Why don't more shows do Passover episodes?

Tonight is the first night of Passover, and in honor of that, I wanted to come up with a list of Passover episodes from my favorite series. But I wracked my brain and came up with very little. Googling "passover" and "episode", or "passover", "seder" and "TV" came up with two examples: a episode of Rugrats (which I always hated) and an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm (which I've never seen -- I don't have HBO, remember).

It's weird; you'd think with all the fellow members of the tribe that work in Hollywood, we'd see more Passover seders on our televisions. Maybe in the past people thought it was too ethnic to be accepted by mainstream America, and now it may be too traditional. But with the whole "hip to be Jewish" movement these days, you'd think there'd be seders all over TV right now, even if they just consist of Sarah Silverman swearing before saying "pass the gefilte fish."

Am I missing something? Have there been Passover-themed episodes of other shows that I'm not remembering? Let me know in the comments.
