"Star Wars" Dominates Rose Parade
George Lucas is the Grand Marshall, he's got geeks who love to dress up as Storm Troopers flying in from all over the country appearing and two floats celebrate his worst ideas: the Ewoks and the planet Naboo. One bizarre comment at the end of the piece insists this daytime spectacle will be seen on TV by 30 million people. Huh? That would make it the number one show of the week if it were seen in primetime, PLUS viewing levels are depressed during the holidays. No idea where they got that figure from, but the ratings won't be even close to that.
