FOX laughed all the way to the bank with their episode of Joe Millionaire last night. After successfully billing it as the show where the winner gets picked, they lured 23 million Nielsen viewers into an hour-long commercialfest and recap show that did absolutely nothing to further the events of the show, and then advertised that the real final show would be next week.

At least FOX knows how to milk its shows though. Next weekend, Daredevil with Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck is being released to much ballyhoo (associated with FOX of course) and Jennifer is also hosting SNL. But rather than use the opportunity to promote their one drama that doesn't suck, ABC has decided to postpone it for one week, and will show a made-for-TV version of The Music Man with Matthew Broderick instead. Another Alias star, Victor Garber, is also in the production, but of course they never mention him at all in the numerous plugs during the last episode of Alias.

It was a pretty slow day in the sweatshop on Sunday, so for kicks I did a throwaway arrangement of the overworld theme from Super Mario Brothers 2 for a small panoply of winds and percussion. It's easily the cheeriest song ever written (even beating Sibelius' 5th).
