I'm not sure if any of the TV sitcoms or dramas were able to work the election into their plotlines this year, but I wouldn't be surprised if 'Boston Legal' did; they've always been pretty timely with their references to current events. And now it looks like David E. Kelley's legal dramedy will be the first to incorporate the election results into Toobworld.
ABC's November sweeps overview revealed that the November 17th episode of 'Boston Legal' will be about a woman (played by Cheri Oteri, pictured here with series stars James Spader and Candice Bergen) who lost her job because she voted for John McCain.

This coming Wednesday, the show will film a scene for that episode which will refer to the actual outcome of the election the day before. (I doubt there's going to be any trouble that lasts for days, as happened in 2000.)

As the show heads for its final episode in December, they're certainly keeping things interesting right to the very end!
