A commercial I saw during last night’s finale of America’s Next Top Model (Shut up!) indicates that one of the geeks from the upcoming season of Beauty and the Geek is part of a “Star Wars tribute band.” He sings a few bars from a song about Han Solo.
I am disturbed. Which may be ironic for someone who runs a website containing the internet’s biggest collection of Star Wars filk (and admits to watching ANTM,) but so be it.

The Sci-Fi Channel and Stan Lee are hooking up for Who Wants to be a Superhero? I don’t know how much mileage there is in this concept, but I really, really want them to team up with Project Runway. Somebody has to smite
General Zod Santino before I start throwing stuff at my TV.

Four, count ‘em – four new commercials from The Apprentice featuring Star Wars characters: Style, Death Star, Blame Game, and Fired.
After watching these spots I’m convinced pretty much the only thing that Vader can do for Trump is put him out of my misery.

I don’t know about you, but Star Wars isn’t going to make me watch The Apprentice. I already took one for the team this year. Screw Trump.
I’m more of a Martha fan anyway. That woman would make one hell of a Sith, and Trump is the Admiral Daala to her Palpatine.
And since yes, since there is TV that doesn’t involve ‘reality,’ there was quite a big chunk of ROTS reference – an entire conversation, even – on last night’s Gilmore Girls. I’m keeping my eyes out for a transcript, but for now let me just say it involved higher ground. And ranting. Lovely, lovely ranting.
