Not so much a modern show anymore, but still cool: School House Rock. This is from the song A Noun is a Person, Place or thing. Love it.

Oh, I put a dime in the drugstore record machine.
Oldies goldies started playing if you know what I mean.
I heard Chubby Checker, he was doin' the twist
And the Beatles and the Monkees, it goes like this!
I put a dime in the drugstore record machine.

Well every person you can know (The Beatles and the Monkees, Chubby Checker)
And every place that you can go (Like a neighborhood or a store)
And anything that you can show (Like a dime or a record machine)
You know they're nouns.

The Beatles are everywhere. They show up in the most unexpected places. Seriously. It's a phenomenon of unparalleled proportions!

Well,  all 4 Beatles were in 1 episode of Family Guy it's really funny but really mean at the same time

Brian the dog says:"Well, this is the biggest waste of time since Ringo's sonwriting"
then it flashes to the Beatles in the Studio

Its definetely on Youtube if you wanna see it and have a laugh but feel bad for good ol Ringo at the same time

Also, in one episode of Family Guy when they go to the South Stewie plays a Banjo solo and yells out "Ive got Blisters on my fingers!"

And on Forrest Gump they place John with him and makes Peace remarks to him about the Vietnam
Ill try to think of some more

Here it is...and it's not mean at all. it's funny:
  

have to give Paul credit for trying to encourage the little guy

actually I started a thread about this because I only saw it for the first time last night and thought it was hilarious: http://www.dmbeatles.com/forums/m-1210626854/

Here's a few, Sorry if they've been mentioned before.

Goldfinger: James Bond says ' My dear girl, there are some things that just aren't done, such as drinking Dom Perignon '53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That's just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs!'

The Blues Brothers: 'Who do you think we are the fu**ing Beatles or something?'.

Poltergeist: When the father is trying to make the mother feel better, he sings 'If I fell' to her.

In Apollo 13, when we see the daughter of one of the astronauts she's carrying 'Let It Be'.

Rain man: Raymond  and Charlie sing 'I saw her standing there' while in the bathroom.

'Because' is playing at the end of American Beauty.

And my favourite Beatles quote from 'Sliding Doors:
The character of James says this, 'Everyone is born knowing every single Beatles lyric. It's ingested into the fetus along with all that amniotic stuff.  In fact, they should be called "the Fetals'.

That 'Sliding Doors' quote is too funny!

You reminded me in Apollo 13, just before the family goes to mission control and learns the mission is not being broadcast, the teenage girl is having a fit and doesn't want to go. "I hate Paul!" And her little sister teases, "Is she still going on about the Beatles breaking up?" I loved this quote because for many people, this will remind them clearly of the time period where the Apollo 13 incident took place.

Harihead, I love that. I am sure anyone who was alive at the time remembers hearing about The Beatles breaking up and I am sure everyone remembers Apollo 13.

I was reading Pet Sematary (Stephen King) and in the pet cematary was a grave marker that said "RINGO OUR HAMSTER 1964-1965"

King has made several Beatle reference in a few of his books.  One off the top of my head is Needful Things.  I am sure there are others.

Also, I was watching "Everybody Loves Raymond" (don't ask me why I was bored) and his mom and dad were talking about how much they love jazz music and his mom made a comment "Those Beatles were just terrible!"

About a year ago I heard one of those talking head tabloid reporters (probably Harvey whats-his-name from TMZ, maybe someone else) refer to Britney Spears as being 'the Beatles of public meltdowns.'

Does anyone remember the episode of The Simpsons (it's probably over 10 years old) when Homer became part of a 4-piece band that paralleled the Beatles?  I could be wrong but I think the band was Homer, Flanders, Moe the bartender and Barney (the barfly who's always burping).
