* ''Series/{{Roundhouse}}'' ** A VerySpecialEpisode about gangs has a montage of this type, with show parodies such as ''[[Series/NorthernExposure Northern Explosion]]'' and ''[[Series/ThePartridgeFamily The Cartridge Family]]''. ** Another instance takes this UpToEleven as the shows that Lisa watches to get her mind off not being able to get a date for the school dance seem to be about... her not being able to get a date for the school dance.

** On another episode of Arthur we see Arthur's Jewish friend trying to make it through her first fast during Yom Kippur. When she gets hungry midway through the day, she tries to watch TV only to first see a cooking show about sweet rolls, a commercial for a chicken restaurant, and then a sitcom with a girl eating sloppy joes. Instead of TV she decides reading is a better option, only to be confronted by books including "Food of the Gods", "Breakfast at Tiffany's", and "Who Moved My Cheese?" She picks "Little Dory" by Charles Dickens only to be confronted by a paragraph on roast beef.

This is why on Tumblr around those holidays some people advise users to tag posts relating to food so they can be blocked by users who are fasting.[[/note]]

[[AC:TruthInTelevision]] * The entire BBC suffered a major power failure on 30th June 2001, which affected the whole Television Centre knocking all its services off the air. Flipping through the BBC television channels didn't help either: all they displayed during the outage was WeAreExperiencingTechnicalDifficulties cards.
