    As I did last month, I wanted to get everyone's take on CBS's announcement of their September releases. If past trending continues, the announcement should come on or around Tuesday the 11th. Here are my own predictions:

    Rawhide - Season 7 (Based on previous spacing of seasons, this is the most predictable choice.)

    Since the spacing between Bonanza, Gunsmoke, and Dynasty would be closer than in the past, I would guess that these are doubtful releases for September.

    The good news then becomes, if they continue their pattern of about 3 releases per month (which is not guarenteed), that should open the door for some stalled series to resume. I personally feel that Love Boat is the most likely culprit. Let's face facts. Why would they remaster 7 seasons if they didn't eventually plan on doing something with them?

    Wildcards IMO - Happy Days, Beverly Hillbillies, Barnaby Jones. I have no good reason on any of these. Just gut feeling that at least one of them will turn up. If not in September, sometime soon.

    Why do you guys think?

    I have all the Love Boat sets that have been put out so far and want to see more seasons released,but I don't think it'll be one of the titles announced for September.The pattern seems to be the last week of January,first week of August. What about the final season of Mork & Mindy? It's a shame that show hasn't been completed yet. It's hard to believe that,of the Garry Marshall big three,Laverne & Shirley is released up to season 6 when it contains almost as much music as Happy Days,while Mork & Mindy has practically no music.

    Isn't there a stray Beatles tune in the final season of Mork and Mindy? I remember reading there was. I don't know if that would be the holdup or not, though.

    The remastering of Love Boat was most likely done for syndication.

    It would be great if CBS resumes the DVD sets with Season 3, but my guess
    is that some kind of a complete set (maybe in two volumes of 5 seasons) is
    something being considered. There are still 8 seasons and a TV movie to
    come, 16 volumes in the current two-part season sets. Could take a long time
    to get the whole thing.

    Of those mentioned make it Barnaby Jones, please. I think it's a likely candidate for release eventually in any case, being as popular and well-remembered as it still is, just can't figure out their disc format intentions for this one.

    I just want to see Laverne & Shirley finish up their series on DVD and hoping for Beverly Hillbillies and PJ and Love, American Style to be released on DVD as well.

    I'm not sure I understand your point, Where is Love Boat being syndicated these days?

    I have no idea. The point I made was that the first 7 seasons of Love Boat
    were remastered, starting in 2001, and are listed in the CBS syndication bible.
    It's not a new thing that Love Boat was remastered, it's not an indication that
    the series is about to come out on dvd.

    ^_^ That's true, unfortunately. Look at Cannon, all that was done for this show was to keep it in a vault as required (one that cracked with a draft even, by the look of it). But no remastering also means there's every reason to keep one's hope up.

    Over at the CBS digital website the latest news at the bottom of the page says remastering is being done on The Honeymooners and the Beverly Hillbillies so maybe more TBH will be coming soon.

    EdG that makes me wonder if the "Honeymooners" (The Classc 39 shows only) will be the next T.V. show to be on Blu-Ray. Over on another thread, I had predicted this show to be the next Blu-Ray release, because of it's popularity and due to the fact there are not as many episodes/seasons. I also am predicting "I Love Lucy" from CBS, however there are more seasons than "The Honeymooners", so I don't know if that would make it for this year. In any case, I hope it will be true for both shows in the very near future (to be on Blu-Ray). :D

    I'm in Hog Heaven seeing The Beverly Hillbillies being advertised as being "restored." Now if they'll get on with that and those folks from Hooterville.....

    Most of the CBS shows I want have been completed (Vega$, Streets, Lucy Show) so I am really only waiting on Petticoat, Beverly and the last 2 seasons of Laverne. If they aren't going to use the original score for My Three Sons, I will stick with my alternate set.

    Ron I wouldn't be surprised at all to see CBS release both Lucy and Honeymooners on Blu-ray along with 1 or 2 of their more popular shows later on. In the meantime, hopefully CBS will be announcing more of Jed and all his kin on DVD.

    Well, the crystal ball did say there would likely be more Hillbillies this year, so here's to hoping!!!

    From what I heard,Mork says a line from a Beatles song. No music is played.

    Well, there you go. Hillbillies... Nope, Love Boat.... Nope, Barnaby Jones...Nope. Instead 2 current dramas that just ended their seasons last month.

    I can hardly control my enthusiasm. LOL

    I'm excited that it seems we're finally getting to the color years. But really? No Petticoat Junction or Barnaby? No Love Boat?
