I was watching Frasier last night and they referenced the events of the previous episode as something that had happened "weeks ago." I found this distressing. I don't need it explicitly stated, but I want to imagine that each episode of a sitcom takes place roughly one week after the last. EXCEPTING two-parters, which are obviously very special situations that merit different considerations.
