** Later on, [[spoiler: Peridot]], of all people, ends up hooked on a camp-based show called Camp Pining Hearts (pictured above). Or rather, hooked on [[UpToEleven one episode for 78 hours]]. Steven wisely decides not to tell her there's more than one.

* ''GoodLuckCharlie'' had three of the characters suddenly become engrossed in a soap called ''Tears of Tomorrow'' and then move on to ''another'' soap when the first got cancelled (not-so-coincidentally at a time when cancelling long-running soaps was making headlines). The CreditsGag is a reenactment of ''Tears of Tomorrow'', which crams in a lot of the soap conventions mentioned in the main article within a space of ''30 seconds''.

* ''Acorn Antiques'' from ''Victoria Wood: As Seen On TV'' was a parody of everything that was bad about UK soaps of the period. Mostly ''Series/{{Crossroads}}'' (the episode where the antique shop is suddenly a health spa with no explanation is a reference to something very similar happening to the Crossroads Motel), but with a few digs at ''EastEnders'' (such as the tie-in single [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anyone_Can_Fall_in_Love "Anyone Can Break a Vase"]]).
