Hollywood’s love of sequels has hit television.
Now that two years have passed, it’s finally time for the Family Guy to debut the next installment in their Star Wars trilogy. Unfortunately, those looking for it will have to their local store—at least for now.
In an effort to maximize profits, FOX has decided to deliver its Empire Strikes Back parody on DVD before airing it on television. They’ve also chosen December 22 as the release date. I’d say it’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas.

If the Today show producers ever decided to replace Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb for an extra hour of this every day, I might actually start watching.
On today’s Halloween-themed broadcast, we all - even die-hard Stars Wars fans - learned a few new facts about those creatures called Ewoks.
- They don’t know crap about decoupage.
- They love drinking vodka in the morning.
- They know how to moonwalk.
- They will kick each other in front of the cameras, even before you even say “Action.”
- They will hump anything…whether it be Al Roker‘s leg or the ground.

- Deal or No Deal (NBC, 8pm): “Darth Vader subs for The Banker in a Star Wars-themed episode that also features Carrie Fisher, R2-D2 and Chewbacca, who cheer on contesants in a winner-take-all match.” As if I needed a reason to avoid this program altogether.
- House (FOX, 9pm): New episode. “House suspects that an ER patient with a sunny disposition has a bigger problem than was initially diagnosed. The reason: He thinks the patient is too nice.” I have to admit it—cheery people are a freak of nature.
- Medium (NBC, 10pm): “Joe surprises Allison by buying her a used car, but Allison’s subsequent visions warn of the vehicle’s unsavory past.” Is it a 1958 Plymouth Fury that responds to the name ‘Christine’?
- CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm): “A clue in a case involving the discovery of a body point the CSIs to a robbery that’s being planned on a target who holds a disturbing secret.” Murders have never been linked to anti-climatic or lame secrets.
Star Wars creator George Lucas is planning a live-action TV series spinoff of the well-loved sci-fi film franchise. Although he’s just started working on the series, Lucas is firm that it will not contain any Skywalkers. In fact, no major characters from the film will appear in the small screen version. Lucas (jokingly?) told reporters the series will be about the life of robots, though he won’t reveal any other details about the series. There is no network yet attached to the work.
Will the public love the small screen Star Wars as much as they love the movies? If the merchandising tells us nothing, it’s that people will buy anything with Star Wars printed on it.
