Almost a billion dollars. Wow. Well, he went from rumors of being deeply in debt to making almost $800 million dollars in 1 year.
The movie "This Is It" made over $260 million dollars while his DVD's and CD's were flying off of record shelves, selling just under 9 million on catalog CD sales, which made the estate around $80 million dollars.
Michael's kids one day will see this money but I am sure like most of the rest of the world, they rather just have their father back. He really set those kids up for life to make sure they are never broke.-Dr.FB
Futurama is taking a note out of "The Family Guy", returning to Comedy Central for at least 26 new episodes over the next 2 seasons.
Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, the creators of Futurama are pleased and already working on stories to air mid-2010. Comedy Central already aired 4 specials before as DVD sales and repeats are keeing the series alive and bringing new life to the cancelled show. In 2010, it will be 7 years since a new episode aired.
We hear it will start up where the last special ended. Very cool and glad to see it has found life again in the....err....future.-Dr.FB
