NEWHART: The Complete Second Season

Has anyone read or heard talk of the release for the second season of NEWHART on DVD? I bought season one a few years ago and have been patiently waiting for the second season. Thanks everyone.

I emailed Fox a bit over a year ago about this title. The reply was a "It's not on the schedule and there are no plans" type. I've not had the heart to ask again. They abandoned "The Bob Newhart Show" with only 2 seasons left and I doubt they have any interest in continuing "Newhart" either, in spite of it running longer and having better overall ratings. I feel S1 sold poorly as many people really didn't "jump on" the series until the Stephanie years - S2 and on. Kind of like the Markie Post on Night Court scenario. I'd pick up either series continuation on release day to show support and encourage more.

Fox seems to have given up on TBNS, as well as two other favorites of mine (The Big Valley and The Fall Guy). Mary Tyler Moore had been on that list, but thankfully it was recently completed. I'm still hoping Shout Factory will pick up where Fox left off on these incomplete classics.

This should have been either a complete series set, had the first two seasons released at once, or released in reverse order. I was hoping Shout! Factory would do the abandoned MTM shows (i.e. everything not starring the company's founder other than Remington Steele) once they did Rhoda, but their Fox releases have stalled. The two Bob Newhart sitcoms are classics that deserve to be released in their entirety.
Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.
