* For a time, ''AttackOfTheShow'' ran promos of this sort, with generic blurbs from industry publications. "TV Guide raves: 'It's a [...] show.' See the show that Entertainment Weekly called 'on at 7 (6 central)'!"

As most of the Legion of Doom are [[VillainousUnderdog pretty]] [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway unimpressive]], Seanbaby theorizes that, after running through the three Legion members with actual powers, he'd swiftly fall into this.

A character is called upon to say something positive about a subject or a person, but they can't think of ''anything'' nice to say that wouldn't be blatantly untrue. Rather than lying, they give some neutral statement that would make CaptainObvious proud, and dress it up like a compliment. Alternatively, the resident [[DeadpanSnarker smartass]] may deliberately quip this way in order to [[DamnedByFaintPraise damn with faint praise]].

* On ''Series/NightCourt'', the cast believe sleazy prosecutor Dan Fielding is dead, and Harry is called on to deliver the eulogy. The best he can come up with is "Dan was a mammal." In another episode, Harry tells a highly sophisticated AI to find reasons to save the life of its suicidal inventor (it makes as much sense in context as Night Court ever does), and it proposes "You are an efficient converter of oxygen to carbon dioxide."
