The one I can think of that hasn't been previously mentioned is that the title of each episode of "The L Word" always starts with the letter "L".

Robot chicken has done a theme for their episode names for the first half of season 4. Cartoon network aired the episodes out of order, but if you put the titles in order you get a little note:

Help Me
I'm Trapped
In A DVD Factory
They Took My Thumbs
Two Weeks Without Food
Tell My Mom
I Love Her
Not In That Way
Love, Maurice
P.S. Yes, In That Way

Most of the episodes of the 1950's Dragnet were titled "The Big _______", as were all the episodes of the UPN sitcom Half & Half.

Sometimes it's an important phrase... and sometimes it's just a throwaway that works well as an interesting title.

I'm thinking some other show did this before them and they just borrowed the idea.

I like it though.
The Amazing Race also does this.
