Swapmeet is a sitcom advertised in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It broadcasts on Thursday evenings on the Weazel network, making its ninth season premier on October 30th, 1998, in which Lorraine becomes pregnant and Sonar the Dolphin is introduced. The show is apparently a parody of Friends, with a review in the Liberty Tree calling it a "sexually ambiguous situationer" with "great haircuts and apartments". The show has been criticized for painting an unrealistic idea of city life and being generally unfunny. The show is followed in Weasel's schedule by the poorly received Bad T and Theo.

The show was indirectly mentioned by Panjit Gavaskar, the DJ of Radio Del Mundo.
