USA Today published an article today on Avatar entitled, "Nickelodeon pins hopes on 'Avatar'." Referring to Avatar as "what could emerge as the next big entertainment business trend", the article notes that all eyes will be on the Nielsen ratings for the season three premiere tonight.

Avatar fans are also apparently spending a considerable amount on DVD's, toys, games and so forth. The article indicates that "Nickelodeon expects consumers to spend about $121 million this year on the franchise, rising to $254 million in 2009." The first live action movie is apparently due out sometime in 2009.
