I can remember the WWE even doing that in around 2003/2004.
I can also remember when the Canadian Football League tried to expand to the USA. There was a team in Las Vegas (I think) that had such low attendance that they moved anyone who actually showed up to the 50-yard line on the televised side and never panned the camera away from it.
