* In ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', Oliver's son William warms up to Felicity pretty quickly, especially after she starts helping him with his math homework, given that math has never been Oliver's strong suit. Eventually, after Oliver and Felicity get married, William stops being afraid of becoming an orphan in case Oliver is killed while out as the Green Arrow, since now he has a stepmom.

* ''{{Dynasty}}'': Much of the first season focused on this, as the plot is kickstarted when the former SexySecretary of the male lead becomes his second wife as well as the female lead, which his adult/teenage sons and daughters '''really'' dislike. And then the ex-wife shows up in the second season...

* ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' has this as both a RunningGag and an occasional cause of TearJerker moments. London Tipton's father is constantly marrying new women after his first wife, and all of them end up divorcing him fairly quickly. The one time we see a stepmother in person she does make an effort to make a bond with London, who at first wants none of it because she believes that her new stepmother will be gone faster than she can blink. London actually has a ''charm bracelet'' that lets her count how many step-mothers she's had.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheOfficeUS'': In the episode "The Lover", Pam returns from her honeymoon to learn that her boss Michael has been sleeping with her divorced mother since the wedding. She freaks out and behaves so much like an angry child dissatisfied with a new stepfather that she makes Michael look uncharacteristically reasonable by comparison. She even says at one point, "[[YoureNotMyFather You'll never be my father]]!"

* ''Series/GilmoreGirls'': Shows up more than once, perhaps unsurprisingly what with ''Gilmore Girls'' being a show about a single HotMom and her teenage daughter. Rory usually gets along well with Lorelai's boyfriends, and indeed gets upset at least once about her mother not properly breaking up with them.

* ''TheBradyBunch'': This is the case of Parent With New Paramour taken to the ideal conclusion, with a relative minimum of tension between the parents and step children.

* ''{{Misfits}}'': Nathan and his mum's live-in boyfriend Jeremy do ''not'' get on - it seems to be mostly Nathan's fault though, and apparently he has a history of trying to ruin his mum's relationships (he even falsely accused one of her previous boyfriends of sexually assaulting him). He verbally abuses Jeremy a lot, even punching him for no good reason at one point and breaking the guy's nose. Nathan's mum gets sick of the situation and actually kicks her son out of the house, making him homeless. They do reconcile in the end though, and Nathan accepts that he was wrong to stand in the way of his mum's happiness and he moves out of the house permanently.
* ''PushingDaisies'': Has a tweaked example: Ned's father trots him off to boarding school and ignores him in favor of his new wife and kids.
