I haven't really been following Desperate Housewives, and as a new show it isn't a subject for this blog, but I'm amused to note in the episode guide that most of the episode titles come from old Broadway musical songs, particularly songs by Stephen Sondheim. Previous episodes have included "Who's That Woman?" (Follies) "Ah, But Underneath" (pointless revisal of Follies), "Pretty Little Picture" (A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum). Upcoming episode titles include "Anything You Can Do" (Annie Get Your Gun, Irving Berlin), "Come Back To Me" (On a Clear Day You Can See Forever,, Alan Lerner & Burton Lane) and "Every Day a Little Death" (A Little Night Music). Plus there are some non-Broadway song titles in there like "Come In, Stranger." Well, it beats "The One Where..." or that Seinfeld "The [blank]" thing.
