* ''The 5 Mrs. Buchanans'' : In the episode ''"Heart of the Matter?"'' Roy agrees not to play in an alumni football game because his wife, Alex, believes he will get hurt. When Mother Buchanan (the family's domineering matriarch) finds out, she is furious. She insists that Roy play in the game to uphold the Buchanan family tradition. When Roy mentions that Alex doesn't want him to, Mother Buchanan tells him, ''"Roy Buchanan, I did not raise you to be dictated to by some overbearing woman."''
* ''Series/ThirtyRock'' has one in its signature meta-joke style, where Liz and Jack are discussing ''America's Kidz Got Singing'', a singing competition show NBC is airing:
-->'''Jack:''' "Kidz" is a hit the whole family can watch together, not your usual sitcom crap full of gratuitous vulgarity and pratfalls.\\
(''man in the background slips and falls'')\\
'''Man:''' Ohh, my penis!
** Another episode has Liz writing a TV movie Jack is producing, which ends with this exchange:
-->'''Liz:''' Hey, when this movie airs, can my name be the first credit that comes up at the end?\\
'''Jack:''' This is a group process Lemon, don't be an egomaniac.\\
(''camera pans to a TV that says "Executive Producer Lorne Michaels"'')

* Siegfried from ''Series/AllCreaturesGreatAndSmall'' has a bad habit of blaming his mistakes on other people, as well as criticizing them for faults he also possesses. And he does it so sanctimoniously.
-->'''James''': You know the one thing I can't stand about your brother, Tris? It's when he gets patient with you. He gets this saintly look on his face and you know that any moment now he's going to forgive you. For something ''he's'' just done.
* Ms. Hushbaum, the Loud Librarian from ''Series/AllThat''?
* On ''Series/{{Amen}}'', after Reverend Gregory has fainted, effectively ending his and Thelma's wedding. Thelma is freaking out, shaking him and demanding that he wake up.
--> '''Deacon Frye''': "Thelma, calm down! I know you're disappointed, but we have to call off the wedding! So what if I'm out $10,000. ''$10,000!'' (Grabs Reuben and starts shaking him the same way Thelma was) Wake up! Wake up! How could you do this to me!"
--> (Minister grabs the Deacon)
--> '''Minister:''' "Ernest, pull yourself together man! Money isn't everything!"
--> '''Deacon:''' "I'm glad to hear you say that, because if there's no wedding, you don't get paid!"
--> '''Minister:''' (grabs Reuben and starts shaking him) "Wake up! Wake up!"
* ''Series/{{Angel}}''. A RunningGag with Doyle's character.
-->'''Doyle''': It's not all about fighting and gadgets and such. It's about reaching out to people, showing them that there's love and hope still left in the world....
--> '''Homeless Woman''': (interrupting) Hey, spare change?
--> '''Doyle''': Get a job, you lazy sow!
* ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' is the king of this. Among countless other examples:
-->'''Michael''': Some people are just impossible to have a conversation with.
-->'''Lucille''': If that's a veiled attempt to insult me, I didn't hear it, and I won't respond to it.
** The examples from this show could fit a whole page.

[[folder:B]]
* In the ''Series/BabylonFive'' episode "The Geometry of Shadows", technomage Elric refutes Londo's false denial about pestering Elric for an audience by producing a recording of Vir delivering just such a request. Londo complains, "Recording a conversation -- a very low thing to do." as the screen cuts to a shot of the hidden camera Londo had just planted in Sheridan's office.
** Elric calls him on it. Explosively.
* 60's ''Series/{{Batman}}'', having just encountered The Green Hornet in a window
-->'''Robin''' (whispering): Gosh Batman, what do they dress like that for?

* Done rather [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesomely]] by ''Sheldon'' of all people, during ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' episode "The Nerdvanna Annihilation". After Penny derides Leonard for his toy collection, driving him into such a depression that he gives them all away, Sheldon [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFaDGg1ySgE gives her]] a well-deserved TheReasonYouSuckSpeech:
-->'''Penny''': What the hell's going on?
-->'''Sheldon''': (With genuine anger) You ''hypocrite''!
-->'''Penny''': What?
-->'''Sheldon''': Little Miss "grown-ups don't play with toys"! If I went into that apartment right now, would I not find Toys/BeanieBabies? Are you not an accumulator of Franchise/{{Care Bears}} and Franchise/{{My Little Pon|y}}ies? And who is that Japanese feline frolicking on your shorts? Hello, HelloKitty!
** Of course, [[InsufferableGenius Sheldon]] is most often on the "hypocrite" side of these:
--->*someone knocks on the door*
--->'''Leonard''': Want to get that?
--->'''Sheldon''': Not particularly.
--->'''Leonard''': Could you get that?
--->'''Sheldon''': I suppose I could, if I were asked.
--->'''Leonard''': Would you please get that?
--->'''Sheldon''': Well, of course. *gets up to answer the door* Why do you have to make things so complicated?
** Penny: Oh look, they're doing that fake 'linked-arms drinking thing'. I totally taught him that!
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** In the episode "Earshot" Wesley points out that since Buffy can hear everyone's thoughts, it would take mental discipline to not broadcast their thoughts to Buffy. Within seconds, Wesley thinks about Cordelia in a highly inappropriate way. Buffy smirks at Wesley, and he excuses himself from the room in embarrassment.
** Also from Earshot is this:
---> '''Xander''': Hogan Martin thinks he's sooooo hot. Like we should all be awed by him 'cause he can put a ball in the net.
---> '''Hogan''': Hey, Xander.
---> '''Xander''': He said my name. He knows my name.
** In the MusicalEpisode "Once More With Feeling" Spike's song is all about how he wishes Buffy would get away from him as his unrequited feelings for her are tearing him up. When Buffy flees at the end of the song, Spike calls out pitiably, "So, you're not staying then?"
** In "A New Man" Giles is turned into a demon, but declares that he won't start acting like a monster just because he looks like one. Then he sees Professor Walsh, who pissed him off earlier in the episode, and chases her down the street roaring loudly.
** Giles also comes out with the following in "Primeval":
---> Xander, just because this is never going to work there's no need to be negative.
** When the mayor is showing Faith around her apartment:
--->'''Faith''': Thanks, Sugar Daddy.
--->'''Mayor Wilkins''': Now, Faith, I don't find that sort of thing amusing. I'm a family man. Now, let's kill your little friend.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:C]]
* In ''Series/{{Castle}}'', this trope is used often and well, typically with ''some'' other character around to lampshade it.
** Martha can often be relied upon to provide humour of this nature; such as, the night before one of Rick's book launches:
-->'''Martha''': ''[chuckling]'' You really are something, you know? You always think everything's about you. ''[Hands him a stack of leaflets]]'' Here.
-->'''Castle''': What are these?
-->'''Martha''': Oh, they're fliers for my play. I thought you could hand them out when you were signing books tomorrow.
** In a later episode, both Castle and Beckett have gone out on separate dates and ended up at the same very exclusive restaurant. They spent the entire time preoccupied with the BodyOfTheWeek and had a tendency to slip away from their supposed dates to confer about the case with each other. Finally, they bailed entirely and the dates hooked up with one another. At the end of the episode, as Castle and Beckett go out to grab a bite to eat at a burger joint, they swap notes on their dates earlier that evening, remarking that they seemed 'boring' and 'a little self-absorbed':
---> '''Castle''': Some people just don't know how to behave on a date.
---> '''Beckett''': ''Especially'' on a first date.
** Martha walks in on Castle and Alexis playing poker.
--->'''Martha''': I am shocked that there is gambling in this house! Deal me in.
*** Note that this is also a ShoutOut to ''Film/{{Casablanca}}''.
*** Similarly, in the episode "Double Down", Beckett is upset to learn that Castle made a bet that he and Beckett could solve their case before Ryan and Esposito could solve theirs. After getting a lead on their case, Beckett tells Castle, "One hundred dollars on us."
** In another episode, Castle tries to talk to Alexis, who just interrupted movie night with her dad because her boyfriend wants to talk to her: "I mean, think about what kind of signal you're sending if you're the one always rearranging your schedule at the other one's every beck and call. I mean, if you just drop everything the very moment that..." At which point Beckett calls him, and he drops everything.
** In "The Squab and the Quail", a billionaire playboy is threatened with murder. He pulls strings with the commissioner to get Beckett assigned as his bodyguard rather than a uniformed police officer. Castle complains, "I just can't believe that the department is forcing her to hang around with some womanizing rich guy against her will!" Ryan and Esposito share a look; this is the entire premise of the series, and ''Castle'' is usually the womanizing rich guy in question.
* One of the most popular types of joke on the sitcom ''Series/{{Cheers}}''. Examples:
-->'''Norm''': Woody you can't go sneaking out nights on someone you love! Woody you have to believe that truth-"
-->'''Carla''': "Norm your wife Vera's on the phone!"
-->'''Norm''': "I'm not here.(back to Woody)- and honesty are the cornerstones of a relationship!"
** In another episode the guys see recurring FrenchJerk Henri walk into the bar:
--->'''Barfly 1''': Hey isn't that that French guy who's trying to steal Woody's girlfriend?
--->'''Cliff''': Yeah, what a slimebag.
--->'''Barfly 2''': The man's got the morals of a snake.
--->'''Norm''': Can't believe he'd show his face in here.
--->'''Henri''': (smiles and waves) Hello fellows!
--->'''Norm and the others''': (very cheerfully) Hey Henri! How you doin'?
* In an episode of ''Series/TheColbertReport'', Creator/StephenColbert briefly shared a story about how he once found one of his teenage staff members out back smoking with his friends while wearing an anti-smoking T-shirt. When questioned, he replied that he "thought it was funny."
** In another episode, Stephen, distraught over the loss of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, looks up the FiveStagesOfGrief. "Stage One... Denial. I've ''never'' had that."
** Frankly, Stephen Colbert's whole point of existence is HypocriticalHumor, ever since he was an anchor on ''Series/TheDailyShow'', which also frequently points out TruthInTelevision examples.
* ''Series/{{Community}}'': After Senor Chang has ordered the class to 'turn on' Britta, resulting in her being pelted with paper.
-->'''Britta:''' "Ow! Real mature." ''[She leaves]''\\
'''Senor Chang''': ''[Childishly]'' "That's right, we ''are'' mature! ''Too'' mature to sit in a class with a cheating lying poop-face!"\\
''[Britta has long since left the room]''
** Also when they're all panicking about Britta's psych test showing one of them is a potential murderer (turns out it's all of them except Abed):
---> '''Annie:''' Stay back psychos! Or I'll slit your throats and bathe in your blood!
** And probably the best example yet, the opening scene of season 3:
--->''[[IWantSong We're gonna have more fun and be less weird / Than the first two years combiiiiiiined!]]''
** In general, Britta and Shirley tend to generate this kind of humor most frequently (although the others certainly aren't immune to it), Britta because she's a SoapboxSadie GranolaGirl who's not nearly as committed to her causes as she likes others to think she is, and Shirley because she's TheFundamentalist who thinks that she's the group's conscience without quite realising her own flaws.
* On ''Series/CornerGas'', in which the following exchange occurs:
-->'''Oscar''': (''to Emma'') Your son is turning the gas station into a movie theatre!
-->'''Brent''': Keep in mind that Dad does have a tendency to overstate these things.
-->'''Oscar''': I've never overstated a single thing in the history of the planet!
** And:
--->'''Karen''': She seems quick to judge. I noticed that right away about her.
* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': A crime scene clean-up guy who's working on Nick and Warrick's scene has just got through pontificating about respect for the dead when they find an unexpected second body shoved in a video game cabinet. The first words out of his mouth? "Holy mackerel, bitch in a box!"

[[folder:D]]
* Private Frazer in ''Series/DadsArmy'' is quite fond of loudly expressing one bitterly-held and often contentious viewpoint, only to immediately switch to loudly expressing its exact opposite when it no longer becomes prudent to hold the first viewpoint.
* In ''Series/TheDailyShow'', Jon Stewart criticized the 2010 British election debates, saying: "Your moderator is named Alastair Stewart! What kind of last name is Stewart?"
** Bonus joke if you know Stewart [[StageNames wasn't Jon's original last name]].
** Also pointed out and derided via an "epithet ticker" when UsefulNotes/SarahPalin defended Dr. Laura Shlesinger's career (a hasty retirement after using the N-word) in a Website/{{Tw|itter}}eet - mere months after calling for Rahm Emanuel's job for using the word "retard"... which, incidentally, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny was up five points]].
*** Actually averted in Palin's case: Emanuel used 'retard' as an intentional and malicious insult, while Dr. Laura was quoting, and railing against, the numerous African-American rappers and pop culture icons who use the n-word prolifically. The caller [[JustIgnoreIt ignored her entire argument]], and took offense with her use of the n-word, even though [[ComicallyMissingThePoint it was okay for the original speaker to do so]].
*** Except it was the ''media'' controversy that focused on the N-Word - as ''Series/TheDailyShow'' pointed out, the rest of Dr. Laura's discussion with the caller (summarized as "Lighten up about racist jokes your husband's friends make or get out of the relationship") showed a huge amount of callousness. However, it still fits hypocritical humor since the pundits on the show were debating which one was worst while using said terms.
** Oh beautiful, oblivious hypocrisy! Jason Jones tries to convince a Democrat to stop pointing the finger, [[http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/wed-september-19-2012/finger-pointing-blame-game but the message won't get through.]]
* In the second episode of ''Series/{{Dexter}}'''s third season, Dexter is trying to track down the address of a recent murder victim; his searches take him to a sorority house during a party. When he asks two of the girl's sisters if they know her, they dismissively state that she's a "total ho bag". Then they ask Dexter if he's got any drugs. "We put out."
* ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'': In the episode "Driver's License", Drake and Josh talk about they being now mature, just before fighting over the "purple controller" and tackle each other down.
* Mimi from ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'' constantly makes fun of Drew's weight, calling him names like 'pig', despite the fact that she's noticably bigger than he is.
* Sally on ''Series/DropTheDeadDonkey'' is often guilty of this, to the point where her colleagues made a montage of her saying "I'm not one to complain, but..."
** And she responded to this by turning to George and saying...
** In another episode, Helen finally tells her mother she's gay. Her mother responds that she knows, and it's probably hereditary because she had some same-sex relationships herself. Helen spends the rest of the episode outraged that her mother has been keeping this from her for years.

[[folder:F]]
* ''The Ferguson Theory'' (a BBC Scotland sketch show starring Creator/CraigFerguson before he moved to the US) had a sketch in which a character criticised evidence of racism in the British government, before concluding "But what do you expect from the bloody English?"
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': [[DeadpanSnarker Wash]] pulls one of these off early in "Bushwhacked''.
-->'''Zoe:''' Proximity alert. Must be coming up on something.
-->'''Wash:''' Oh my god. What can it be? We're doomed! WHO'S FLYING THIS THING?
-->[[{{Beat}} *beat*]]
-->'''Wash:''' Oh. Right. That'd be me.
* In his debut episode of ''Series/TheFlash'', the Trickster is about to chainsaw a woman in half in front of an "audience" of mannequins.
-->'''Megan Lockhart''': Go to hell!
-->'''Trickster''': Watch your language--this is a family show!
-->''(The Flash runs in and pushes her out of the way at superspeed)''
-->'''Trickster''': ... the hell are ''you''?
* The ''Cheers'' SpinOff ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' also uses this a lot.
-->'''Roz''': Frasier's a good guy, he's smart, he's sweet, and way too good for you. Why don't you just leave, nobody here likes you anyway.\\
'''Julia''': Frasier seems to.\\
'''Roz''': Well he's an idiot.
** In the ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' episode where the ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' regulars show up, the lazy bar-fly Norm hits it off with Marty. When time comes for them to part company, Marty invites Norm to catch up if ever Norm's in Seattle:
---> '''Marty''': It's only six hours flying time from Boston to Seattle.
--->'''Norm''': Six hours...you know sittin' there in one place, never movin'. That's, that's just not me, you know?
** There's also a bit where it looks like Frasier is going to be compelled to tell the truth about Niles' feelings for Daphne at Niles' divorce deposition, thus ruining his chance of getting anything in the settlement ''and'' exposing his feelings for Daphne. Martin urges him to just lie, but Frasier feels his ethics forbid this. After the resulting argument, Frasier storms out, and Martin sneers about how Frasier buckles under pressure, and how "some of us [i.e. him] can deal with a tough situation head on, and others just need an escape'... whilst he's pouring himself a stiff drink and Niles has retreated to his 'safe place' under the piano.
** From "Shrink Rap":
--->'''Frasier''': I am so tired of your exaggeration! You always make things sound 50,000 times worse than they really are!
** ''Frasier'' runs on this trope, in both it's one-liner and more subtle forms. The very premise of the show is a form of this trope — a brilliant psychiatrist who is always giving people advice on how to fix their problems, but [[TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes can't figure out his own neuroses or relationships to save his life]].
* In ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'', Daniel tells Kim he's "just trying to be rational" about why Lindsay's parents would disapprove of her. Kim does not appreciate it.
--> '''Kim''': Are you calling me irrational? Because I'll tear your head off, Daniel. I'll tear it off and throw it over that fence.

[[folder:G]]
* On ''Series/TheGeorgeLopezShow'', after Benny and George have argued with a racist:
-->'''Benny''': That's just like white people, taking one group and saying they're all the same!
* Paris from ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' was annoyed with the fact that she couldn't find a soup kitchen to volunteer in on Thanksgiving because they were all overflowing with volunteers. "Who are all these jackasses who volunteered anyway? They can't all be students like me. They're not all putting it on a college application. I get something out of it and these other people don't get a thing. Talk about selfish!"
* ''Series/GimmeABreak'': When Nell's sister, Loretta, got married, it was announced that their mother would move to California to live with Nell, something that Nell desperately DID NOT WANT. In one scene, Nell tried to talk Chief Kanisky out of letting her mother live with them, by asking him, ''"Do you know what it would be like to have some pushy, loud-mouthed, know-it-all black lady move into your house and take over?!"'' After a pause, the Chief replied, ''"Yeah."''
* The basic concept of Michelle in ''Grownups''; a nutritionist who constantly eats junk food.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:H]]
* On the 1970s-90s country music/comedy series ''HeeHaw'', the recurring ''Gossip Girls'' sketch started with the actresses claiming that they never spread gossip in the following lyrics: "Now, we're not ones to go 'round spreadin' rumors, Why, really we're just not the gossipy kind, No, you'll never hear one of us repeating gossip, So you'd better be sure and listen close the first time!"
* On an episode of ''Radio/HelloCheeky'', Denis addresses the camera.
-->'''Denis:''' Hi, fans. It's me again -- Mr. Lovable. ''(turns to other band members)'' Will you shut up when I'm talking?!
* ''Series/{{House}}'': When Greg House puts speed in Wilson's coffee to test if Wilson is on anti-depressants, Wilson is rather livid. Later in that episode comes the revelation that Wilson has been [[NotSoAboveItAll dosing House with anti-depressants]]. In fairness to Wilson, he may have actually been angry at House for deliberately putting him at risk of dangerous medication interactions- but ''that'' becomes HypocriticalHumor when he follows up his rant with "give me a Vicodin before I have a stroke."
** On multiple occasions, House has criticized someone for doing drugs immediately before popping a Vicodin pill.
* On ''Series/HomeImprovement'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzXiNhGHTic Wilson's reaction to Jill telling him that Tim is getting an honorary Ph.D.]] (Wilson had worked his butt off to earn his Ph.D. the normal way, and Jill was in the process of doing the same.)
-->'''Wilson:''' I've never been a proponent of the symbolic gesture, but Tim is your husband, and he is my neighbor. We should be happy.
-->'''Jill:''' ''(sigh)'' You're right.
-->''{{beat}}''
-->'''Wilson:''' ''A '''Ph.D.'''?! '''TIM'''?!''
* The FramingDevice of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is an older Ted telling his children how he met his current wife, and so far he's been telling this story for six seasons to his eternally bored looking kids. One of his stories has Ted finding out that he can't stand his new girlfriend anymore because she just won't shut up.
-->'''Ted''': So, kids, Kathy couldn't stop talking. Can you imagine how awful that is?
-->'''Kids''': ...
** In "Okay Awesome," after Lily tracks Marshall down to a club he ditched their boring wine-tasting party to go to, we get this conversation:
--->'''Lily''': He just left! In the middle of our own party! You don't ''do'' that.
--->'''Robin''': ...
--->'''Lily''': Unless, of course, you're chasing after somebody who's already done it, and then...and then I think it's okay. *trails off*
** In "Belly Full of Turkey," Robin mocks Ted by pointing out that America is the world's leader in handgun violence. However, Ted DoesntLikeGuns while Robin owns several of them, subscribes to ''Guns and Ammo'', and goes to the firing range when she needs to blow off steam. In addition, she's actually ''threatened people with guns'' at least twice that we've seen (Gael's friends and a pair of thieves who tried to steal her TV) and suggested that Marshall do the same when he's afraid his boss will fire him.
** Robin's therapist tells her he's moving to Alaska. Turns out he had to stop seeing her because he was attracted to her.
--->'''Robin:''' [offended] So you dumped me as a patient so you could ''ask me out''?
--->'''Therapist:''' I'm not asking you out!
--->'''Robin:''' [disappointed] You're not asking me out?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:I]]
* ''Series/ICarly'': Many of the episodes use this a lot. Each character even has at least one of these.
** While Gibby walks out of the studio:
--->'''Carly''': Poor kid. It must feel bad to love someone who doesn't love you back.
--->'''Freddie''': (turns to stare at Carly)
--->'''Carly''': Sorry.
** When the gang is cleaning up the mess of the police stakeout:
--->'''Sam''': Some people just have no manners. (throws an empty soda can on the floor for Freddie to pick up)
** After Spencer's high-powered sculpture destroyed their longest webcast World Record attempt:
--->'''Spencer''': Hey guys, don't make me look guilty, like it was all my fault.
--->'''Carly, Sam, Freddie''': (ALL stare at Spencer)
--->'''Spencer''': Oh yeah.
** When discussing the Dingo Channel:
--->'''Spencer''': Aw, I hate that channel! They always make adults look like buffoons!
--->'''Carly''': You forgot to wear pants.
--->'''Spencer''': Oh my God.
* In a recurring ''Series/InLivingColor'' skit, Kim Wayans played an inner city woman named Miss Benita Buttrel, who would often decry the gossip surrounding several figures in her neighborhood...and then proceed to bury them under rumor and slander in the ugliest way possible. Nearly every time she was finished talking about someone, she would then add on, "But I ain't one to gossip, ''so you didn't hear that from me''."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:J]]
* This was half of Maya's repertoire in ''Series/JustShootMe'', aside from [[SoapboxSadie shrill activism]]. Oddly enough, there were other times where they didn't seem to be playing it as a gag, she just was... hypocritical. (For instance, deriding Elliot for his nerdy looks back in high school.) In fact there were times where this seemed to be a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop, implying that others were being ''unreasonable'' in asking her to stop berating someone over their looks or social status, or for her to apologize for doing so.
** Jack was also prone to it, especially where Maya is concerned. He tries to make her break up with a much older boyfriend in one episode, despite being married to one of Maya's high school friends.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:L]]
* In ''LarkRiseToCandleford'', Dorcas Lane has a tendency to describe whatever vice / indulgence she's about to enjoy -- fine food, fine baths, clothes, etc -- as "my one weakness."
* Robbie is one of the most active people in ''LazyTown'' due to his schemes...despite said schemes revolving around making the tow's citizens lazy and unhealthy. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in one of the episodes where Sportacus points out how active the villain really is.
* ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'': While on a drug-related case with Sam, Gene admits that his brother was an addict and that he could never understand why. Sam mentions that addiction is usually a sign of something missing at home.
--> '''Gene''': Yeah, but me and 'im were brought up exactly the same. I'm not addicted. ''(Takes a drink from his hip-flask)''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:M]]
* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', Al spends many episodes insulting females for being unattractive despite the fact that he's just as unattractive.
* ''Series/{{MASH}}'', in its first couple of seasons, would often show [[StrawHypocrite Majors Burns and Houlihan]] spying on and expressing disgust at the sexual dalliances of the other characters... which would get the Majors so horny they'd immediately start fooling around themselves.
** In a lesser example from a later season, Hawkeye and B.J. start riffing on famous Shakespearean phrases ("Friends, Romans and Countrymen, lend me your ears, I promise to return them.") Winchester counters with a straight reading of the ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' line, "There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." Hawkeye replies, "Man, if there's one thing I hate it's someone who butchers Shakespeare."
** Another instance:
--->'''Klinger:''' It was all just a misunderstanding; I would never try to bribe an officer! ''(pause)'' Ten bucks to forget the whole thing.
** Another example:
--->'''Frank''': The way I see it, unless we each conform, unless we obey orders, unless we follow our leaders blindly, there is no possible way we can remain free.
** And another:
--->'''Charles''': I won it in a debate. "Should the U.S. permit more liberal immigration?" I, of course, took the negative. My family has had problems with immigrants ever since we came to America.
* On ''Series/McLeodsDaughters'', Claire chastises Jodie for believing that she's been cursed for tearing up a chain letter, saying that there is no justification for superstition. She immediately proceeds to knock a container of salt and throws it over her shoulder.
* ''Series/{{Monk}}'':
** In the episode "Mr. Monk and the Leper". When Monk overreacts to shaking hands with a leper (who turns out to have been a phony), Natalie has to talk him out of lighting his hand on fire, acting all calm and reasonable. Cut to later in the episode, when Natalie makes out with Dr. Aaron Polanski, an expert on leprosy, who knows the disease well because he reveals that he had the disease. She freaks out, drinking hot water directly out of her house faucet and telling Julie to fill a bathtub with Listerine. The next day, when Monk and Natalie go to Mandy Bronson's house to investigate, Monk is somewhat unsettled to see Natalie drinking a bottle of mouthwash:
-->'''Adrian Monk:''' Are you ''drinking'' that?\\
'''Natalie Teeger:''' ''[gulps]'' Mmm-hmm!\\
'''Adrian Monk:''' Where’s the woman who’s been lecturing me all week about compassion and tolerance?\\
'''Natalie Teeger:''' Okay, you know what? It’s not funny! You didn’t have your tongue down his throat!\\
'''Adrian Monk:''' Well I shook hands with one! That’s bad enough!\\
'''Natalie Teeger:''' Your leper wasn’t even a real leper! ''My'' leper was the real deal!\\
'''Adrian Monk:''' I thought he was real! That’s what counts. You know the old saying, “There is no heart so black as the black, black heart of the Phony Leper”?\\
'''Natalie Teeger:''' No! I never heard that one!
** Also, in "Mr. Monk and the Voodoo Curse," Randy cites his astrological sign - a Pisces - as the reason he isn't superstitious.
** In "Mr. Monk Gets Cabin Fever," Monk has witnessed a gang shooting and is in WitnessProtection under Agent Grooms. On their way to the safehouse, they stop at the general store to stock up on supplies, and Agent Grooms tells Monk, Natalie and Stottlemeyer to not do anything that could draw attention to themselves.....while he's wearing a very conspicuous three-piece suit. [[LampshadeHanging Natalie even lampshades it]].
* The number of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' sketches using HypocriticalHumor would probably fill a page all on its own.
--> Dear Sir, I object strongly to the letters on your programme. They are clearly not written by the general public and are merely included for a cheap laugh. Yours sincerely etc., William Knickers.
** "I! WOULD PUT A TAX! ON ALL PEOPLE! WHO'D STAND! IN WATER! [[LampshadeHanging WHOA!"]]
** This little gem from the Argument Clinic sketch.
-->'''Mr Barnard:''' Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
-->'''Man:''' Yes, but that's not just saying "No it isn't."
-->'''Mr. Barnard:''' Yes it is!
-->'''Man:''' No it isn't!
*** This one's a bit of a subversion though, as the man ''doesn't'' just say "No it isn't," - the moment the laughter dies down he gives an actual argument.
*** He only does this ''after'' he notices what he just said.
*** But then, the only reason he had time to stop and notice it instead of just pressing on with his argument was because he had to pause for laughter.
* This bit from ''Series/TheMuppetShow''. Rather than watch the show, StatlerAndWaldorf opt to watch television through a set installed in the box, and upon flipping through the channels, find...
-->'''Statler''': What is THAT?!
-->'''Waldorf''': Looks like two ancient old guys sitting in a theatre box watching television!
-->'''Statler''': That's crazy! [[WhoWouldWantToWatchUs No one would watch junk like that]]!
** On a ''Tales from the Vet'' section of ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' Dr. Van Neuter warns the guests not to overdo it on the eggnog at the Christmas party. HilarityEnsues when he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsBIjhBBPx8 doesn't follow his own advice...]]
** Another episode, in a Muppet Labs segment, had Dr Bunsen Honeydew describe his assistant Beaker as a "short stubbly person". Beaker is actually ''taller'' than Bunsen.
** And ''then'' there's Miss Piggy, who will tie Kermit into a knot for even looking at another woman in one episode, then go out of her way to hit on any male guest star in the next.

* Kate in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' complained about Tony's porn obsession but looked at porn sites herself off-work and moaned about sexual objectification of women just before finding a bunch of shirtless men being photographed highly attractive. We'll put the Wet T-Shirt contest in her college days as something that occurred when drunk.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:O]]
* Played straight in the ''Series/OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' episode "Little Problems". Del is asked to make a contribution for his younger brother's wedding, and doesn't want to pay out too much money. Once he realizes that the bride's father only means a contribution of ideas and opinions, he attempts to get out of his earlier suggestion of using the old pub for the reception and back to a country club. When Alan anxiously asks, "But surely you don't like all that type of thing, do you?", Del replies, "Oh, I hate it. I hate it, Alan. I mean, those sorts of people only do things for effect," as he is served a massive cocktail, complete with fruit and umbrellas.

[[folder:P]]
* ''PowerRangersSPD'' has this in the episode "Perspective", where Commander Cruger is asking the rangers to tell him about their most recent battle due to the satellite surveillance footage being disrupted. Red Ranger Jack goes first, corrupting the story with his own vanity. Blue Ranger Sky attempts to retell the story accurately, but makes the same mistake.
-->'''Jack''': Someone is a victim of their own imagination.
* ''Series/{{Psych}}'' gets about as hypocritical as is possible in the Season 4 pilot, when Shawn is discussing his powers with a [[ItMakesSenseInContext Canadian police officer]]:
-->'''Shawn''': You've seen ''Series/TheMentalist'', right?
-->'''Rob''': Yes.
-->'''Shawn''': It's like that.
-->'''Gus''': Except that guy's a fake.
-->'''Shawn''': Right. If I was a fake psychic, it would be eerily similar.
-->'''Gus''': Exactly the same.
-->'''Shawn''': [[TakeThat A virtual carbon copy.]]

[[folder:R]]
* More like humor based off of hypocrisy, but in ''Series/RedDwarf'', Rimmer finds out Lister is using illegal learning drugs to study for his Chef's Exam. Rimmer demands names, places, and dates. "Arnold Rimmer, his locker, this morning."
** In "Parallel Universe", the ''Red Dwarf'' crew wind up in a parallel universe where their counterparts are female. This episode contains a trifecta of hypocritical humour.
*** Lister is turned off by his female counterpart [[TheLadette drinking six pints of lager and belching the whole of "Yankee Doodle Dandy."]] Rimmer points out the irony of this situation, as Lister is a complete slob himself.
*** Rimmer is disgusted by his female counterpart groping him and making sexual advances on him. Earlier in the episode, Lister was chiding Rimmer on his chauvinistic sexual advances on various women.
*** Rimmer's opposite makes the aforementioned sexual advances on Rimmer. When she finds out that the two Listers got drunk enough to [[ScrewYourself get in bed together]], she questions why one would make love to oneself.
* In the April 14, 2000 episode of ''Radio/RoyalCanadianAirFarce'', Vera asks her friends at the donut shop if they got their Lotto 649 tickets for the week. Charlie gets upset and says that lotteries are a tax on the stupid, people have a better chance of getting hit by a bus than winning, and lotteries are for "lazy unmotivated people who don't want to do an honest day's work." Al asks how many tickets he bought, and Charlie replies, "The usual, six."
** In the March 31 2000 episode, John Morgan is on a commuter train and two of his fellow passengers start having loud conversations on their cell phones. He picks up an imaginary phone and starts having a pretend conversation about how he's "sitting in the middle of a couple of cell phone A-holes" and how obnoxious it is to talk on a cell phone in public. After the "cell phone A-holes" get up and leave, though, Morgan takes out an actual cell phone and makes a call of his own.

[[folder:S]]
* In ''Series/SamanthaWho'', Samantha is relating an incident to her ex boyfriend, breaking off to ask him to 'Please put down the baloney, I'm trying to tell you how I don't need attention from men anymore!'
* Music/TaylorSwift wrote a musical monologue when she hosted ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' (November 7, 2009). The song consists of her talking about stuff she likes, the [[{{Jerkass}} douchebags]] in her life, who she may or may not be dating now, but she ends each verse with "I'm not gonna talk about X in my monologue."
* Extremely common in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' episodes. E.g.: Elliot makes a crack about Dr Cox's god complex. Dr Cox claims he has no idea what she's talking about, only to demand a random extra kiss his ring. In another episode, JD complains about a former patient following him around like she has no other friends; immediately after Turk goes to see his wife and JD says "I'll go with you." "[[LampshadeHanging Of course]]."
* In the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' episode "The Jimmy", Jerry asked Kramer "Do you really feel the need to use a lot of obscenities at the dentist's office?" It's interesting because Jerry once used a [[Franchise/StarTrek colorful metaphor]] to describe how good his yogurt was.
** In another episode, George complains about being set up on a blind date with a bald woman. [[DontExplainTheJoke George is bald.]]
* The first episode of season 2 of ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' gives us this:
--> '''Mrs. Hudson''': ...Family is all we have in the end, Mycroft Holmes.
--> '''Mycroft''': Oh, shut up, Mrs. Hudson!
--> '''Sherlock and John''': ''[In unison, outraged]'' MYCROFT!
--> '''Mycroft''': Apologies.
--> '''Mrs. Hudson''': Thank you.
--> '''Sherlock''': ''[To Mrs. Hudson]'' Though do, in fact, shut up.
* ''Series/SixFeetUnder'': Bordering between this and NWordPrivileges:
-->'''Gabe''': ''(to a hipster that bumped into him)'' Faggot!
-->'''Claire''': Hey, shut up! My brother is a faggot.
* From ''Series/SlingsAndArrows'':
-->'''Anna''': I was asking about pot. You know, marijuana.\\
'''Maria''': I know what pot is. So, you assume I'm a pothead, as well as a lesbian? Because all stage managers are pot-smoking lesbians, right?\\
'''Anna''': No! \\
'''Maria''': Well, I'm sorry to disappoint 'cha, but... I'm all out. This process has been hard on my stash, and my guy's out of town 'till Tuesday. Sorry.
* In ''{{Smallville}}'', when Chloe notices minor earthquakes around town...
-->'''Chloe''': [[ManOfSteelWomanOfKleenex I thought you said you couldn't...]]
-->'''Lana''': [[LightningCanDoAnything Normally, we couldn't, but...]]
-->'''Clark''': You guys talk about this?!
-->'''Lana''': What? It's just [[PlatonicLifePartners Chloe]].
** Chloe is nice enough not to mention that Clark spent a sizable amount of time complaining to Chloe about his sex life in an earlier season.
* Done subtly and hilariously in one episode of ''Series/SpinCity''. Having invited a gangsta rapper to the mayor's office over the matter of his lyrics, Carter says, "And remember, no gangsta stereotypes!" The rapper arrives and reaches into his coat for a business card... and Carter screams "GUN!" and dives behind a desk. Later on, when the rapper reaches into his pocket for something else, Carter does it ''again''.
* ''Series/StargateSG1'' gives us a relatively subtle example with a Chinese ambassador attending a meeting at Stargate Command. During a recess, he disapproves of the US' secrecy concerning the Stargate, then says with absolutely ''no irony'', "The Chinese government does not believe in keeping secrets from its people." Nobody comments on that, save for a disbelieving glance from the Russian general standing right behind him.
* Possibly unintentional example: In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', Kirk is told "Your old titles mean nothing here, Captain."
** In "The Trouble With Tribbles", Spock remarks, "[The tribble's] trilling seems to have a tranquilizing effect on the human nervous system. Fortunately, of course, I am immune to its effect," while petting a tribble and acting particularly calm. Everyone turns to look to him and he surreptitiously puts it down.
* ''Series/StrangersWithCandy'': "There's only one thing I hate more than racists, and that's spics!"
* This exchange from the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode "Heaven and Hell":
-->'''Uriel (an angel):''' How dare you come in this room... [[FantasticRacism you pussing sore]].
-->'''Alastair (a demon):''' Namecalling. That hurt my feelings... [[TheFundamentalist you sanctimonious fanatical prick]].

[[folder:T]]
* From ''Series/TheThickOfIt'':
-->'''Malcolm''': Oh, and that's an incredibly homophobic headline you're running with, you massive poof.
* On ''Series/TopGear'', after their homebuilt electric car has received a scathing review from ''Autocar'' magazine, the three presenters complain that the critics were too hard on their vehicle and that it will hurt their sales... and what do people who review cars for a living know, anyway?

[[folder:V]]
* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'':
** In ''Wi-Fi in the Sky'', when Trina asks the dad to don't let his son kick her seat, but he doesn't care.
--->'''Trina''': Some people are so crude!
--->'''Tori''': [Picks up the trash Trina put on her table some moments ago] I know!
[[/folder]]

[[folder:W]]
* ''Series/TheWeirdAlShow'' episode 11, in reference to another in-universe show host parodying him:
-->'''[[Music/WeirdAlYankovic Al]]''': How awful! How heartless! How could anyone sink so low as to do a PARODY of another human being??
* ''Series/TheWestWing'' sometimes PlayedForLaughs the fact that much of the US population engages in this. At one point they quoted two opinion polls that demonstrated at least 14% of Americans think contributions to the UN are too high, and at the same time think it shouldn't be cut.
** This is actually very easily duplicated, and is not as much a matter of hypocrisy as it is the result of asking leading questions. It's TruthInTelevision, as many polls are designed to get certain results to be used as propaganda.
** Then there's the sixth season's Democratic convention negotiations.
-->'''Leo''': This is the week when pull this party together and show the American people we can lead with integrity and maturity. Okay, the speaking order. Rock, Paper, Scissors on three.
* From ''Series/WhatILikeAboutYou'':
--> '''Val:''' I can be spontaneous. Right now I'm going to come up with a list of spontaneous things to do. I'm gonna need some graph paper.
* One episode of ''Series/WillAndGrace'' has Jack develop an addiction to coffee while dating someone from a coffeehouse, and then ends up trying to squeeze coffee out of the used filters from a coffee-maker after said boyfriend quits. Karen then proceeds to lecture him about dealing with the problem... [[ImmuneToDrugs while washing down a pill with a martini]].
-->'''Karen''': Ok, ok, it's over. Now, listen to me. (gets out a pill) The first thing you have to do is admit that you have a problem. (swirls the pill in her martini) Because if you can't even recognize the signs... (drops the wet pill into her mouth) Then you are really in sorry shape. (washes down the pill)Oh, mmm! (to the martini glass) Why are you so good to me?
** Also, when discussing Karen dumping [[Series/ThirtyRock Jack Donaghy]]:
--->'''Karen''': Well, you know me. If there's one thing I cannot do, it is hurt another person's feelings.
--->'''Jack''': That is so true, Karen. You do have a kind heart.
--->'''Karen''': ''(pause)'' I'm sorry, honey. I don't what it is, but your faggy little voice is just going right through me today.
** And then when discussing the incompetent Middle Eastern woman Grace has hired:
--->'''Grace''': You know what? You're never going to understand. I mean, the fact is, I'm tolerant. And you are...well, maybe a little bit racist.
--->'''Karen''': How dare you call me a racist! A homophobe? Maybe. Distrustful of Spaniards? Who isn't? But nobody calls me a racist. And you can ask anyone I own.

* From ''Series/YesMinister'': "In politics you have to learn to say things with tact and finesse, you berk."

* Kathy Griffin, describing how disappointed her Catholic mother was with her Emmy award speech: "Kathleen, why'd ya have ta tell Jesus to suck it, gawddamnit? I can't even show my face at church, fer Christ's sake! Damn, Kathleen, don't be so rude!"
* As the late, great, Creator/GeorgeCarlin put it, "So I say live and let live. That's my motto: Live and let live. Anyone who can't go along with that, take 'em outside and shoot the motherfucker. It's a simple philosophy, but it's always worked in our family."
* One of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenny_Everett Kenny Everett's]] running characters was 'Mr Angry of Mayfair', a city gent who would usefully appear to complain about the filth on TV, only to reveal at the end that he was dressed in women's underwear.
* Movie critic Richard Roeper, jokingly. Watch out for the end of his The Greatest Movie Ever Sold [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BY7hhbl7v18 review]], right after saying "I mean, come on, some of us still have our integrity!"
* In the first time presenting a show on commericial television Andrew Denton pretends to ring up the head of the network to complain about how often the ad breaks are. He was formally on the Australian government-run ABC which has no ad breaks. We only hear his part of the conversion and it ends like this:
'''Andrew Denton''' They make how much money?
''' And we'll be back after these important messages'''
* In episode of the [[Made in Canada]] a.k.a. "The industry" Richard Strong tells the star of their most popular show to get hair replacement surgury in Mexico, where it's much cheaper. Cut to a report of him dying of post-operative infection "I begged him not to get those hair implants.".
