Any good Star Wars related TV tie ins airing this week?

I saw The Science of Star Wars on Discovery
Another network had a show about Star Wars related video games.
Cartoon Network showed the animated Clone Wars.

What else is out there? Any idea of when it's playing?

The characters from the movie made an appearance on Letterman to do the top 10. They spoke in their own languages and it can be seen on the Late Show's home page.

Top Ten Things Never Before Said By A "Star Wars" Character


10. C-3PO: "May the Force be with the Miami Heat--daddy's got 20 large riding on them."

9. Storm Trooper: "Ask your doctor or pharmacist if Cialis is right for you."

8. Ewok: "Seacrest, out!"

7. Darth Maul: "The only good thing ever to come from planet Earth is fish sticks."

6. R2-D2: "I just hooked up backstage with an ice machine."

5. Imperial Guard: "The only people more powerful than I are Emperor Palpatine and Oprah."

4. Chewbacca: "We got spaceships and lightsabers, but nobody can find me a damn razor."

3. Jango Fett: "Let's put on some Al Jarreau so me and you can get freaky."

2. Tuscan Raider: "How bad is CBS screwed without 'Everybody Loves Raymond'?"

1. Darth Vader: "I once used the force to open a jar of Vlasic kosher pickles."

If I had to watch that again I'd bash my TV in.

Did you catch that they kept referring to the movie as Return of the Sith? Way to go, jackasses. They could have trimmed that "behind the scenes" to about 15 minutes. I swear that they played clips of the actors saying the same things 3 or 4 times.

The "Creatures of Star Wars" thing, or whatever it was called, on Animal Planet was pretty good.

Someone said they saw something on A&E where they showed Kurt Russel's screen tests the night before the film was released. Anyone know what they're talking about. They said it wasn't Empire of Dreams.
