I Guess She Won't be Guesting on The Simpsons. The AP reports that "Carol Burnett sues over use of Charwoman." From the article: "Carol Burnett has 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 lawsuit, which was filed Thursday, said the Fox show didn't have the 73-year-old comedian's permission to include her cleaning woman character, Charwoman, in an April 2006 episode." (Full disclosure: My firm represents News Corp.)
