The Eponymous Show

Go To

A show title trope. Basically, it's a TV show about some character, or with some actor. And it's called "The INSERT NAME HERE show".

If this happens with characters, it's usually either Character Title or The Full Name Adventures. If a show takes this format with a descriptor, rather than a name, between "The" and "Show", it's The Talk Show with Host Name.


Format aversions using Character Title that pull double duty due to The Danza:

If TV Tropes ever gets its own cable show, we hope it's presented by this guy.


Video Example(s):


Mary Tyler Moore Show Opening

Not only called the The Mary Tyler Moore Show, but her name is a design element in the titles.

How well does it match the trope?
