Carol Burnett filed a $2-million copyright infringement lawsuit against 20th Century Fox, claiming her cleaning woman character was portrayed on the animated series "Family Guy." The U.S. District Court suit filed in L.A. this week said the Fox Broadcasting show didn't have her permission to include her cleaning woman character Charwoman in an April 2006 episode. The episode shows Charwoman as a porno shop maid and it uses what the lawsuit called an "altered version" of Burnett's theme music.

Fox Television is in a family way again. The company has ordered a minimum of 22 new episodes of the animated series "Family Guy" more than two years after its initial run ended. The move is in response to the series' strengthening afterlife on DVD and in reruns on the Cartoon Network. It's been drawing high ratings on cable since the Cartoon Network began programming it opposite the broadcast networks' late-night talk shows, and it ranked as the top-selling television offering on DVD in 2003.
