Does anybody know why back in the 90s-2000s when a tv show had a multi-part episode they'd often say "and now for the conclusion" on the last part? It's very weird, like it's a holdover from something older.

@gabek people were more likely to be channel surfing and only happened to see the second part?

although, if you're channel surfing, the odds that you catch the "and now the conclusion" right at the beginning seem slim

@gabek because sometimes it was more than 2 episodes long. Conclusion let's you know it's the last one. Also because you didn't get to choose when you watched they'd let you know you missed some bits before so you could bail if you weren't up to speed.
