One of the things I find most annoying about television is the canard that occurs at the end of nearly every episodic program, when the star does a voice-over, saying, "Don't go away. I Married Hop Sing will be right back." Then after you dutifully sit through two minutes of commercials, what's your reward? The theme song and the rolling of the credits. Yeah, right. My enjoyment of a bad sitcom simply isn't complete until I know who was the costuming assistant.
