* Referenced in the first episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' when [[InformedJudaism Wilson]] wonders how Foreman could have gotten through medical school without learning a thing or two about Jews (specifically, that they don't all keep Kosher).

* Referenced in the first episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' when [[InformedJudaism Wilson]] wonders how Foreman could have gotten through medical school without learning a thing or two about Jews (specifically, that they don't all keep Kosher). (The series does not contain this trope, as given that it's set in a hospital in Central Jersey, there may be too ''few'' Jews in the cast--although the absence of East and South Asians is even more glaring.)

* The creator of ''Series/TheWire'' had to explain his intentions when he put a very Jewish man into the role of the "evil lawyer". He explained that every gangster in Baltimore is represented by one of three or four Jewish lawyers who specifically are hired by leading gangsters. To him, the role was about realism, not being politically correct. In contrast, the "good lawyer" of the show is also Jewish, though it's much less noticeable.

* The David Simon, creator of ''Series/TheWire'' ''Series/TheWire'', had to explain his intentions when he put a very Jewish man (Maurice Levy, played by the equally-Jewish Michael Kostroff) into the role of the "evil lawyer". He explained that every gangster in Baltimore is represented by one of three or four Jewish lawyers who specifically are hired by leading gangsters. To him, the role was about realism, not being politically correct. In contrast, the "good lawyer" of the show (Assistant State's Attorney Rhonda Pearlman) is also Jewish, though it's much less noticeable.noticeable (besides the character being non-observant, she is played by the non-Jewish Dierdre Lovejoy). (For the record, David Simon is himself Jewish).

* Invoked on ''Series/BreakingBad'' by Saul Goodman (actual name [=Jimmy McGill=]), who finds that work as an AmoralAttorney comes easier if people think you're Jewish.

* Invoked on ''Series/BreakingBad'' by Saul Goodman (actual name [=Jimmy McGill=]), who finds that work as an AmoralAttorney comes easier if who claims to use the name because people think you're Jewish.(or at least criminals) are more likely to hire a Jewish lawyer. [[Series/BetterCallSaul Though he has also used the name in the past when scamming people for beer money with his friend Marco]].

* Lampshaded hilariously in the Creator/MontyPython musical ''{{Spamalot}}'', in the number "You Won't Succeed On Broadway (If You Don't Have Any Jews)". They succeed after all because [[spoiler: Patsy]] turns out to be Jewish, though he's reluctant to reveal it to heavily armed Christians. The joke was changed to "stars" in the UK out of fears that we Brits just wouldn't get it due to the UK's small Jewish population. (The title of the song is also changed, to "You Won't Succeed in Showbusiness").

* [[http://multiplexcomic.com/archive.php?name=27 This]] {{Multiplex}} strip implies that Hollywood Jews [[JesusTaboo water down Christmas movies]] to promote secular themes rather than religious ones. The reality is more likely that [[MoneyDearBoy religious movies don't tend to put asses in seats]]. Or that Jewish writers have only ''experienced'' watered down secular Christmases so that's all they know how to write about it.

* As demonstrated in [[http://www.complex.com/music/2013/08/rap-jewish-lawyers-video-lyrics this supercut]], a great number of hip-hop artists have Jewish lawyers. The accompanying article explains this connection between Black people and Jewish lawyers goes back a long way. Jews were by and large the only white people to actively support the Civil Rights Movement, and so Jews were as disproportionately represented among civil rights lawyers in the 60s as they seem to be among rappers' counsel today.

** ''A Star Called Henry'' (set during the Irish Revolution just after WorldWarI) has the hero have a rather {{anvilicious}} friendship with a Latvian Jewish refugee. At the time there were about 3000 Jews in Dublin (0.8% of the population) so it comes across as a bit forced since the only real reason for them to be Jewish is so Doyle can make the IRA seem [[AuthorTract even more evil]] when they disapprove of his friendship.
