Fox Finally Releasing 'WKRP' DVD Soon, 'The Loop' Also Coming; TBS Shuffles 'Mullally', 'Saved by the Bell'

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has hinted on the upcoming DVD set for Stacked (streeting this Tuesday) that they will be releasing the classic '70s sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati and upcoming mid-season sitcom The Loop on DVD soon. They are both listed as "Coming Soon." This is wonderful news and I'm sure fans of WKRP are ecstatic right now. Let's hope all the music will be intact since it has taken so long for this series to come to DVD. The Loop will probably come when Fox launches the second season this mid-season. Todd got our review copy of the Stacked DVD and found this little tidbit on an insert. We will certainly keep you posted of all news on this. Let's hope Fox announces this officially with much more details very soon. WKRP is no where to be found on television these days, so I'm sure fans will flock to the stores like "turkeys" and get this set. Just don't drop that turkey! I hope The Wonder Years is next on their "surprise us" list. Discuss this piece of news with other WKRP fans, by clicking here.
UPDATE: TVShowsonDVD.com has given an update to our news saying the WKRP set is coming in April! They also say that SOME of the music will be indeed replaced. While fans might be a bit disappointed to hear that, the creator of the series has heard some of the replaced music and has given the thumbs up on it. At least we will have some original music though. Let's just hope there is no edits in the content of the show. Click here to view the story.

Looks like The Megan Mullally Show cable encores are not doing well for TBS at 8 AM because as of Dec. 6 they moved the show quietly to 6 AM, and shifting Saved by the Bell from 6-8am to 7-9am. And starting Feb. 1, it seems Mullally will be gone, and replaced by The Cosby Show and The Drew Carey Show from 6-7am weekdays. So Drew is back once more. I believe Drew expires in fall 2007, so this will be its last hurrah unless they renew.

Be sure to come back tomorrow as we will tell you a sitcom that is coming to CMT. Yes, CMT...and no it will NOT be Evening Shade or Jeff Foxworthy Show. We also will likely have TV Land and Nick@Nite January sometime this week...so this will be a big week and you don't want to miss a day, so come back every single day!
