[[quoteright:350:[[Series/TheCosbyShow http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_the-cosby-show_7626.jpg]]]]

A show title trope.

Basically, it's a TV show about some character, or with some actor. And it's called "The INSERT NAME HERE show".

If this happens with characters, it's usually either CharacterTitle or TheFullNameAdventures.

If a show takes this format with a descriptor, rather than a name, between "The" and "Show", it's TheTalkShowWithHostName.
