i Network Saturday Marathon Episodes; Three's Company Season 8 DVD Review; Ugly Betty - New Series Premieres TONIGHT

The i Network has announced the episode info for their Saturday marathons for October. The Monkees, Welcome Back Kotter, and The Partridge Family will be airing Oct, 7, 14 and 21. We have the episodes for those marathons now! We still don't have the launch marathon episodes for Amen, which launches Oct. 28.
The Saturday marathons starting Oct. 7 will be cut to 8:30-10pm instead of 8-10pm. At 8 p.m. they will air a new half-hour weekly series called i Health Presents ... The series will take a look at cholesterol, diabetes, osteoporosis, among other health issues.
As for the episode info for the Saturday marathons, click HERE.

The Three's Company Season 8 DVD comes out next Tuesday (Oct. 3), and we have already reviewed it for you. The eight and final season features 21 memorable episodes with great special features, including hilarious bloopers and a feature called "John Ritter: Working with a Master." The set is great and it is a great way to end the series on DVD. Also, I have started a campaign to push DLT Entertainment and Anchor Bay to release the spin-offs (The Ropers, Three's a Crowd) on DVD. Please e-mail them and let them know we need these shows on DVD, too: TVonDVD@anchorbayent.com and 3sco@dltentertainment.com. Please do it, because it will make a difference. To read my review of the season 8 DVD go to my website (DVDs section) or you can read it right here at SitcomsOnline.com.

We have given you sitcom pilot reviews of every sitcom so far that has aired ('Til Death, Happy Hour, The Class, Help Me Help You). Tonight a one-hour comedy is premiering on ABC called Ugly Betty. This show is labeled as a comedy and is one-hour, so we won't give you a review on it, but I saw the pilot before and it is VERY good. I highly recommend you to watch it. Most are calling this one of the best new series and I also would put it up there among those. So, tune in tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT for a truly charming and funny show called Ugly Betty.
Tomorrow we will have a pilot review of the new CW sitcom The Game, which premieres this Sunday. So come on back!
