Get 'Three's Company' Spin-Offs on TV Land; DVD News; Nick at Nite Schedule Change; ABC & Fox Schedule News, Includes Return of Sitcom 'The Loop'

I have moved my Three's Company website Jack's Bistro to right here at Sitcoms Online if you didn't know yet. So update your favorites to this new URL: http://www.sitcomsonline.com/jacksbistro
Anyway, you can make a difference in getting The Ropers and Three's a Crowd on TV Land! This is very imperative...if you want both The Ropers and Three's a Crowd on TV Land, please call 1-212-846-2550 and press 1. Then, please leave a message saying that you thank TV Land for airing Three's Company, but you'd like to see all the episodes of The Ropers and Three's a Crowd also on TV Land, even if it is on the weekends only. This is very important, because they DO have the rights to air both series. Let your voice be heard, use those cellphones! Call today...I'm serious! I have more news on Three's Company at Jack's Bistro in the news section, including something from DLT Entertainment regarding the spin-offs on DVD. Go head over there!

Well, I'll spill some of that news here, too regarding Three's Company. Remember that Capturing the Laughter: Jack's Favorites DVD set that Anchor Bay released a few weeks ago? Well, they were also supposed to release a Janet's Episodes set on that day but they delayed it. It was supposed to be a Best Buy exclusive. Now we have a new update! It will street on May 1 and it will be nationwide...not just Best Buy! No details yet on the episodes and if any extras are on it, but check back to Jack's Bistro soon.
In other DVD news, a few weeks back we mentioned The Cosby Show Seasons 3 AND 4 will be released in June by First Look Studios. Now we have a date. Both will be out June 5. That is not official, but very likely it is June 5. Can't wait for more Huxtable family fun!

Nick at Nite has made more changes. This time starting Monday, Feb. 26. Sun-Thurs, except Tuesday at 9:00PM Full House replaces Growing Pains and Fri-Sat at 10:00PM Full House replaces Growing Pains. So, Growing Pains will now just air Sun-Thurs, but Tuesday at 9:30pm and Fri-Sat at 10:30pm. No late night airings.
The schedule effect. Feb. 26 is now Full House/Growing Pains to start each night (Sun-Thurs 9-10pm and Fri-Sat 10-11pm). Nick at Nite movie airs Tuesdays 9-11pm. Roseanne airs 10-11pm Sun-Thurs, but Tues. Fresh Prince is 11p-12a every night and The Cosby Show is 12-1am every night. And now marathons are 1-5:30am every night. Mon: Roseanne, Tues: Cosby Show, Wed: Fresh Prince, Thurs: Roseanne, Fri: Cosby Show, Sat: Fresh Prince, Sun: Roseanne.
And Full House airs 5:30am every day. Will we see more changes? Probably. This is just getting annoying.

ABC has announced one of its spring premieres and a return of another show. New drama series October Road will premiere Thursday, March 15 from 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET. Current timeslot occupant, Men In Trees will return in this timeslot in six weeks following an initial run of the new series.
In addition, rookie drama Six Degrees will return with seven original episodes in a new timeslot, Fridays at 9:00 p.m., as of Friday, March 23.
Still no news on new drama Traveler and new sitcom Notes from the Underbelly. I'm hearing April for Traveler when rookie sitcom The Knights of Prosperity finishes its 13-episode season (which will be after its March 28 airing).
As for Fox, they have announced some summer news. From Mark Burnett, Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Television, On the Lot affords aspiring filmmakers the opportunity of a lifetime: a $1-million DreamWorks development deal. The show will premiere with a one-hour auditions episode on Wednesday, May 16 following American Idol. A special two-hour Film Premiere episode, featuring the first films produced by the 16 finalists, will air Monday, May 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Four finalists will be eliminated from the competition the following night on the first Box Office results show Tuesday, May 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). On the Lots weekly Film Premiere episodes air in their regular time period beginning Monday, June 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and the weekly Box Office results shows will air on Tuesdays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) starting Tuesday, June 5.
Season Three of reality show So You Think You Can Dance premieres with two audition episodes: a one-hour show on Thursday, May 24 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and a special two-hour episode airing Wednesday, May 30 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Once the dance auditions conclude, weekly performance shows will air on Wednesdays (starting at 8:00 PM ET/PT), and weekly results shows will air on Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
FOX's sitcom The Loop comes back around for its second season premiere Sunday, June 10 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).
Finally, Season Three of reality hit Hells Kitchen premieres Monday, June 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
