Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ItsGarryShandlingsShow'', being a highly meta take on the sitcom, naturally played with this concept more than once. For instance, the Season One finale has Red Buttons take Garry's place as protagonist, while Season Two's "Go Go Goldblum" has Garry juggling a dinner date with the neighbors with a party being thrown by Creator/JeffGoldblum.


* ''Series/{{Alice|1976}}'': Diner-owner Mel Sharples and his waitresses seemed to know several famous people. Guest included George Burns, Creator/TellySavalas, Jerry Reed, Dinah Shore, and Art Carney.

** Parodied, then a SubvertedTrope in which Coldplay's Chris Martin appeared on ShowWithinAShow ''When The Whistle Blows'' as himself, inexplicably playing a musical number in the factory. Of course, ''Series/{{Extras}}'' is itself known for including a different CelebrityStar each episode (so much so that the episodes are identified by which celebrity appears in them parodying themselves) so the whole sequence is almost certainly a deliberate self-parody.

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' featured numerous bands and musicians from season 2 onward, when Piper opened a nightclub and said bands were booked as guest performers. In the first instance, Leo arranged for Dishwalla to appear at the then-new club because their manager had signed a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with a demon]].

* ''Series/{{iCarly}}'' has done this over the years. With artists and bands such as The Plain White T's, Music/GoodCharlotte, David Archuleta, and Music/OneDirection. David Archuleta is the only one that did not sing, and Good Charlotte are the only ones that were not actually on the webshow, as they performed at an awards show that Carly and friends were nominated for an award. One Direction's episode in particular was promoted as a special episode and [[JustHereForGodzilla brought huge sales to their episode on iTunes]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'' had any number of musical acts appear at Peach Pit After Dark and Cathy Denis played the senior prom.


** Creator/ZendayaColeman and Creator/BellaThorne have had numerous songs appear on the show, and other cast members such as Caroline Sunshine, Adam Irigoyen and Kenton Duty also had songs of theirs played on the show. No mention of the artists who perform the songs are ever made, which brings in CelebrityParadox about someone that is their doppelganger being a singer. Roshon Fegan has rapped on the show and had a song or two of his appear in the show, but it wasn't his character's songs. Other celebs from the Creator/DisneyChannel include Music/ChinaAnneMcclain, Creator/OliviaHolt, Adam Hicks and Coco Jones.

* ''Series/TouchedByAnAngel'' did this in almost every episode, with guests ranging from Travis Tritt to Charlotte Church to Rosa Parks. Yes, Rosa Parks.

** Especially in "Getting Davy Jones," where the episode was ''entirely'' dedicated to helping Marcia get Davy Jones from TheMonkees to sing at her school's 8th grade prom. He makes a very memorable appearance near the end, and even reprised his role in ''[[TheFilmOfTheSeries The Brady Bunch Movie]]'' and in the stage show, ''The Real Live Brady Bunch.''

* ''Series/{{Atlanta}}: Interestingly enough this trope is ultimately averted in "Champagne Papi", where Van and her friends go to a New Year's Eve party hosted by Music/{{Drake}} at one of his mansions (and the episode is even titled after Drake's Instagram handle). In a more traditional comedy, Drake would GuestStar in this episode, however, [[spoiler: Van finds out he's not even there; he's supposedly on tour and it's implied that the house they're in might not even be his.]]
