* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', Fry participates in the quiz show, "Who Dares to Be a Millionaire?" hosted by Morbo. Stupid as Fry is, he quickly left after failing the $1 question thinking that the tool to use to hammer a nail is a another nail which becomes the RunningGag of this episode.

* The beginning of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode featured Moe in a ''WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'' parody game show facing a nuclear-related question for $500,000. He calls Homer because he works at the nuclear power plant, however, Lisa gave Moe the answer. Moe decides to stay for half rather than risking for a million. The episode proceeds to the actual plot about Krusty's ratings being stolen.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/StreetSmarts'', if both players ended with $0, they both walked away with nothing. Of course, this game doesn't have a minimum prize, so it was possible for the winning player to only have $1 or some other low value.
* In ''Series/FriendOrFoe'', it was possible for one or both players to walk away with nothing if one or both of them picked Foe.


Added DiffLines:

* Another Archie Story has Jughead wander onto the set of a Game Show called "The Really Big Deal," a parody of ''Series/LetsMakeADeal''. He correctly answers a question for $500, but trades it for what's behind Door #1, which is revealed to be a camcorder set worth more than $2000.

* In an issue of the original ''Manga/YuGiOh'' manga, Jounouchi becomes a contestant on a game show called "Get a Million Yen!", which has a top prize of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a million yen.]] Yugi, however, finds out the game is rigged, and ends up playing a Shadow Game with the producer.

However, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero thanks to Yami Yugi's penalty game causing the producer to demand money on the air]], the production company goes bankrupt, rendering Jounouchi's check for one million yen worthless.

** And later the whole family on ''Series/FamilyFeud'', where Sandra does horrible in the first section of Fast Money, and Calvin nearly wins it all on his own...except for switching his final answer from the one that would've won them the big money.

* ''Series/LateNight with Creator/JimmyFallon'' has a sketch called "Wheel of Game Shows", where (as a SpinOff of [[{{Calvinball}} Wheel of Carpet Samples]]) audience members are subject to minigames that are outright impossible to win. From a recent episode, a "spot the difference" game was rigged to have a very obvious difference that Fallon ultimately denied the existence of, the red tissue someone asked to find was [[MoonLogicPuzzle on the bottom of the tissue box instead of inside it]], a rebus puzzle has an UnexpectedlyObscureAnswer ("Play My Sports" instead of "[[AccidentalInnuendo Tickle My Balls]]"), and Fallon assumes people know how to play "Brownie Points" (you stack them, not eat them. They're allegedly laced with [[{{Squick}} PCP]]).
