Too Many Eps Spoil the Broth

I was in a meeting yesterday and somebody uttered an idiom I hadn't heard in ages — too many chefs spoil the broth. That sounds like the perfect phrase for TV writers of old to have fun for the typical sitcom and for TV writers today to honor for cooking-related shows. Here's the short list of eps:
  • The Many Robots Spoil the Broth (''Daigunder,'' 11/8/2003)
  • Too Many Cooks Are Murder (''Hart to Hart,'' 5/6/1980)
  • Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen (''The Party Planner with David Tutera'')
  • Too Many Cooks Spoil the Troop (''F Troop,'' 3/29/1966)
  • Too Many Greens Spoil the Bath (''Bad, Bad Bath,'' 5/16/2006)
  • Too Many Kooks Spoil the Broth (''The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis,'' 1/9/1963)
  • Too Many Limburgers Spoil the Cheese (''Biker Mice from Mars,'' 11/11/1995)
  • Too Many Waiters Spoil the Bistro (''Robin's Nest,'' 3/15/1979)
