This really has nothing to do with television shows but it does involve the mass media and a professional athlete, so it kind of counts.
Kansas City Chiefs Safety, Eric Berry, has a phobia of horses. The bad part is that after every touchdown the Chiefs’ mascot, a horse named Warpaint, trots a lap around the field. Berry goes to great lengths to avoid the horse due to his fear. This video (which gets really funny around the 5:00 mark) goes through his reactions to the horse and a sort of comedic desensitization program to deal with his phobia. Since I’m a Chiefs fan, this is probably more entertaining to me, but your students might enjoy it too.
