* ''Series/TheGoodWife'': First-season episodes titles were one word long, second-season episode titles were two words, and so forth through Season Four. Beginning in the fifth season, the pattern is reversed, going back to three-word titles. The hope of the creators is that the show will run for seven seasons, so the pattern will presumably be 1-2-3-4-3-2-1.
