Advertisements It could just be the programs I watch (or maybe it does show up on those I don't watch?), but rarely, if ever, do I notice references to television shows within television shows. I was watching the DVDs of last season's Castle, and in one episode Castle's mother is talking about the acting resume of Castle's first ex-wife and says, "And does she honestly think that she's just gonna show up with a reel of what, According to Jim guest spots, and push some real actor aside?" Apart from news and some 'ripped from the headlines' references to real non-fiction television programs (and Old Christine's addiction to American Idol), I see very little, if any, references to TV shows ON TV shows. Am I just missing such references, or are they really that scarce? And I giuess I'm thinking along the lines of scripted programming that doesn't exist outside of the 'television universe' itself. Can you tell I'm kind of bored this afternoon??? Letting the recording of the Twins game get far enough along to start watching and FF through commercials!
