Stewie - Family GuyThe news about September TV on DVD releases just keeps coming! This time it's the first season of My Name Is Earl, but wait til you hear about the extras.

This is going to be a 4 DVD superset, and extras will include not only the usual commentaries, deleted scenes, featurettes, and gag reel, but also the never used alternate pilot episode, where Earl was changed not by watching Carson Daly on TV, but by watching Stewie from Family Guy. It was supposed to be sort of a crossover ep, but they went with Daly instead.

That should be pretty cool, as will guest commentaries from Jon Favreau and Juliette Lewis.

Too bad that Family Guy crap will be poluted a quality show like My Name is Earl. People who are amused by talking babies never cease to amaze me.

"We're actually doing 15-minute mini-episode [that asks] what if Earl [Jason Lee] passed by Carson Daly and landed on Stewie from 'Family Guy,'" Garcia says. Garcia is a former producer on "Family Guy," and both it and "Earl" are produced by 20th Century Fox TV.

Bob, your wording of "never-used alternate pilot episode" suggests some confusion on your part. It makes sound as if the pilot that aired was "selected instead of" the Stewie one. I've been following news of this DVD for a little while and can say with confidence that this Stewie "version" of the episode is specially produced as a DVD bonus feature, never considered for actual use as the series premiere. Consider it a "joke" version of the pilot if you will.

I think Stewie would have been a heck of a lot funnier but since Carson and Earl are both on NBC that's probably why.
