That's no ten minute job I'm afraid.  I think it's better to use more
screen for the selector box rather than show descriptions.  Yes, if
you're using a grabber whose source is a Pulitzer prize winning essay
writer, stuff will get chopped off.  I'd much rather have a longer
list than a half-screen show description.

As for there being an option to select this - there isn't one.
