Two notable items from the entertainment world this morning. First off, the WB has canceled Angel, finally bringing an end to the evil that Kristy Swanson and Pee Wee Herman wrought upon the world years ago. Since a number of CH folks are into the Buffy scene I thought they'd be interested to know.
And, in a crushing blow to creative diversity, Disney is buying the Muppets. I was a little bummed about this, since I always thought of Henson as a constant underdog challenge to Diseny's domination of the children's entertainment market. Then I remembered Muppet Treasure Island and realized that both studios have pretty much been in the shitter since The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Eisner is hoping the Muppets will save his job. Maybe if he can get Mark Hammill to reprise his guest appearance on The Muppet Show.
