A TakeThat, like one would do to a [[DuelingShows Dueling Show]], directed at another show on the same network.

If it's directed at ''the network itself'', it's BitingTheHandHumor.

[[folder: BBC ]]

* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''
** Episode 28 ends with everyone being hustled off the set to make way for ''Horse of the Year Show''.
** The abortive "Conjuring Today" sketch is followed by a man complaining about TV showing "rubbish like that and ''Horse of the Year Show''."
* The three stars of ''Series/TheGoodies'' - Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, and Bill Oddie - were Cambridge contemporaries of [[Creator/MontyPython Pythons]] Graham Chapman, John Cleese, and Eric Idle (all six wrote for and/or starred in the 1964-73 radio series ''Radio/ImSorryIllReadThatAgain''), while Terry Jones and Michael Palin starred with Garden and Oddie in the (now wiped) 1967 sketch series ''Twice a Fortnight''. As such, the Goodies included several friendly digs at the Pythons when the two series aired together on [[Creator/TheBBC BBC television]] in the early 1970s.[[note]] The Pythons, meanwhile, more or less ignored ''Series/TheGoodies''.[[/note]]
** In "Invasion of the Moon Creatures", Graeme switches on the TV and sees the ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' opening titles, then immediately switches off because he's missed the Moira Anderson programme he wanted to see.
** At the end of ''Series/TheGoodies and the Beanstalk'', Creator/JohnCleese makes a CameoAppearance as a genie; Tim tells him to push off, at which point he shouts "Kids' programme!" and vanishes. And then Tim traps him in his lamp (a tin of beans) and they all laugh.
** The Goodies' Star Safari Park in "Scatty Safari" includes four groaning Gumbies as an attraction, seen standing in the middle of the road accompanied by John Philip Sousa's "Liberty Bell" march (used as the theme to ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'') as Graeme angrily gestures to them to clear the road.
** In "Cunning Stunts", as Tim and Graeme try to recruit a replacement for the dismissed Bill, one applicant is a brass band (heard but not seen) who strike up the "Liberty Bell" march only to have the door slammed on them as Graeme grumbles, "Ruddy Band of the Coldstream Guards!"

* After ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' aired their episode "Cartoon Wars, Part I" in which they issued a TakeThat at ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', they were contacted by the writing staff of the other Fox animated comedies saying that they disliked ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' as well, leading to the LawyerFriendlyCameo with [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart Simpson]] joining Cartman in his quest to take ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' off the air in Part II.
