Anchor Bay February Sitcoms on DVD; Shout! Factory Has Something Up Their Sleeves for 2006

Anchor Bay Home Entertainment has released their February 2006 sitcom DVD titles. On February 7 we can expect the first season of Grounded for Life on DVD. The show is from Carsey-Werner Productions, the same people who gave us classics such as The Cosby Show, Roseanne, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and A Different World. And Anchor Bay will continue the Carsey-Werner pattern later in February with the third season release for 3rd Rock from the Sun on February 21. Don't forget that season two is out in about three weeks on Oct. 25!

Now let's move on to Shout! Factory, who have released sitcoms such as Punky Brewster and The Job. They have already told us plans that they plan to release the complete series for the short lived sitcom All-American Girl starring Margaret Cho on Jan. 31. They also have plans for other series in 2006 such as Bravo's Significant Others on Jan. 31 and The Super Mario Bros. Super Show in March! But that is not all! They have a secret sitcom (or two) coming soon. They are keeping their mouths shut right now on it. All I could get out of them is that one (or more?) is a '70s sitcom! Could it finally be WKRP in Cincinnati? Or will it be the much delayed by Sony, One Day at a Time? Or even Maude? It is quite possible that Shout! Factory could obtain Sony shows, as they have already released the first two seasons of Punky Brewster. WKRP is from 20th Century FOX, and I highly doubt they will release that, so Shout! is perfect for this. Do NOT, I repeat do NOT, e-mail or call Shout! Factory asking what this title or titles is/are going to be. They will announce it when they are ready to. They didn't tell me, so don't ask me either. Just keep this in the back of your mind for now and just wait when Shout! is ready to announce this, and I'm sure the world-renowned TVShowsonDVD.com will have the full details when available. Remember, patience is a virtue. 2006 is shaping up to be very good!
