Replacement Discs for S'more Entertainment's 'Mister Peepers' & 'Lotsa Luck'; New CBS Internet Channel

Our good friend Arny Schorr of S'more Entertainment asked us to let you all know that if you purchased DVD sets of classic sitcoms Mister Peepers and Lotsa Luck and had some problems, replacement discs are available now for free. For Lotsa Luck, an incorrect pilot episode was placed on original sets. It was given that way to them by the distributor. When the problem was identified, they went to work and discovered the correct pilot episode. They subsequently remastered Disc One to include the right pilot. There are a number of people who've contacted them for a replacement disc but in the interest of making sure no consumer is offended we are spreading the news that buyers of this set can get a replacement disc, for free!
They are also replacing discs for Mister Peepers where Sony, on the initial manufacturing run, placed two of the same discs onto each box set. To learn how you can get replacement discs of each, click here. And don't forget to visit the S'more website for information on their classic TV series on DVD. He tells me more classic TV DVDs are on the way and we will let you all know what they are when the time is right. It sounds good!

And the world of television on the internet just got bigger. Effective today, CBS has created a free service on their website called "innertube," a new, advertising-supported broadband channel offering a wide range of free entertainment programming to Internet users. In the coming months, innertube will also become a distribution outlet for streaming encore episodes from CBS's prime time line-up and for webcasts of content from CBS Corporation's vast library of 2,600 titles and 100,000 hours of television programming. It will also become an alternative programming option for series broadcast on the Network that didn't reach a mass audience, but have a loyal, passionate following that lends itself to Internet appeal.
Innertube, which can be accessed from the home page of CBS.com, will initially stream three shows daily. One new program will be posted on the channel each day, Monday through Friday, making at least five new offerings on the site throughout the week. Programming will be archived and can be accessed at any time with innertube's browse function

Three type of programming will be available eventually on this entertainment online channel:
• Original fare such as Greek to Chic, a hookup and makeover series for frat boys; Inturn, a reality show about actor hopefuls competing for a spot on CBS soap As the World Turns; and sketch comedy BBQ Bill.
• Companion interviews and behind-the-scenes segments from CBS entertainment shows, including Survivor, The Late Show with David Letterman and The Amazing Race.
• Streamed episodes of older or failed series, such as the spring drama Love Monkey, last summer's comedy-reality series Fire Me ... Please and shows from Paramount's syndication library, possibly including titles such as I Love Lucy & The Brady Bunch.

The last part of course caught our eye and fits this website. We are all very happy with Warner Bros/AOL's In2TV and we hope Paramount will do something similar with innertube and bring classic TV to the internet. Preferably shows that are not on cable television currently. Webster, Dear John, Get Smart, Honeymooners, Gomer
Pyle, Family Ties
, and Mork & Mindy come to mind?
