** A bit in which Tracy does a terrible job of {{Corpsing}} was likely a snipe at Tracy Morgan's former ''SNL'' castmate Jimmy Fallon, who frequently cracked up during skits, much to Tracy's annoyance.



* Speaking of [[SoapOpera soaps]], they'd often do this to themselves. There are too many examples to list, but an ''Series​/AllMyChildren'' character once muttered, "I feel like I'm in the middle of a daytime serial" while trying to referee an argument between his girlfriend and her parents.



** ''ER'' even took a swipe at ITSELF. An episode that had a doctor who worked with a news crew hovering outside the hospital and giving incorrect information to the public had a character commenting, "Ugh. TV doctors."

* ''Series/TheApprentice'': After Creator/DonaldTrump called Sir Alan Sugar (who hosts the UK version) a smalltimer, Sugar had the mention of his worth (over a billion pounds) reinstated to the show's opening. This was juxt weeks before Trump became US President(-Elect), unfortunately for Sir Alan's ego.

esponds* ''Series/{{Misfits}}'' has had a couple of pretty overt jabs at ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. Very early on there's a scene where all of the characters break down laughing at the idea that they should all start fighting crime and saving the world (although that could just be superhero stories in general). But S2 has a wimpy SoapboxSadie champagne socialist rich-boy who jumps to the conclusion that he might become the most important of the characters... and instantly gets killed off. And the villain of the S2 Christmas episode is a handsome dark-haired guy who wants to be the most powerful person in the world, collects other people's powers but mostly uses telekenesis... and is an utterly pathetic douchenozzle who dies ludicrously well before the end of the ep through stupidly misusing one of his own powers. Anyone get the idea that the writers don't like a certain trustafarian male nurse or a certain guy named after a watch brand?

** In the episode "Family Ties," Jacek expresses his disappointment at the SGC facility to Samantha Carter. What follows sounds like meaningless banter, unless you know that the SG-1 series was in its last season, and had been replaced with the show ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' by [[Creator/SciFiChannel the SyFy network]].
