** In "The Son Also Draws", Peter ends up driving the family to an Indian-owned casino because in the middle of a driving trip he really needs to go to the bathroom. He tries holding it in during the trip, but he keeps getting reminded with messages such as a sign stating "Dump Next Left", a trailer passing them with the notice "Wide Load", a nearby furniture store advertising "All Stools Must Go!", another car with a bumper sticker about how its driver loves their Shih Tzu, and another sign advertising "Bob's House of Feces" ([[LampshadeHanging "Oh come on, that one's not even real!"]]).

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': In "Daylight Savings", the Professor institutes a 7:30 curfew for the girls, giving all the villains and monsters a perfect opportunity to wreak havoc on Townsville. He tries to get his mind off of the temptation to lift the curfew by watching TV, but every channel is news about how Townsville is getting destroyed. The Professor finally finds solace in the time channel...where he realizes that he forgot to set the clocks back an hour, which gives the girls time to save the day. The trope is finally inverted when he flips through the channels again to hear that things are getting back to normal.

** In "Tintin and the Picaros", Captain Haddock inexplicably finds alcohol tastes awful (because Calculus has [[NailedToTheWagon secretly given him a drug]]). After a very tiring day, he relaxes in front of the TV, only to find it's showing an add for Loch Lomond whiskey.

* This seems to happen to {{Garfield}} every time he's [[DietEpisode on a diet]]; the TV seems to have a lot more food commercials. Worst example: He tried to watch TV to take his mind off food, and turned to a program called ''Bowling for Meatloaf''. In the next panel, he and Jon were at the vet's waiting room with the TV lodged in Garfield's mouth.

* ''Series/HangTime'': A twist in that it's also Your Book Hates You; in the episode "Fighting for Your Dreams," Kristy tries to take Antonio's mind off of blowing a shot at getting into the University of Kentucky after injuring his knee by watching TV... only to turn on the Kentucky Derby, and then a commercial for Kentucky Fried Chicken (although she turns off the TV before the announcer says the full name). She then reads a mystery book to him, in which the character remembers the summers he spent in... you know where this is going.
