The creator of "Moonlighting" says he's not pleased at the way ABC promoted the episode in which Maddie Hayes (Cybill Shepherd) and David Addison (Bruce Willis) consummated their long-denied love affair. Glenn Gordon Caron told the Buffalo News he thinks the promotions eliminated the suspense. "Because they were premiering 'Max Headroom' that night, ABC promoted us by saying 'Tonight, they do it.' I was very much against that," said Caron. "It's like saying, 'Go see "Psycho," Tony Perkins is his mother.' You take away one bit of the mystery that keeps the thing perking."
