"That 70s Show" is coming to FX this fall. You can look forward to seeing "That 70s Show" 5 days a week. I can't wait to see all those "classic" episodes again! Note to FOX: Why don't you air episodes from the first 2 seasons anymore?
"That 70s Show" will air it's 100th episode on April 30th. To celebrate FOX is having a full night of "That 70s Show" grooviness. The 100th episode is called "That 70s Musical" and the entire episode will be a musical with the entire cast singing and dancing. Roger Daltrey, singer of the classic rock band The Who will guest star.
Also airing that night will be "That 70s Special", which will include behind the scenes footage, bloopers, and more. This one hour special will be on after "That 70's Musical".
Following "That 70s Special" will be a "Viewers Choice" episode. Vote for your favorite episode at fox.com or that70sshow.com. The episode with the most votes will air. I'm begging you not to vote for "Eric's Hot Cousin", not that I think it's a bad episode, it's just too recent. I think a "classic" episode, especially the pilot would be an excellent match with the 100th.
