    Your name will appear in the list of people who ...
    I don't think that one is going to end up on the list...

    I saw you on the show the other night.

    Re: in or on

    Flying in the show means they were flying to some place. We are flying in London next week.

    And concerning the in/on the list, I think "on" is more common and preferable . e.g. a) He will be on the football team list. b) Radiohead is number one band on his list.
