On Gear Live: Amazon Fire TV Cube hands-on review, new AirPods 2 coming soon - Geared Up!

Hollywood’s love of sequels has hit television.

Now that two years have passed, it’s finally time for the 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.

Going sans Simpsons for the night, FOX gave their entire Sunday night line-up to Seth MacFarlane, creator and main voice talent of . Two brand-new episodes of the series, a fresh installment of the spin-off and a half-hour special featuring the man himself took up every last moment of the prime time bloc.

Could this be the dawn of a new, MacFarlane-driven era on FOX? Will Family Guy programming, and related shows, soon take up all of Sunday night?

Actually, it all makes sense now.

Family Guy revealed last night that is actually a robot, created by Disney to be the perfect pop star. You’ll see it all happen in the clip above (find it about four minutes in).

MONDAY (11/9)
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie and Alan wake up together…with a woman they don’t recognize.” Strange, but significantly less awkward than two and a half men.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Ray Langston of the Las Vegas crime lab arrives in Miami to investigate after a severed leg found in the Everglades is discovered to belong to a girl who disappeared in Las Vegas a week earlier.” Horatio + Morpheus = sunglasses showdown.
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 10pm):  “Jake gets his own cell phone for his 12th birthday, and before long he racks up an outrageous bill, making Matt and Amy question whether he s ready for the responsibility.” The Learning Channel is not known for highlighting responsibility—in pre-teens or fathers of eight.

Apparently there are things won’t do to promote Windows 7.

The software corporation recently announced that it has severed ties from a FOX event it was set to exclusively sponsor. Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show, a special airing next month, would have incorporated bits about the company’s new product in lieu of traditional commercials. Unfortunately, the execs had a change of heart after watching a taping earlier this month.

Although animated portions of the variety special reportedly cover controversial subjects like incest, feminine hygiene and the Holocaust, those segments were supposedly in line with a typical episode. It’s the live segments Seth MacFarlane and Alex Borstein (Lois Griffin) taped before an audience that may have been considered questionable.

After only a handful of episodes, FOX is pleased enough with The Cleveland Show to order a complete second season. (Only 13 episodes beyond this year had been previously ordered.)

Honestly, I’ve no idea why. The spin-off lacks a lot of the hilarity brings to the table weekly, and I just cannot get over that German bear. Ridiculous is one thing. Outlandish is quite another.

There may have been a wedding on Wisteria Lane, but all the attention was on Cleveland last night. Although they pulled in numbers similar to their May finales, Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters both had their lowest-rated premieres to date. Meanwhile, the debut of The Cleveland Show had the best 18-49 start for any FOX comedy since March 2003.
