* TheOtherDarrin: Van's parents were recast after their first appearance. The second actor to play Van's father (who ''[[Series/TheGeorgeLopezShow George Lopez]]'' fans [[HeyItsThatGuy would recognize as Mel Powers]]) looked younger and less intimidating.

* HideYourPregnancy: Barbra Jean had gained a noticable amount of weight in season 5 due to the fact that Melissa Peterman was pregnant at the time, and her weight gain was made into a plot point in the episode, "Hide Your Cake."

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Certain episodes make it pretty clear it was made during the TurnOfTheMillennium. Not only do the characters occasionally refer to what year it is, Bush is mentioned to be president at the time, one of the major characters during the first couple of seasons gets a lot praise from LaughTrack audience because she was on ''Series/AmericanIdol'', and game system such as the ''UsefulNotes/GameCube'', ''UsefulNotes/GameBoy'', ''UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance'', and ''UsefulNotes/{{Xbox}}'' get mentioned semi-frequently. (Though oddly there's no mention of the ''UsefulNotes/PlayStation2''. Apparently Reba's not a Sony fan...)

* YouLookFamiliar: The minor character who was MistakenForGay by Van and a sales clerk in a jewelry store are played by the same guy. In fact, they probably are the same character. In the episode "For Sale, Cheap," where Van mistakes the man (Terry) for being gay (and vice-versa), Terry explains that he runs a jewelery store along with his wife and another business partner. In fact, his previous reference to him as his "partner" is one of the reasons why he was MistakenForGay in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* ChannelHop: From Creator/TheWB (Seasons 1-5) to Creator/TheCW (Season 6). An odd example, as the latter network is a direct successor to the former.

** To the same extent, Scarlett Pomers is also a good musician, but her band is mostly offscreen, and most of the time she's seen doing something musical, she's just strumming her guitar and making snarking comments

* CelebrityStar / StuntCasting: Done twice:
** Once with Dolly Parton and the other time with Kelly Clarkson. Both also appear as [[SpecialGuest special guests]].
** Overlapping with CastingGag. Twice during the show, Cheyenne and Van's marriage was tested by another woman. The first time was Kate, a business associate of Van's that Cheyenne was insanely jealous of. The second was a woman named Bridgit, who was a former classmate of theirs (and enemy of Cheyenne) who made a pass at Van to torment Cheyenne. Both characters were played by Creator/SarahShahi, who is now Steve Howey's wife (although they were only dating/engaged at the time.)



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Lifetime was planning to produce a spinoff series that focused on Van and Cheyenne. However, Steve Howey and [=JoAnna=] Garcia were unable to reprise their roles due to being cast to different series.

* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine: By the time Kelly Clarkson guest-starred on the show, she had already forged a great friendship with McEntire, as the former had requested to sing with the latter on the ''AmericanIdol'' Season 1 finale, and following Clarkson's win on that show, the two toured/sang together frequently. Also becomes a retroactive case of RealLifeRelative, as Clarkson would go on to marry Reba's son-in-law in 2013.

* ActorAllusion: in the series finale, Reba grumps, "Why couldn't I be DollyParton??" [[RebaMcEntire Reba [=McEntire=]]], of course, is one of CountryMusic's biggest stars and is also an actress - exactly like Dolly Parton.

* TheCastShowoff: Surprisingly averted for a sitcom based around one of country music's most famous stars - Reba did sing, but it was rarely a big production. (On the other hand, she did sing [[DoItYourselfThemeTune the theme song]] and some of the soundtrack.) Scarlet Pomers is also a decent musician but her band is mostly offscreen, and the time she's seen doing something musical, she's just strumming her guitar and making snarking comments
