* ''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.

* ''Series/{{Wiseguy}}''. After Frank [=McPike=] is thrown out of his house by his wife, he's DrowningMySorrows in a bar when the jukebox starts playing "Hit The Road, Jack" (and don't come back no more no more no more, etc). Frank calmly walks over to the jukebox and shoots it.

** 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.[[note]]This can be TruthInTelevision for some people who also fast for Yom Kippur or Ramadan, being confronted with food-related posts on social media outlets. 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]]

* This happens to Guy Hamdon of all people in the ''WesternAnimation/SheZow'' episode "Super Sidekick", when Shaverine is stealing the limelight away from [=SheZow=], (and much like the ''Barney Miller'' example) even the Spanish speaking channel.

* ''Between Silk and Cyanide''. Leo Marks is exasperated by SOE's pointless InterservicesRivalry with C, the head of British Intelligence. He thinks of going to see a movie to put his mind off it, but as the movie is ''Film/FollowTheFleet'' decides it would be best not to listen to Fred Astaire singing about joining the navy to C the C.
