  • The Simpsons: In a Season 30 episode entitled 'Krusty the Clown,' Homer reviews TV shows for Lisa's school newspaper. His reviews are so brutally honest that he's recruited by an official agency. The CEO is telling him that none of the shows he always hears about (namely shows on the USA network) actually exist, they just have their reviewers pump out great reviews of nonexistent shows. Behind him is a screen with the names of TV shows that don't actually exist scrolling – one of them is BoJack Horseman. In another episode, Homer is tempted to binge-watch a Stranger Things expy without Marge. He then suddenly sees Marge on the TV telling him not to watch it without her. When he switches programs, he sees Marge as BoJack, telling him he can watch this program instead. But Homer refuses, since it's "too depressing"
