Wish Upon A Star

He made it!

Disney's new chairman and chief exec officer Michael D. Eisner reportedly had some competition when he "auditioned" for host of ABC's "Disney Sunday Movie," which debuted last Sunday. But he must have done something right his first time out, because he's back again tonight! (Tune in at 7.)

"And it looks like he'll be doing others; we don't know exactly how many just yet," said a series spokeswoman.

Quite possibly the first actual full-fledged, unadulterated Hollywood executive deal-maker to cast himself as the host of a series, Eisner emphasized in his debut shot that the studio was determined to uphold the Disney commitment to family entertainment and family values.

And he wrapped the 90-second entreaty by shaking hands with someone dressed up like a mouse.
