    Since I did one on CBS, I thought I would follow up with one on Warner's as well. If we update for the Maverick 4 and Courtship 3, here is what is left in their current rotation:

    FBI - 3 seasons unreleased

    Daktari - 2 Seasons unreleased

    Medical Center - 4 Seasons unreleased

    Kildare - 3 Seasons unreleased

    Alice - 5 Seasons unreleased

    Falcon Crest - 6? Seasons unreleased

    Maverick - 1 Season unreleased

    So, what should we expect? Do they just hold steady rotating these and maybe throw in a surprise one and done show? Do they finally start bringing out some of the big 4 early 60's detective shows as has been rumoured? What about some wildcards? What are some possibilities?

    I wouldn't hold my breath for any of the detective shows. Just too much music I think. So here go my predictions:

    Mr. Novak
    Cain's Hundred
    Please Don't Eat The Daisies
    Travels of Jamie McPheeters
    Hondo
    Bronk
    Jericho
    The Practice
    Beyond Westworld

    Now, for the ones I would hope to see but are highly unlikely:

    Hank
    The Little People
    Many Happy Returns
    Hot Pursuit
    Adam's Rib
    Doc Elliot
    Kaz
    Sam Benedict

    I think we'll be seeing more TV movies coming next year, vintage stuff I hope, they mentioned so recently that they intend to. It'd also be brilliant if they brought us some of their short-lived series if they can, I'd suggest the law dramas Kaz and The Mississippi (one and two seasons), should be a quick job with those out and done.

    Well, WB on their website confirmed that season 5 of MAVERICK would be released, so that should be a done deal.

    They also confirmed that sometime after season 5, the two spinoff series YOUNG MAVERICK and BRET MAVERICK would be released. Don't know if both will come out in 2014, but I am sure hoping so!

    I just hope that they continue to release more of the WB westerns!

    "The Eleventh Hour" was a title I asked about more than a year ago on Facebook in addition to "Cain's Hundred" and "Jericho" and they said eventually yes to all of them. "Then Came Bronson" has music clearance problems so that won't be out anytime soon,.

    I'll take a stab and list the show I'd W-A-N-T Warners to release (so I guess this isn't a prediction as much as it is a wish list). In no particular order:

    The Dakotas
    The Alaskans
    The Roaring 20's
    Mr. Novak
    Jamie McPheeters
    The Islanders
    National Velvet


    Gary "I'd be happy if any of those were released" O.

    I'll throw in a few suggestions for the WA.
    Father of The Bride (1961-62 CBS)
    Temple Houston (1963-64 NBC)
    A Man Called Shenadoah (!965-66 ABC)
    GE True (1962-63 CBS)
    All one and done here, maybe Shenadoah stands as having the best shot here!

    Since Shenandoah ran on TNT, we know there are remasters existing so that should be an easy one for them to do.

    I'd imagine they'd keep that section to a limit. The big rights issues ones are no doubt later on the line, as the easier ones and one and done runs no doubt will probably be used to fund in part towards the bigger problem ones.

    7 long runners and the occasional one and done is a fair group for them to be working with. Of course this could launch the debates on which part of the library model people prefer but overall i'd say it's fairly distributed.

    I'd guess there's always the possibility of the MGM-produced THE THIN MAN series getting a spot on the schedule... unless somehow the couple of episodes that were included as bonus material on in the THIN MAN movie collection box set and FORBIDDEN PLANET were "one-off" remasters, rather than the entire series getting transferred from film. I forget if the show was ever aired in the early days of either the TNT network, Turner South, and/or on TCM.

    Since Warner Home Video has abandoned Welcome Back Kotter and only
    released a best of Chico and the Man,they could release these two with Warner
    Archive.

    From hints on FB page:

    The rest of Maverick and Sugarfoot
    Bronco
    77 Sunset Strip

    My own guesses:
    Lawman
    Hawaiian Eye
    Jericho
    The Alaskans
    Welcome Back Kotter

    I'm confident their total number of TV releases will increase from what was released in 2013

    Here's one I haven't seen mention of. Lady Blue. I just started watching them as I've been transferring them over and it was a TV female version of Dirty Harry. Quite sure, given the politcal bent of most of the posters here, that this show would have an appeal. Pretty redhead with a big gun, blowing away bad guys like crazy. One of the last shows before Turner bought MGM.

    Randy, I sure hope that the FB hint about 77 Sunset strip is true and of course I'm with you about your guess about Hawaiian Eye
