Moved this exampkes over for clarification:

  • Une grenade avec ša?, the inspiration of the show above, is essentially the same thing, Vietnam War themed, the Aesops stipped down and a dysfunctional cast.

It was, at some time, apparently directly below the show it refers to, but sorting by media put directly below Doogie Howser,MD. Which makes "the show above" not only unhelpful, but actively confusing.

Can someone figure out what it's talking about and rewrite it so that it's is a useful example, then replace it on the main page?

Is this trope increasingly disconnected from reality? I haven't seen teenagers working in most fast food places for at least 10 years because they can hire immigrants for the same price, with less concern over other commitments in the way of scheduling.

It certainly does seem to be the case these days. According to this, the average age of a fast food worker (at least in the U.S.) is 29 years old; with only 30% of fast food workers being under the age of 20. Of the ones who aren't teenagers, 31% have at least some college education and roughly 36% are raising at least one child.

Do we have a trope for the TGI Friday/Applebees style restaurant? Its shown up enough in fiction and its has at least some distinctions from the "Burger Fool" type restaurant.

I'd say this trope applies to those restaurants as well. You still have a food franchise hiring young people to wear silly uniforms, work for low pay, and do embarassing things (singing a variant of the "Happy Birthday" song, for instance). Many of these places even have drive-throughs now.
