    Strange thing; in the TV series Roseanne, Roseanne & Dan Connor are fat, but their fat isn't an issue, and no episode focuses on it. What's the deal with Mike & Molly?

    CBS has resumed Laverne & Shirley with season 6. http://tvshowsondvd.com/news/Laverne-Shirley-Season-6/18094 Does any else think that maybe something is planned for Love Boat, like a licence deal for the entire series? Otherwise, why are there no seasons coming? Even Fantasy Island has seen new releases, I'm hoping that something is in the works for Love Boat, now at the top of my most wanted series list.

    I'd like to see more Love Boat and I'm concerned that Shout isn't announcing S4 of Fantasy Island yet.

    I think they should sub-license it out to Shout! Factory, it would be a good fit now that they are also releasing Fantasy Island (another Spelling show). I doubt that they would do a complete series set but it is puzzling why they have not released any other seasons- did the first two seasons not sell very well?!
    On the topic of Shout!, it appears that Webster has stalled out- season 4 was released over a year ago and there has been no news on any further seasons. Oh well, at least 4 of the 6 seasons have been released on DVD.

    That early announcement of licensed releases of Diagnosis Murder and The Mod Squad, if they should come to fruition, would be a great source of hope for some stalled series like The Love Boat. Alternatively, if the MOD program starts moving closer to the end of Cannon, Becker, and Dave's World, that might be another good sign for those stalled series.

    I thought I read in another thread that Sony was going back to releasing their own shows, which means that they would be responsible for releasing the rest of Fantasy Island, not Shout! Factory. Please let me know if I'm wrong.

    I'm all for Shout! getting on board and setting sail with season 3, or I'd buy a complete series from someone to do it like Time Life has with their great complete series sets. If the previous two seasons of Love Boat didn't sell that well, it might have something to do with the split season sets. It gets pretty expensive that way, which could turn off some buyers. That said, it's hard to imagine that the other series that CBS has restarted, like Dynasty, Bonanza, and Gunsmoke have sold so much better than what Love Boat might sell that those series are continuing deep into later seasons, and Love Boat gets nothing? It's hard to say. I'm hoping that the reason we've had no news on Love Boat is that something like a complete set is in the works. There are a lot of seasons unreleased, and restarting it a half season at a time would take forever (and likely never) to reach the end.

    With the new site, old posts are not open to editing, so I will update this list from here. Lots of continuing movement at CBS/Paramount and I am hopeful that as various series finish, others will restart. The MOD program is still going very slowly, but perhaps it will gather steam as the Warner Archive did.

    CBS HE updated their cover photo on Facebook the other day and I distinctly remember seeing Barnaby Jones pictured in the photo as was (I think) The Love Boat. Maybe they're unstalling those? If I can't get Uncle Jed, I'll settle for Barnaby!!!

    I'll certainly settle for more Barnaby Jones as well. And I know a good friend of mine here would be pretty happy if more Love Boat were announced. ;)

    I'm just hoping CBS HE will continue with those shows that have just one season remaining and complete those and then focus on the older comedies and definitely in for more Love Boat and Love, American Style as well.

    I think I'm getting ready to get into PM now that it's going to be finished up. Some of the early half-season sets are dirt cheap over on Amazon now.

    Perhaps with the recent passing of Jonathan Winters CBS may decide to finally release the last season of Mork & Mindy. Sad if that what it takes but I do want the final season.

The MOD program is still moving slowly from CBS/Paramount, but it is moving. In terms of series that are not current or not under their Nickelodeon division, they have only released sets of Dave's World, Becker, and Cannon. However, Dave's World and Becker are now within one release of completion. As those series come to an end on MOD, I hope the studio looks at the "stalled" list for some other titles to take their places.

VEI promises complete series sets of the latter two series, so if and when those are announced officially, that will complete two more series on the list.

    Richard Diamond was produced by Four Star, so it's actually owned by Fox, so you can forget about that studio releasing or licensing it out!

    It isn't quite that bleak...the Four Star library is divided by era. The earlier stuff didn't go to Fox, so things like Trackdown and Richard Diamond are held separately. The later stuff, however, like The Rogues, is trapped in Fox purgatory though.

    I heard it was because of the Hey Jude scene, but since CBS released the first season in California for Laverne and Shirley, and they eradicated the usage of "Yesterday" (Beatles problem) AND eliminated an important scene because of other music references (getting rid of an entire scene/joke "problem"), I guess they could try.
