Shows/Movies that Ripped off from others

Yeah, yeah. S.F.W if they're popular, "groundbreaking" shows. These are unoriginal shows made by unoriginal people. I'm not talking about remakes, or shows that were inspired by other shows or pay homage to them. I mean the shows that are basically backbiting off of an original concept, yet in some cases, gain more popularity for it or even ridicule the show that inspired their undeserving success. Whatever.
