'''''The Show''''' is [[Homestar Runner]]'s supposed "game and political talk" show.
+
'''''The Show''''' is the set where [[Homestar Runner]] holds his supposed "game and political talk" show.
-
''The Show'' has many similarities to real game shows. The set is modeled much after those designed in the 1970s. In particular, the rounded rectangles, chasing lights, and orange shag carpet featured in the background suggest a reference to the ''[[Wikipedia:Match Game|Match Game]]'' prior to 1978. Homestar's mic is also similar to [[Wikipedia:Gene Rayburn|Gene Rayburn]]'s mic from the ''[[wikipedia:The Match Game|Match Game]]'' and [[Wikipedia:Bob Barker|Bob Barker]]'s original mic from ''[[Wikipedia:The Price Is Right|The Price Is Right]]''. The game [[Pom Pom]] and [[The Poopsmith]] are playing in The Show's debut, [[the show]], bears resemblance to ''[[Wikipedia:Hollywood Squares|Hollywood Squares]]'', a popular game show originally airing in the late '60s.

'''''The Show AM''''' debuted in "[[4 branches]]". Unlike ''The Show'', ''The Show AM'' is a morning/tabloid talk show (like ''[[Wikipedia:The View (U.S. TV series)|The View]]'' or ''[[Wikipedia:Maury (TV series)|Maury]]'') instead of a game show. It uses the same set and microphone as ''The Show''. The majority of ''The Show AM'''s audience is female, and the discussions range from fashion makeovers using simple items around the house (such as [[mustard]]) to angry confrontations among people in dysfunctional relationships.

This also relates it again to Match Game by referencing the Match Game PM which aired later than the normal Match Game and allowed for less censorship.

Its title alludes to ''Match Game PM'', a syndicated spin-off of ''Match Game'' that aired weekly during a nighttime time slot (by contrast to its daytime version, which aired daily on CBS).

'''''The Punkin Show''''', first seen in the similarly titled [[Punkin Show]] toon, features Homestar judging various fan-submitted pumpkins with the help of his Ding Board. Paint daubs appear to be strictly prohibited, perhaps due to The Punkin Show's sponsorship by the Council Against Paint Daubs. Other promoters include [[Bubs' Concession Stand]], Scary Bubs' Concession Stand, and the [[Homestar Jr.]] burger.
