* While most of ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' is improvised to begin with, the 100th episode had a notable incident where the electronically-synthesized bass rhythm [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWyXZRYUU50 suddenly speeds up in the middle of the song]], and [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity Ensued]]. They redid the game with the intention of throwing out the first take, but in the end, the second take was thrown out and the first take was used. It featured Creator/WayneBrady trying to spell out the subject's name "Howard" in rhythm, and he ended up spelling out H-O-R-W-A-R-D. Drew gave him a hard time about it, leading to Wayne responding "It's hard to spell at 210 beats per minute."

*** One of the best known is when Drew flubbed a line ''from a scripted card'', introducing "African Chant", and stated that "Africa is a country". Greg Proops, the fourth chair that episode, busted up and immediately corrected him that, "It's also a big ''continent'' if you're a geographer!." Drew [[NeverLiveItDown didn't live it down]] for the rest of the show.

** An audience member got one: When asked for a pair of unlikely roommates, a member loudly yelled out "[[Creator/BillCosby Cosby]] and [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]]." Drew liked it, but a producer nixes the idea from airing before the game starts. The rest of the episode has the performers made some none-too-subtle jabs at the producer, including Ryan's last line in the hoedown: "He should grow a mustache and move to Germany."

* ''Series/TheSiflAndOllyShow'' often had these moments whenever one of the duo would laugh. These moments were usually caused by Liam Lynch. An example can be seen in the music video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33JsxFNgllY&fmt=18 "Baby For Gravy"]]. These were also very common in segments featuring the character Chester.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had a season one episode, "[[{{Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS1E21Symbiosis}} Symbiosis]]", where in one of the last scenes Tasha Yar is in the background. Blink and you'll miss it, she waves at the camera. This was the last episode filmed with Denise Crosby as a regular cast member. The next episode, "[[{{Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS1E22SkinOfEvil}} Skin of Evil]]", where the ''character'' leaves, was filmed before "Symbiosis".

* One of the most badass of all time: in the ''Series/BreakingBad'' episode [[Recap/BreakingBadS1E6CrazyHandfulOfNothin "Crazy Handful Of Nothin'"]], Raymond Cruz improvised [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome stubbing out a cigarette on his tongue]]. Creator/BryanCranston's reaction is quite genuine.

* When one of the {{pilot}}s for ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' was filmed, the puzzle board was originally intended to be mechanical and self-revealing, like the rebus board on the old ''{{Series/Concentration}}''. There wasn't enough time to finish building it, so the producers just gutted what they had and hired Susan Stafford to turn the letters manually. After the show got picked up, they kept the board as it was. Of course, the letter-turning position was later taken over by the iconic Vanna White. The board was enlarged a year before she took over, and changed to a set of touch-activated monitors in 1997 (which were converted to LCD screens in 2007).

* Many of Mork's lines on ''Series/MorkAndMindy'' were nothing but this. The writers would actually [[HarpoDoesSomethingFunny leave whole pages of the script blank and just let Robin Williams do what he wanted]].

* ''Series/{{Psych}}'' often includes ad libs. The most notable of which is the long-running gag of Shawn introducing Gus using absurd, fake names -- sometimes resulting in AwesomeMcCoolName or UnfortunateNames. The first use was a surprise ad lib by James Roday. Eventually, the names became written into the script.

** One episode was to just show Cliff making a meal, and Cosby turned it into an extended bit lampooning Julia Child.

* At least twice on ''{{Series/Highlander}}''. In 'Money No Object', Duncan and Amanda were supposed to kiss, but the actors' timing was off and they bumped heads. The episode was a comedy, though, and the mistake flowed well with the rest of the ep, so it was left in. Another was a season 2 episode ending where Adrian Paul and Stan Kirsch expected the director to cut the scene earlier than he did. They start laughing after a few moments, wondering what's wrong, and the cut finally came, but the unexpected part was left in.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'': A particularly interesting form of ad lib occurred in the third-season episode "[[{{Recap/BabylonFiveS03E02Convictions}} Convictions]]". There is a scene where G'Kar and Londo (who hate each other) are trapped in a lift car. The original script called for G'Kar to speak to Londo about his lack of sympathy for their situation in a cold and heartless tone. But for whatever reason, Andreas Katsulas (who plays G'Kar) delivered his lines in a completely different tone: that of ComedicSociopathy, laughing like a madman at times. It completely puzzled Creator/JMichaelStraczynski at the time, but once he realized what happened, he realized that Katsulas had outdone the script. Not only did he throw it in (a rare event indeed), but he remembers it as one of his favorite moments of the series.
* The ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "[[{{Recap/FireflyE04Shindig}} Shindig]]" called for Mal and Inara to dance, and for Mal to [[ICantDance suck at it]]. However, Creator/NathanFillion and Creator/MorenaBaccarin spent so much time practicing the scene that Fillion learned it quite well and couldn't convincingly play someone who couldn't dance. They left that take and dubbed in a line by Mal saying "This dance I think I actually know."

* In the ''Series/{{Castle}}'' episode "The Final Nail", Beckett interrogates a man with a thick Russian accent. During the interrogation, she ends up [[GotMeDoingIt mimicking his speech pattern, rolling the 'r' in "cry"]] before catching herself. Stana Katic does speak fluent Russian and her slip was purely unintentional but it added levity to the scene so they kept it in.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "[[{{Recap/StarTrekS2E1AmokTime}} Amok Time]]". After Captain Kirk apparently dies during a duel with Spock, Spock has an emotional reaction when he learns Kirk is alive. When he denies doing so, Dr. [=McCoy=] says "In a pig's eye!". According to the science fiction author Creator/TheodoreSturgeon, who wrote the script for "Amok Time", the line was ad-libbed by [=DeForest=] Kelly.
* On ''{{Series/Lost}}'', the character of Sawyer was supposed to be a slick, suit-wearing city conman. However, during his audition, Creator/JoshHolloway (who ended up with the part) forgot his line and so kicked a chair in frustration while swearing profusely. The producers liked the edge he gave, and so the character was rewritten to be a darker Southern grifter.

* In one episode of ''Series/{{Blackadder}} Goes Forth'', Blackadder mentions that only two of the following three universities - Oxford, Cambridge, and Hull - are truly great. Creator/StephenFry, who attended Cambridge while Creator/RowanAtkinson attended Oxford, made a completely improvised jab at his alma mater's rival by saying "Indeed! Oxford's a complete dump!", catching Atkinson off-guard.

* The pilot script for Creator/StevenMoffat's sitcom ''Joking Apart'' contained a typographical error that gave the character of Tracy the line "You're a silly". The actress delivered the line as written, and everyone realised that, since Tracy was very much TheDitz, it suited her perfectly. Not only was it kept in, it became her catchphrase.

* ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'': "Papa's Got A Brand New Excuse" is widely considered [[TearJerker the most emotionally moving in the entire series]] (for full effect [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmerFuzRNZ4 the scene is here]]). Creator/WillSmith's final line in it wasn't scripted - he had been channeling [[RealitySubtext childhood memories of friends who went through]] what the show's Will Smith does.

Creator/KrystenRitter then ad-libbed an extra remark of "Nice ears," to which Creator/CharlieCox immediately replied, "They're horns," without missing a beat.
* The cast of ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' adlib so many of their lines that they sometimes need to be reminded that they actually need to say at least the exposition for the scene.

** During a sketch in one episode hosted by Martin and Lewis, a prop towel dispenser fell open when JerryLewis yanked a towel from it. After several failed attempts to close it, Lewis broke character, walking off-stage and dragging the man responsible for the prop onto the set, and made him stand there, holding the cover of the dispenser in place for the rest of the sketch.
