Fox Changes Sunday Schedule; Not Good News For 'WKRP' DVD

Fox has booked April 22 for The War at Home season finale (series finale I bet) at a special time of 7 p.m. Effective that date, King of the Hill will move back to 7:30 p.m. for the rest of the season with The Simpsons encores airing at 8:30 for the rest of the season. King of the Hill will also air a mix of new episodes and repeats at 7 p.m. starting April 29.
And when the season ends, the summer Sunday line-up will again be changed. Starting June 10, encores of The War at Home will air at 7:00 p.m., King of the Hill follows at 7:30 p.m., The Simpsons encores at 8:00 p.m., American Dad encores move to 8:30 p.m., Family Guy encores at 9:00 p.m. and the return of The Loop with all new episodes at 9:30 p.m.
Finally, Fox will just air the yet to air new drama Drive for 6 weeks now. The drama will air Mondays starting April 16 and will conclude May 7, but Fox says the remaining 7 episodes will return, probably in late summer, if it does well.

Jamie J. Weinman's "Something Old, Something New" blog has just posted a story on their thoughts on the WKRP Season 1 DVD. Jamie's blog, which are thoughts on popular culture and unpopular culture, lists the music replaced and even worse...the list of edits on the season one DVD. Jamie says, it's pretty similar to the list of music changes from the late '90s syndication package; some of the generic music and overdubbing is the same in both versions. Not good at all. You can read his great list HERE. And look for our detailed review from skees53 very soon! It will unfortunately not be a positive review...but hopefully fans still buy it but tell Fox they are not happy.
