* PaperThinDisguise: In "That's So Sonny", a sort-of MythologyGag to ThatsSoRaven, features Raven as [[LoonyFan Amber]], president of Chad's Fanclub, trying to pry information out of Nico and Grady in a horrible man disguise, similar to many times on her former show. She also tricks Tawni, by being a facialist known as [[FunnyForeigner Mia Babouti]], who speaks in a [[OohMeAccentsSlipping very odd accent]].

*** Both might owe a little to Lily Tomlin's LaughIn character, Edith Ann, making it OlderThanYouThink.

** One episode of Mackenzie Falls mentions a 'freak ballooning accident', likely a direct reference to the 'Moody's Point' soap sketch from TheAmandaShow

*** It could also be something of a homage to various 90's kid sketch comedy shows such as Series/AllThat and TheAmandaShow (it started in 99). Ironically, both of those were on Disney's rival Nick. Especially since the creator of Series/AllThat works on the show. Compare Moody's Point, with Mackenzie Falls.

''Sonny with a Chance'' (2009-2011) is a DisneyChannel show about a girl who joins the cast of a kids' sketch comedy show called ''So Random!''. The show follows the {{Zany Scheme}}s of the cast members, as well as those of the star of [[SoapWithinAShow melodramatic]] TeenDrama ''Mackenzie Falls'', a rival TV show that appears to shoot at the same studio.

* TheCastShowoff: In addition to the more obvious [[IdolSinger example]] in DemiLovato, Tiffany Thornton has been getting this treatment as well.



* CutShort: Due to DemiLovato leaving the show (and in turn converting the main show to So Random), The series ends as this, with the last episode where Sonny and Chad have a small talk and Sonny sings bits of her last song while walking away.
** In short, You'll never get a chance to see Chad and Sonny get back together, or the entire Season 3. ever.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: With the absence of series star DemiLovato due to various personal problems, it was recently announced that the show will be undergoing a [[http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118027434 temporary revamp]] with more emphasis on the ShowWithinAShow "So Random".
** However, the revamp is not temporary anymore. Demi won't be coming back anymore, although some of the cast members said she's welcome to come back anytime, or at least guest {{as herself}}.

* BlondesAreEvil: Averted. Tawni's mostly just a drama queen (the Season 1 finale solidified her as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold) and Chad is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who is very, very adorable in many of his [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moments]] with Sonny, especially so since ''Falling For The Falls Part I''.

Characters include Sonny, the NaiveNewcomer and PromotedFangirl; Tawni, the AlphaBitch of the cast; Nico, the show's token attractive male star and borderline KidAnova; Grady, Nico's best friend; Zora, miniature {{Zany Scheme}}ster and borderline junior ManicPixieDreamGirl; and Chad Dylan Cooper, the aforementioned star of ''Mackenzie Falls'' and token JerkWithAHeartOfGold who consorts with Sonny and her castmates. ''Sonny with a Chance'' is a vehicle for Radio Disney pop-star DemiLovato, joining other live-action Disney Channel series such as ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'', ''HannahMontana'', and ''LizzieMcGuire''.

Come the third season however, the title of the show adopted its {{Defictionalized}} version of the ShowWithinAShow, ''Series/SoRandom'', due to the departure of DemiLovato (i.e. Sonny) from the cast. The format changed a bit as well, changing to a variety comedy akin to ''Series/AllThat'', though it still features the same characters (along with new ones).
