* ''{{Scrubs}}'': Like the case with most sitcoms, this role can be traded depending on what works for an episode. But the one who plays this on a regular basis is Carla, whom will often be the voice of reason, the only one in the hospital with any common sense and right solution to a problem. Because of this, she is the only one [[{{Jerkass}} Perry Cox]] doesn't dare speak down to.

* ''Series/BlueMountainState'': Alex Moran and Craig Shilo appear to be the only truly normal/sane people at a football college full of bullies, stereotypical freshmen, party-goers etc.

** Liz thinks she's this but in truth, she's just as nuts and messed-up as the rest of the crew.

* ''TheGrinder'' Nearly everyone in town is so star-struck by former actor Dean Sanderson, they ignore or accept his antics -- except for his brother Stewart, who tries in vain to get ''anyone'' to realize that everything Dean says is nonsense. Stew's wife Debbie and co-worker Claire also seem to be immune to Dean's celebrity, but only for Stew is it a constant aggravation.

* ''{{Soap}}'': Benson usually played this role within the Tate household. Mary and Jodie took turns with the SanityBall in the Campbell household.
* In Star Trek Enterprise, two-part episode "In a Mirror, Darkly", Commander Archer is the only sane one of the bunch. He's the only one that has no personal ambitions, wanting to save the Empire from the rebellion. He also has more compassion than the other officers and enlisted men, being disgusted by their new invention, the agony booth. The background setting is a rebellion by the Vulcans, Tellarites, Andorians and other subject races is going to destroy the Empire in a matter of weeks. No hope. Archer gets wind of a ship the Tholians have "acquired" from the future. Despite the war being lost as it is, he can't convince anyone to go to the location and try to take the ship. Captain Forrest is far less intelligent than his Admiral Forrest counterpart in the real universe, being casually brutal. Forrest has no interest in a myth ship, somehow being anxious to throw his life away in a battle that is unwinnable. Even when Archer is successful in forcing the Enterprise to go to the area of Tholian space where the U.S.S. Defiant, Constitution Class is located, and the ship turns out to be everything that Archer was told, Forrest idiotically wants to destroy the ship, rather than take it back with them, insanely wanting to throw away any advantage the ship could give them, probably because it would make Archer look like a hero and Forrest's pride was bruised. Archer seems to be the only one that realizes that this ship could potentially win the war for them. When Archer manages to bring back the ship to his commanding officer, winning a battle against several vessels, the Admiral wants to waste several years taking the ship apart to figure it out. It's insanity: the war will be lost in a few weeks, tops. They have NO TIME to take the ship apart. Archer wants to use the ship to win the war. He's right: it's the Empire's only hope. The Admiral, like Captain Forrest, doesn't see the obvious. So, Archer ends up killing the Admiral in order to save the Empire. From start to finish, Commander Archer is the ONLY one who can see things as they are. He's the only one that isn't nuts.

* ''Series/{{Eureka}}: Sheriff Jack Carter is one for the entire town of Eureka, since it's entirely populated by {{Mad Scientist}}s, and they predictably lack the common sense that would keep some of their experiments from going wrong and threatening the town. While Carter is certainly not as book smart as the rest of the town, including his own genius daughter, he's certainly practical enough on his feet that his quick thinking is always what saves the town from self-destructing from its own scientific curiosity.
