* On ''TheWestWing'', President Bartlett is forced to nominate complete non-entity "Bingo Bob" as a replacement V.P. to avoid a long confirmation battle, and his speech writers complain bitterly, going so far as to pen a resounding denunciation of this ridiculous lobbyist lapdog. [[HilarityEnsues Inevitably]], it ends up on the president's teleprompter by mistake. In a partial aversion, Bartlett merely gives a surprised blink and then improvises a glowing eulogy, because he is just that awesome. (And the V.P. actually requests a copy, saying he needs to be aware of what people are thinking of him.)

* In the first episode of ''JustShootMe'', Maya is fired from her job in a newscast for changing the teleprompter on an obnoxious anchor, making her say that she got her frontal lobe removed and that she wet herself.

** Another episode has Nina and Maya nominated for fashion magazine awards. Maya's nomination was for an article that was changed without her permission, so she planned a speech rejecting the award and badmouthing the article.
