With all the activity around SDCC we forgot to relay some other excellent news.

Finale Ratings: First up is the fantastic ratings that the Avatar series finale achieved. The last four episodes broadcast on Saturday, July 19th apparently attracted 5.6 million viewers, a record for Avatar and good enough to place Avatar among the top five cable shows for that week. Check out the ratings as reported by USA Today about halfway down the page. This is a huge achievement to the show staff and the fans who waited many, long months without losing their enthusiasm for one of the best shows on television.

Avatar MMORPG: In another signal that Nickelodeon is continuing to support the franchise, a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) for Avatar has been announced by Nick and Viacom that is to debut this coming September. You can download a preview of the beta, and check out the Viacom press release using the link above or the press release itself in the Press Release section of ASN.

Season Three Box Set: Several days ago the good folks over at TV published the reverse cover art for the season three box set of Avatar. The back side revealed the extras that are to be included. They are:

  • Inside Sozin's Comet: Exclusive Four-Part Audio Commentary by Creators
  • The Women of Avatar: The Last Airbender
  • Book 3 Finale Pencil Test Animation
  • Into the Fire Nation at San Diego Comic Con

Also, don't forget that the volume 4 DVD goes on sale tomorrow!
