Radar O'Reilly on M*A*S*H, a show set in the early 1950s, falls asleep with his beloved copy of a comic book from at least fifteen years in the future. (The Korean War ended in 1953; Avengers #60 came out in late 1968.)
From what I understand this episode was in the 4th season airing around 1976. Also with some cut scenes around here the issue mysteriously changed between the one shown in your picture and issue 72, 1970 shown here.

On the TV show "Frasier", Martin brings Niles a comic to read during his Hospital stay. There's a comment "I know how you love your Archies" and Niles responds with "Oh, a Jughead Double Digest". It's not a digest, it's a standard size comic. The comic scene starts at about 7:00 in, and the best shot of the cover is about 7:12. I haven't been able to ID the comic even though the cover colors and logo should make it easy. I've looked at both the regular Jughead series and the Giant series, but can't pinpoint the issue. It should be pre-1987 as the cover format changed slightly after that.
