SitcomsOnline Digest: TV Guide's 60 Greatest TV Series; Warner Archive January Release News


Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! We've got a very quiet week around here as everybody seems to be taking a Christmas break, but we've got a light dosage of holiday news for you. Let's get going!


HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB
  • What week would be complete without another TV Guide's "best of" list? This week, it is their list of the 60 greatest TV series ever (not the first ever list of this type they've ever had, but we digress). We can't help but to wonder, though, if Breaking Bad really has the staying power of being number nine. (TV Guide)
  • Orange is the New Black has been a hit for Netflix, but nobody really knows how many people actually are viewing it. According to series creator Jenji Kohan, even she doesn't know exactly what the "ratings" are, just that the series is doing well. (Hollywood Reporter)
  • CMT and VH-1 Classic are both showing some love for older TV series, as CMT will be bringing back The Dukes of Hazzard and VH-1 Classic will soon be airing the sitcom Coach. (SitcomsOnline)
  • Earlier this week, we had an interview of Jaleel White (who will be appearing in the Lifetime movie The Wrong Woman, which premieres tonight at 8 PM ET/PT). (SitcomsOnline)

Claim to Fame: Urkel, of course! But he has done so much more, and in fact, he appears in a movie that debuts tonight (December 28) on Lifetime. We encourage you to check out our interview that we did with him earlier this week for more! It is worth noting that he has appeared in other things as well, such as Dancing with the Stars, Syfy series Total Blackout, and will even be appearing in an upcoming CSI episode.
