- So You Think You Can Dance.
- What's My Line (Most of the CBS episodes)
- Most early US Variety Shows, such as The Ed Sullivan Show.

- Most sports events.
- The 40th Anniversary episode of Coronation Street
- The remake of The Quatermass Experiment
- WWE Monday Night Raw and WCW Monday Nitro
- Late night talk shows (The Tonight Show et al) are generally broadcast live-to-tape; i.e., the show is recorded earlier in the day than its actual air time, but is brought to air without subsequent editing.
