* ''Harper's Island's'' entire premise is that there is at least one victim every week.

* ''Harper's Island's'' ''Series/HarpersIsland's'' entire premise is that there is at least one victim every week.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/MidsomerMurders'' always has at least one, and usually [[NeverOneMurder more than one]].
* ''Series/AgathaRaisin''
* Justified in ''Series/TheCoroner'' as the coroner only gets involved if there is a death to investigate.

* Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, ''Manga/MutekiKanbanMusume'' subverts this trope because the various non-fatal victims of the week that we met at the series are regulars in her DebutQueue (they will not solve their problems) or people who will solve their problems themselves, [[StopHelpingMe despite the help the protagonist gives]].

Common in series that use MonsterOfTheWeek or MysteryOfTheWeek. In more supernatural shows, having a victim of the week is also a very good way to showcase the special powers or other abilities of this week's monster or villain that the hero must overcome in order to save the day.

* If you're in the ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' universe and Kenshiro isn't dealing with ArcVillain or being next to you, pray for your luck and stay away from anyone with [[TheQuincyPunk Mohawk]], because you're likely to be bullied, mugged and killed by [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels them]].

It should be noted that often in MysteryOfTheWeek shows, the VictimOfTheWeek is [[AssholeVictim not sympathetic at all]]. This is due to the fact that there need to be enough suspects wanting the person dead.

* "If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... ''Series/TheATeam''."

to:

* "If ''Series/TheATeam'': Whether it was a person being threatened about the fate of their loved ones if they don't shut up, a small company about to lose their business because of a larger, ruthless competitor, or a woman being forced to marry a GoldDigger, the titular group was on top of it. In some episodes, like "Skins", there was a dead victim as well, but it was much rarer.
