Post Desperate Housewives
So I watch Desperate Housewives every now and then... I'm not a HUGE fan of it. Well, anyways, today I discovered a list of episode titles, which include titles such as: "Sunday in the Park with George", "Children Will Listen", "The Ladies Who Lunch", "You Could Drive A Person Crazy", etc... They're all named after Sondheim songs! Isn't that cool?

What do you mean, show titles?

Thats pretty cool though, even though I don't watch TV much. And Desperate Housewives I would refuse to watch since they killed off Roger Bart's character (I LOVED him in the Producers.... I saw him as Leo and it was the best two hours of my life watching.)

Eponine, almost all of the episode titles of Desperate Housewives are Sondheim songs or lyrics.

I'm pretty sure it's all.
That's what the producer said in the interview.

He's a Sondheimist, himself.

Another Sondheim link for the show will be made when Vanessa Williams, who's currently in Sondheim on Sondheim, will join the cast of Desperate Housewives next season. Great news for Desperate Housewives, but it's a pity that Williams couldn't star in a real musical before heading back to the small screen.

No it isn't, David. I saw her in Sondheim on Sondheim. She was aight. Nothing special. Kritzer and Mackey both blew her out of the water, and unfortunately, had SO much less to do in comparison.
