** Kay Howard passes the promotion exam and becomes a Sergeant at the beginning of Season 4. John Munch had planned to take the exam at the same time, but he missed it because he couldn't find his lucky socks.
** Megan Russert is promoted from Lieutenant to Captain in Season 3, to the surprise of Al Giardello (same rank, but longer time with the BPD). She gets busted all the way down to Detective in Season 4.
** Over the course of two seasons (3 and 4), Roger Gaffney somehow gets promoted from Detective all the way to Captain, ultimately replacing the demoted Russert and infuriating Giardello no end.

* ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'': At the beginning of the series, the garrison commander is Major Richter and the ranking SS officer is Hauptsturmführer Reinicke. In the first episode of the second season, Reinicke is given a promotion to Sturmbahnführer as part of a gambit by his SS superiors -- the rank is the SS equivalent of Major, so Richter can no longer overrule him as he did several times in the first season. He gets one scene to enjoy his new position before Richter breaks the news that his own Army superiors have responded by bumping Richter up to Oberst.

Tony gets promoted to director of CTU in season 2.2.
** Bill Buchanan is an odd example. He was introduced on Day 4 as regional director of Division, which would have him supervising all CTU bureaus in California, but on Day 5 he's now in command of just CTU Los Angeles. It's still treated as a promotion because it's the show's equivalent of a FrontlineGeneral.
