meta-entertainment
n. Entertainment in which the subject is some other form of entertainment.

Example Citation:
"The finest example of meta-entertainment now playing...is Mystery Science Theater 3000, a television show created in 1988 that has achieved cult status. The show runs decades-old B movies in the background while three fictional characters, silhouetted at the bottom of the screen, provide a running commentary of wisecracks."
—James Gleick, "Addicted to Speed," The New York Times Magazine
