Similar to the Show. 5 people, 2 links.

Is this even a thing? Most of the examples seem to be one-shots that would be impossible to verify.

This is my signature

This sounds like a very interesting phenomenon to me. Can anyone verify any of these?
Looks like a trope to me.
Rhymes with "Protracted."
Me, too.
Seems interesting and worth noting. Bad title though.
This is quite fascinating. I was not aware of this phenomenon. This is definitely worth noting.

This needs a new name though. Is there an existing term for this practice?

Looks like a thing to me, too. I'm neutral on the name—is there actually enough misuse or underuse to justify a rename? The lack of wicks could be fixed by cross-wicking. And it may not be common enough for us to call what we have underuse.
Speaking words of fandom: let it squee, let it squee.

Crowner, meet thread.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Definitively a trope but in need of a better name, but except for Show Resembling Ad I can't quite find a better name for it.

Bumping for votes.

Calling crowner.
Ooooohkay, I don't much like these titles, and well, I don't think they'll help much. So let's brainstorm.

How about Ad-Show Parallel?
After two months of non-voting, I will have to call this as no consensus. 5 votes simply aren't enough, and it's debatable whether tha name is the problem.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Similar To The Show

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
