** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' averts this. [[spoiler:During the mid-season, Poppy Pipopapo/Asuna Karino, the lead female, becomes a Kamen Rider, then, Nico Saiba later gets her Rider form as a Ride Player. This is the first time two females transform into Kamen Riders in the show itself (not counting movies, specials, etc.).]]

* The early entries of the [[Franchise/UltraSeries Ultraman franchise]] always had four or five male characters and one female character in the defense teams. Since these were made in the 60s and 70s, the ladies were typically BridgeBunnies.

* ''Series/{{Dexter}}'': While there are other female officers, none of them seem to be as highly ranked as Debra Morgan or Maria LaGuerta, and the latter seems to be the only woman in a position of power, save the woman who was brought in to try and undermine LaGuerta's authority. The latter caved under the pressure of her personal life.

* ''Series/TheDailyShow'' rarely has more than one female regular at a time, if that. Currently, the only female correspondents are regular Samantha Bee and the very irregularly recurring Kristen Schaal. The show's spotty record with women correspondents was {{lampshade|Hanging}}d when Kristen Schaal took over the show and declared Jon Stewart to be the new Senior Men's Correspondent: "Feel free to talk about men's issues. But don't expect to be on the show more than every four to twelve weeks or so." Creator/OliviaMunn has appeared multiple times, which may make her the third regular female correspondent. The show has since recruited Jessica Williams, so the situation is improving ''slightly''...
** When Trevor Noah took over, Jessica and Desi Lydic were the two regular female correspondents, but Jessica departed in June 2016, leaving Desi the sole regular female correspondent. While Michelle Wolf and Eliza Cossio are recurring contributors, it remains to be seen if they'll be upgraded to regulars.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SiliconValley'' was this in its first season, with Monica being the only female character of any significance. [[TruthInTelevision Somewhat justified]], as technology companies in Silicon Valley are often [[http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/11/24/valley-boys overwhelmingly male]]. The second season introduces Laurie Bream and Carla the engineer to balance out the cast a bit.

* ''Series/{{MASH}}'' averts the principle by having many female nurse characters on the cast, even if they aren't the focus of the episode. Gender issues related to the Smurfette Principle were explored in the show -- most notably when a male nurse is the victim of gender discrimination, having been made a private when all other (female) nurses were commissioned officers.
