Weird Al Yankovic's, "Couch Potato"
The Lyrics:
There's Flintstones on the TV already
...Plus "Da Ali G Show"
And "Celebrity Mole"
...Larry King To "24" to "Law And Order" The Weather Channel's boring like "60 Minutes"'s ancient reporters
Next up on "E! True Hollywood Story"
The rise and decline of twelve actors named Corey......
And "King of Queens" jumped the shark the first minute
...I'll move right on to "8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenaged Daughter"
Then I bet I watch "The Bachelorette"
Followed by "Welcome Back, Kotter"
And "The Muppet Show" where they go 'Mahna Mahna'
...Never missed "Melrose Place" or "Lost In Space"
I've seen each "Amazing Race" and "Without A Trace"
But I only watched "Will And Grace" one time one day
...Oh, and "Fear Factor" I watched maybe a half hour
...Leech-covered grub-eatin' fools on "Survivor"
...And there's "Gilligan" and "SpongeBob", plus there's "MacGyver"
...Special all Pig-Latin episode of "Drew Carey"
... Wanna turn on "E.T." 'cause I'm a gossip freak
... Then we come back to "Are You Hot?"
I was planning on recording "The Sopranos" I forgot
These are the TV shows mentioned in Weird Al's parody of "Lose Yourself" by Eminem.

Weird Al Yankovic's, "Syndicated Inc."
The Lyrics:
My whole family loves "Three's Company"
......"MASH" and "All In The Family"
"The Munsters" and "Mayberry R.F.D...
Oprah Winfrey talks to me Every day at three...
Then soon it'll be "Wheel [of Fortune]" and "Jeopardy"...
...Think I'm losin' my sanity I'm addicted to Regis & Kathy Lee...
...Love "The Partridge Family"
And "Dynasty" And "Laverne & Shirley"
And "Hard Copy"...
All quoted items are TV shows, in one of many of Weird Al's "list" parodies about television.

Weird Al Yankovic's, "The Brady Bunch"
The Lyrics:
You can watch Mr. Rogers
You can watch Three's Company
And you can turn on Fame or The Nelywed Game
Or The Addams Family
I say, you can watch Barney Miller
And you can watch your MTV
...You can watch Johnny Carson
You can watch Phil Donahue
And you can use TV Guide to help you decide With capsulized review
Say, you can watch 60 Minutes
Even Captain Kangaroo
But there's only one set, so what ever you watch
Well, you know I gotta watch it too
Sung to Men Without Hats' "Safety Dance", these lyrics all reference various TV shows...and of course, the entire 2nd verse consists of "The Brady Bunch" theme song.
