* DeconstructorFleet: Once the SitCom tropes had generally been mined out, [[HeyItsThatGuy guest stars]] from classic programs and political figures allowed exploration of tropes ranging from Musicals to health movies.

** The first couple seasons of ''{{Series/Seinfeld}}'' played a lot like a less [[MetaFiction Metafictional]] version of this show. Not accidental, since Jerry Seinfeld had been a longtime associate of Shandling, and Creator/LarryDavid even wrote one episode(credited to "Mac Brandes"). Frequent IGSS writers Tom Gammill and Max Pross also moved on to ''Seinfeld''.

''It's Garry Shandling's Show'' was a late-1980s comedy on Showtime (which would later be rebroadcast on Fox) that turned NoFourthWall into an art form. Comedian Garry Shandling played comedian Garry Shandling, who not only knew he lived inside a sitcom, but had a studio audience "inside" his house. (Sometimes their presence there waiting for him would surprise him when he first came out of his bedroom in the morning.) Garry's visitors, friends and neighbors, while not possessing studio audiences of their own, were all aware of his, and everyone made a point of addressing the audience at some point in the show.
