Three's Company has finished on DVD...or so you think! Anchor Bay has told us they will release two more sets on Jan. 30, 2007. What will these consist of? They will be single disc sets with the best episodes for Jack and Janet. The Jack Tripper set is titled Three's Company: Capturing the Laughter - Jack's Episodes, will be John Ritter's favorite episodes. He mentioned his favorite episodes when he was alive and Anchor Bay will release some of those episodes on this set. The Janet Wood set is titled Three's Company: Capturing the Laughter - Janet's Episodes, will be Joyce DeWitt's favorite episodes that she herself handpicked for this set! Anchor Bay has not yet announced what the episodes are, but we can expect 5-6 episodes on each set. Will they do best-of sets for each character? As of now, there are no plans, but if these do well, I wouldn't be surprised to see them.
Also, we have to have both spin-offs of the show--The Ropers and Three's a Crowd on DVD. Please email them and tell them we want both spin-offs at: TVonDVD@anchorbayent.com and also at 3sco@dltentertainment.com. We must do this, so fans can have all of the Three's Company universe on DVD. I will have more details on the two best-of sets soon right here and on my Three's Company website.

And for the fourth straight week, TV Land has moved the Friday Night Movie Encore to another night. This time the encore will air this Saturday at 8 p.m. This week's movie is Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear, and it will still premiere Friday at 10. So, this again means Benson will air Friday night from approx. 12 am to 4 am! This will not happen next Friday as that will be Star Trek weekend. So, Benson fans take note!
