I agree with your reasoning, Quest, but I have a feeling the show is going to end up on ABC. With all of these reports about Disney wanting to strengthen their relationship with Lucasfilm, and the supposed additional Star Wars presence at Disney World going into construction next year, I could see ABC's exclusive rights to the show being part of the deal. Only time will tell, of course, but I just think Star Wars is way to mainstream to end up on a channel like HBO, that in most areas is available only in premium priced cable packages. I know with my cable provider the HBO package is pretty expensive (compared to basic cable, at least). Lucas has never been one to limit his available audience like that.
