** The episode "Live Free or Twihard" is basically one giant Take That to Twilight.

** 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]].

** In a meta example, when the show moved from WB to UPN, a WB executive said that UPN stood for "Used Parts Network". A UPN executive countered that WB stood for "Without ''Buffy''".

* During the 1990s, the late Jeremy Beadle hosted several popular game shows and comedy programmes on British TV. He was the original presenter of ''You've Been Framed'', a TransatlanticEquivalent to ''Series/AmericasFunniestHomeVideos''. Later, he moved onto a short-lived show called ''Beadle's Hotshots'', where the public would film their own parodies of popular television and send them to him to broadcast. One of the best remembered of these was "You've Fallen Over", a TakeThat which implied that ''You've Been Framed'' consisted mostly of stupid clips of people falling over, and that the "home videos" sent in were all staged.
* ''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 ''Series/IZombie'' episode "Grumpy Old Liv", Liv ends up temporarily saddled with the personality of a rude, cantankerous old man. At one point, she refers to a lab rat (which BollywoodNerd Ravi has nicknamed [[Film/ANewHope "New Hope"]]) as "Final Hope": Ravi responds that if he'd wanted the rat to have a depressing name, he'd have gone with [[Film/ThePhantomMenace "Phantom Menace"]].

** When Hester is trying to convince Chanel that Ouija boards work, she asks if she saw "[[Film/{{Ouija}} the movie]]", to which Chanel responds, "Of course not, no one did."
** After [[spoiler: Pete]] outs himself as an accomplice of the Red Devil killers, he tries to justify it with a bit of HeWhoFightsMonsters. Grace isn't impressed.
-->'''Grace''': You're quoting ''Nietzsche''? You're already a ''murderer'', [[spoiler: Pete]]. You don't have to be a ''douche'' as well!

** The Series 3 finale also features Martha suggesting the Master could be the Doctor's brother, only for the Doctor to shoot down the idea as silly and suggest she's been "watching too much television". This could be a Take That at the proposed storylines for a potential US Doctor Who series from the early 1990s in which the Master would have been the Doctor's "evil brother".

'''Mork''': He looks like he does his hair with a cuisinart! Man, he's got a road map for eyes! You could pack a family in that nose, man! I mean, look at that mouth, "Duuurrr...". They had to airbrush his entire face, are you kidding? I mean, I'm bright and cheery and this guy's got big problems!
