Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! News is a little slow this week as the Winter Olympics are getting all of the attention, but we are hearing about some things going on at ABC and a renewal for a popular Comedy Central series. Also, after a long dry spell of DVD news, we're hearing about some new releases, including one very surprising one. Let's get going!
