'''''Just Shoot Me!''''' (1997-2003) was an Creator/{{NBC}} WorkCom about Maya Gallo, a highly qualified but difficult-to-work-with journalist, who, after alienating one news anchor too many, is forced to take a job with the trashy ''Cosmopolitan''-esque fashion magazine run by her estranged father Jack Gallo. Originally focusing on the father-daughter bonds, it quickly became a workplace ensemble piece with supporting characters Dennis Finch (the dad's personal assistant) and Nina Van Horn (an ex-model turned writer for the magazine) taking over as the main characters of the series.

Notably predated ''UglyBetty'' (as well as ''YoSoyBettyLaFea'') and ''Literature/TheDevilWearsPrada'' with the premise of a non-materialistic woman working for a shallow magazine. Was ultimately canceled due to ExecutiveMeddling and being bounced around the schedule, though it managed to serve up a GrandFinale.

* RepeatedCueTardyResponse: Dennis forgot to buy Jack's lottery ticket on the one occasion when he actually wins. To cover it up, he doctors a ticket and leaves Jack's office window open, so that the ticket will fly away when Nina opens the door. The cue is Dennis saying "Lucky day", but Nina mistakenly thinks it's Marvin Gaye. Dennis continues on saying "Lucky day" in vain before Nina opens the door because she got tired of waiting.
