TV Land Makes Changes to March Line-Up; 'Home Improvement' Season 6 DVD in May; Calling All 'Three's Company' Fans, Send Trivia to WGN Radio!
Click HERE to view the full list of changes in a list format, along with the full TV Land March highlights.
We have gotten word that Buena Vista Home Entertainment in association with Touchstone Television (or should we now say ABC Television Studio?) will release the 6th Season DVD of the Tim Allen sitcom Home Improvement on May 15. More power to us for telling you first! Still no date on the Scrubs Season 5 DVD we reported last week, but I expect it in May, too.
Finally, you think you know a lot of Three's Company trivia? Well, if you do get your questions ready and try to stump a huge fan at WGN Radio. His name is Andy Hermann and he is a huge fan. If you remember, this same show on WGN Radio brought us interviews with Chris Mann, Richard Kline and Priscilla Barnes. Not to mention the numerous segments on the Jack Tripper line, "Uno, dos, tres, catorce," which the U2 singer Bono has used in one of their songs. Has Bono paid tribute to Jack Tripper? Who knows. Anyway e-mail your questions to Nick at email@example.com, with the question and answer. He will not show the answers to Andy. Your questions will be heard live on the radio. This is a weekly segment every Sunday night at like 1:45am CT. If you can't stay up that late, you can listen to the archives of each segment here. I myself have submitted questions the last two weeks. Listen to those segments especially: Week 1 and Week 2. Both Sitcoms Online and Jack's Bistro (my site on the show), are mentioned! I will submit more questions for this week. So come up with some tough questions...but remember it has to deal with the show's plot, for example one of my questions was, What was the name of the plant that Larry told the trio was marijuana? The answer...False Aralia.
