I'm tired of this meme

Looking through our favourite TV listings magazine, it seems to be knee deep in artfully posed casts. We get them draped over the set:

or against a skyline:

Sometimes they looks as if separate pictures have been badly Photoshopped together:

The newest variant of this style appears to be a flying goose-like V shape, to emphasise the main character:

With a big enough cast, two Vs can be used to highlight the upstairs and the downstairs main characters:

Sometimes, when the poses are chosen well, this can work. But mostly, it's just very tired. Every new TV series seems to get one of these style of shots.

How about a new meme?
