* In one episode of ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'', there was a play called "The Mermaid Princess", which is based on Creator/HansChristianAndersen's "Literature/TheLittleMermaid", took place in the school. Despite [[TheHero Lucia's]] clumsiness, and a (real) attack from the water demons, the show continued thanks to Rina's quick wit in ad libs. Since part of the ad lib involved the main trio transforming and making a performance (driving away the water demons), the rest of the play had to be improvised.

* Similar to the ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' example, ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'' had an incident early on. Urara is chosen to be the MC for a kid's play, but it turns out that the actress playing the rabbit fell ill. Nozomi, not wanting her friend's big day ruined, takes up the role of the rabbit... despite Rin pointing out that she was ''banned'' from the Drama Club after only 3 days in. Despite this, they go with it and things start out alright... only for Girinma to arrive and summon the MonsterOfTheWeek. The girls are able to blind most everyone to transform and the audience is treated to a Pretty Cure fight... which is a big hit with the crowds. When Urara's manager approaches Urara once more and wants the same thing to happen, the poor girl's left in a bind, while her friends tell the audience their answer.

* The great French playwright Moliere was performing when he collapsed in a fit of coughing and haemhorrhaging. He recovered, completed the show, and died a few hours later. Ironically, the play he was performing was ''The Imaginary Invalid,'' in which he played a hypochondriac.

The stress of performing under those conditions was so great that he fainted as soon as the broadcast was over.

* ''Match Game'' on CBS had an incident where Joyce Bulifant's microphone stand broke. Instead of stopping tape to repair it, host Gene Rayburn called for a screwdriver as he repaired it right then and there.

* A 1988 episode of ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' was taped during a major storm in Los Angeles, so nearly 2/3 of the audience was empty. The cameramen did their best to show only the middle portion of the audience and give the impression that the studio was still full.
