One day Hudson University of New York will be inducted into the Television Crossover Hall of Fame.  It gets used often enough to be on a par with Morley’s Cigarettes and the Los Angeles Chronicle and the New York Chronicle. Among the shows in which Hudson University showed up:
  • Without a Trace
  • Blindspot
  • The Cosby Show
  • Degrassi: The Next Generation
  • Law & Order
  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager
  • Unforgettable
  • Murder, She Wrote
  • Beauty & the Beast
  • The Mysteries of Laura
  • Bull
  • The Flash  
  • 13 Reasons Why
  • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
  • SEAL Team
  • Blue Bloods
  • Elementary  
  • The Flash  
  • Castle  
  • Quantico
  • Shooter
Just as a fluke, today I caught the “Fade Away” episode of ‘Without A Trace’ which had the references to Hudson University.
Xander Marrs:Dude, you're gonna get into Hudson U. You can make it easy.
Samantha Spade:All right, his name is Lyle Carver. Hudson U, class of '85. He's now a big donor to the athletic department.
Ted Soros:Oh, I'm going in style too. Xander Marrs:I like HU already.

Xander Marrs:We went to a Hudson U mixer last weekend. That's when I knew Ted was in deep.
Xander Marrs:So, what happens at these parties? Ted Soros:Well it starts with alums and boosters trying to sell you on playing for Hudson U. BCnU!
