USA Network runs three steamy back-to-back shows on Sunday nights, “Pacific Blue,” “Silk Stalkings” and “The Big Easy.” Not satisfied to appeal to the curious and prurient among us, USA Network decided to flag its Sunday night programs in TV Guide by printing the following inscription: “GUARANTEED TO BREAK AT LEAST 20% MORE COMMANDMENTS THAN ANY OTHER LINE-UP.”

Swell. Now if the guys and girls who run that network can stop giggling for just a moment, perhaps they can explain why pushing the envelope is a badge of courage. It strikes us as juvenile. It also tempts us to advise our members “Thou shalt not watch USA Network.”
