'Three's Company' Season 7 DVD Details, Sneak Peek at Season 8; TV Land July Details; Paul Goebel Podcast; and 'Scrubs' Soundtrack

Fellow Three's Company fans will be proud that Anchor Bay will be paying tribute to Don Knotts with an all-new memorial tribute to the late actor on the season 7 DVD. The full list of extras are:
- Don Knotts: A Tribute
- Parlez-Vous Three's Company?
- Best of Jack: Season 7
- Best of Janet: Season 7
- Best of Terri: Season 7
- Best of Larry: Season 7
- Audio Commentary with Richard Kline
You can find the box art and case art also on my news section and DVD sets section on my Three's Company page. The set comes out July 25 and this is your first look at the art and extras! You can discuss your thoughts about the art and extras, here. Also, I have a sneak peek at the release date for the 8th and final season which will be coming to DVD on October 10! Hopefully Anchor Bay releases the two spin-offs, The Ropers & Three's a Crowd, too. I will be on top of that if that happens. For all the details visit the news section and DVD sets section on my Three's Company page.

TV Land July will introduce the launch of '80s sitcom 227. The sitcom is getting a soft launch, with no marathon and just an afternoon slot of 12:30 p.m. weekdays. This summer TV Land will introduce Friday Night Movies for July & August. They will showcase big blockbuster movies from the '70s and '80s, along with a reairing of the behind the scenes TV-movie of Three's Company from 2003. Also, TV Land will air new episode of My First Time on Wednesdays all month long. And finally to celebrate TV Land's newest Top 10 episode, they will air a 48-hour marathon of The Brady Bunch in anticipation of the Top 10 Brady Moments. TV Land weekends are also back to the regular schedule. You can find all that and more HERE.

The Weezy and The Swish show has Paul Goebel as its guest. Paul is of course a good friend of ours and is the King of Television appearing on many movies and TV shows such as Comedy Central's Beat the Geeks. He has lots of knowledge about television and was TV Land's Ultimate Fan for its second (and final) search. He is on episode 49 of the show: Podcast 49 features Paul The King of TV who brings his wealth of television trivia knowledge to Weezy and The Swish. Can anyone in the studio or the chat room stump The King of TV with a trivia question? It's not very likely since Paul has developed a theory that everyone on television can be connected to Henry Winkler with under six degrees of separation. Laura challenges Paul to connect Henry to Desi Arnaz and Paul does it in under four degrees. He's that good. In other surprising connections, Paul's upcoming stage show will feature guest Robbie Rist who starred in Kid Video which also starred a friend of Weezy's who we called and who just happened to be home. Prepare to be delighted with this and other nuggets of joy as you listen to Episode 49 of Weezy and The Swish. You can listen to it here.


The digital release of Scrubs, Vol. 2, the companion album to the hit NBC comedy, is available NOW exclusively through iTunes. The soundtrack is featured on the site’s TV Show section – a first for the mega-popular music online destination.
The cutting-edge album spotlights the best musical moments from the Emmy award-winning series. “Scrubs has been a music-driven show from the beginning,” says the series creator, Bill Lawrence. “The writers and actors on the show have taken pride in seeing bands and finding new music and we hope people enjoy it as much as we do.” Adds Scrubs producer Randall Winston, "there are very few artists on our soundtrack that have not become part of the Scrubs family.”
