I was watching Bones yesterday and caught this small reference to the Hyperion Hotel from AtS which made me smile:

Have you guys found any other TV shows/movies that make Buffy or AtS references? Feel free to add them here! :)

On Supernatural the ghostfacers said "WWBD. What would Buffy do?" and "She's so much stronger than me." In a later episode a character called Dean by Buffy's name.

On Everwood a woman sees the dad on the show holding books for his daughter and asked "What do Mother Teresa and Buffy have in common?" He answers "Homework. Hero."

On Castle the investigators see a body in a cemetery with a stake in it and Castle says "It looks like Buffy came to the Big Apple."

On Xena Warrior Princess there is a play called Buffus the Bachae Slayer.

On Friends Ursula is in a porno called Buffay the Vampire Layer.

On Charmed the sisters are in a cemetery and ask "Where's Buffy when you need her?"

On Will & Grace Jack says "for the love of Buffy & Angel" instead of for the love of God. In another episode he brings up liking BtVS and asked who's decision it was to make Willow gay.

On The Big Bang Theory they mention BtVS several times. Sheldon brings up the comic continuations. Leonard tries to get Penny to watch the s1 dvds.

In Once upon a time, they had the "heroine" (though by this point in the show the writing had gone downhill) stab her evil lover through the chest with a sword in order to save the town. It was a blatant Buffy rip off.

Just because Disney hasn't bought rights to the show yet doesn't mean they won't use (or mock) it...I think about everyone can see this is taken from Buffy (changing the vampires into zombies, and reversing the genders of Buffy and Angel):

I think my fave refs are the ones in Gilmore Girls and Bones because they're so specific. Like, most of the references are just saying the words "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", so you don't have to have watched the show to get it. But mentioning the Hyperion or Spike & Drusilla? You need to have seen the shows to get those references, so they're more nods to the fandom whereas the others are just general pop culture references.

The episode of Criminal Minds that referenced the Buffyverse, my god. It was like a dozen references, character names as well as mentioning Sunnydale High & the Razorback mascot.

Wasn't Xander in criminal minds? Does Nicholas Brendon count as a Buffy reference? : )
