“Sweeps Week”? More Like “Stupid Week,” Am I Right You Guys?!

This is real. Real dumb. Reports the Futon Critic:

A special two-hour “winner takes all” Star Wars-themed episode of Deal or No Deal will shift NBC’s sweep month into hyperdrive on Monday, April 28 with guest supporters Carrie Fisher, Chewbacca, R2D2 and Darth Vader as the villainous banker.

That’s it for Star Wars, right? Like, all the good will that was drained by Jar Jar Binks left us with nothing but our nostalgic respect for the original trilogy, and the hope that with enough time we could revise history and leave the legacy intact. But now we’re done. It’s time to sink Star Wars to the bottom of Whoops Ocean, along with Michael Jackson, The O.C., and Robert De Niro.
