insipid (and which eventually was reduced to writing nasty articles at the ''Eye''[='s=] expense).

* ''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.
