Since they are technically truth, these tropes do not need to be [[JustifiedTrope justified]]. However, ViewersAreMorons, and so writers may actually throw in justifications.

Also, because something may be Truth In Television does not mean we necessarily want Real Life examples of it. If a trope is listed both here and on Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease that means that while its occurrence is definitely possible or even common in Real Life, listing the examples would either be too exhaustive, pointless because in real life it is just a meaningless event with no relevance, [[FlameBait too controversial]] because Real Life is subjective, or too NSFW because it is a sex trope and while true, descriptions would be too upsetting/not Family-Friendly/gossipy.

A good example would be pretty much any trope related to religion or its practice: for example, the ApocalypseCult and ScamReligion are both unfortunately Truth In Television, yet it's often subjective (e.g. people thinking all religions are scams, or all religions but their own are), and even in the cases where it's objectively proven (e.g. the group committed mass suicide with notes about an apocalypse, or arrests/litigation uncovered objective fraud) leveling the accusation is ''highly'' insulting.

There's a SlidingScale of Truth In Television frequency. In one end, the amount of times the said trope is Truth In Television can be counted with fingers of one hand (for example, AirVentPassageway). On the other end of the scale, these tropes happen very frequently in Real Life (like BerserkButton).

And that's pretty much how television works. So please, before adding anything to the list below or describing any existing tropes as Truth In Television, think for a moment: is or was this used in TV kinda like it really happened? Or is there maybe kind of a lot of hyperbole on one side or the other of the equation to make it fit? If the answer to the first question is a definite yes..

For another such example, TheMentallyDisturbed - [[CaptainObvious mentally ill people do exist]] in Real Life and therefore the trope belongs on this index. That said, real life mental illness (at least once you include the milder illnesses and degrees of it) is so common that having a list of mentally ill people would overwhelm the wiki, and some people would find being listed as examples of mental illness or instability very insulting. Another example would be pretty much any trope related to religion or its practice: for example, the ApocalypseCult and ScamReligion are both unfortunately Truth In Television, yet it's often subjective (e.g. people thinking all religions are scams, or all religions but their own are), and even in the cases where it's objectively proven (e.g. the group committed mass suicide with notes about an apocalypse, or arrests/litigation uncovered objective fraud) leveling the accusation is ''highly'' insulting.
