When it's the exact opposite, you've got a bad case of RealityIsUnrealistic. If people fall for it, it's because TVNeverLies or, in the case of media conventions that audiences come to take for granted, TheCoconutEffect.

Once in a while, a TV show does something that actually happens in RealLife. Don't worry, it never lasts, and they soon slip back into their [[StrictlyFormula old habits]]. Rarely, other shows pick up on this, and you then get a recurring {{trope}} that accurately reflects the real world. Listed below, for your convenience, are some examples of those.
TheDarkSide of this trope (and too often the only side) occurs in RippedFromTheHeadlines.

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, [[Administrivia/PeopleSitOnChairs 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|s}} [[Administrivia/TheContentPolicyAndThe5PCircuit and while true, descriptions would be too upsetting, not Family-Friendly,]] [[Administrivia/ConversationInTheMainPage or too gossipy]].
