Own a Piece of Television History from "That '70s Show" and "Malcolm in the Middle"

[via press release from FOX]


As FOX bids farewell to two of its longest-running sitcoms, MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE and THAT '70s SHOW, fans have an opportunity to own a piece of television history with props from both sets up for auction on eBay for charity.

Viewers can log on to www.ebay.com/70sandmalcolm to bid on the Formans' living room couch, where Kelso (Ashton Kutcher) proposed to Jackie (Mila Kunis), and Malcolm's (Frankie Muniz) kitchen table, where his dysfunctional family gathered to eat dinner for seven seasons. Many other collectible items also are part of the charity auction, which will run through Wednesday, May 17 (9:00 PM EST). The proceeds will benefit the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children� and the Young Storytellers Foundation.

In the "Graduation" episode of MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE on Sunday, May 14 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), Malcolm (Muniz) is elected valedictorian and struggles with his speech, but Lois (Jane Kaczmarek) refuses to hear his complaints and reveals her plans for him to become President of the United States. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Reese (Justin Berfield) will do anything to get a permanent job as the high school janitor, even concocting the most disgusting mess of all time, which explodes all over the family. Meanwhile, Hal (Bryan Cranston) struggles with Malcolm's Harvard tuition and Francis (Chris Masterson) lands a "real" job working 9 to 5 in a cubicle and enjoys every minute of it. Grandma Ida (Cloris Leachman) returns for the family festivities, and they all bid farewell to Malcolm when he leaves for college.

In the "Love of My Life/That '70s Finale" episode of THAT '70s SHOW on Thursday, May 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), when the Formans prepare for their move to Florida, Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) puts Red (Kurtwood Smith) in charge of showing their home to prospective buyers. But Red scares them away, so Kitty must take over the job, only to discover it's not as easy as it looks � especially when touring the home forces her to look back on all their special family moments. Then it's New Year's Eve and about to turn 1980 when the gang gets together to celebrate and say goodbye to the decade. Donna (Laura Prepon) prepares to leave for college, while Fez (Wilmer Valderrama) and Jackie (Kunis) come clean about their true feelings for each other. Meanwhile, Hyde (Danny Masterson) gives Red the surprise of a lifetime, while Kelso (Kutcher) returns home to ring in the new decade with his best friends.

MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE is a Regency Television production created by Linwood Boomer and executive-produced by Matthew Carlson. Gary Murphy, Michael Glouberman, Alex Reid, Rob Ulin, Eric Kaplan and Jay Kogen serve as co-executive producers and Linwood Boomer serves as a consultant.

THAT '70s SHOW is a Carsey-Werner production created by Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner and Mark Brazill. Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner, Dean Batali, Rob DesHotel and Mark Hudis are executive producers.
