Well, just as I thought....The Carol Burnett Christmas DVD is not going to be released on 9/30 (as indicated on Amazon) and it's not going to be released on 10/1 either. Technically this title has not been officially announced by Star Vista, and it looks as though it will be several weeks after the date listed on Amazon. Tvshowsondvd.com confirms this:

http://www.tvshowson...ith-Carol/18970

I saw Walmart.com still has it listed for 10/1/2013, but Amazon.com still has the incorrect date listed as 9/30/2013, but we'll see in two weeks time what happens with this title, but Amazon.com is supposed to change the date after alerting them to the error.

As an update to my original post, BN.com also has the wrong date listed as 9/30/2013 (see here...http://www.barnesand...an=610583461299) when it's supposed to be out on 10/1/2013, so I did let Amazon know of this error and they told me, in format content, that they will check with their distributors to officially confirm the date for this title. Will keep you guys and gals posted.

Yeah!  The Alan Alda episode is a favorite of mine.

This will bring the total of TCBS episodes on dvd to 73 (although 4 of them are missing their musical finales).  I hope there is more to come!  Plus, it's always a treat to see some of the early sketches.

Well to add more confusion to the release date for "Christmas With Carol", today, THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW OFFICIAL FACEBOOK page showed a pictured of the upcoming release with the date of October 1,2013. I responded to them to let them know that tvshowsondvd.com have reported it as November 12, 2013 (as I stated in the above quote on this forum). However, the TCBS Official Facebook page came back and stated they have confirmed with everyone (?) and it is October 1st. I don't know WHO they confirmed with, but obviously, it was not tvshowsondvd.com. Here is the link to the facebook page:

https://www.facebook...rolBurnettShow#!/photo.php?fbid=419114724861274&set=a.282557201850361.55327.235761303196618&type=1&theater

In any case, I preordered my DVD on Amazon (who also still has the release date of September 30, 2013). I preordered it cause the price was good ($7.96 + shipping). So, if I should get my DVD on October 1st or November 12th, I will keep you guys posted. This has been the most confusing released date for a tv show I have come across with in a long time!!! Here is the link to amazon, if you want the good deal at amazon:

MRZ7, keep me posted on this title as I don't even know who to believe anymore when it comes out to releases.

 

Where did TVshowsondvd.com get their information from anyways? They're really slacking as of late and that's not a good thing at their end.

I'd put my money on TvShowsOnDvd.com, as their info was the official press release from StarVista/Time-Life.  The Carol Burnett Show page on FB has some other misinformation posted about which episodes TL has released.

Did anyone who pre-ordered this from Amazon get the email today that this item shipped w/a guaranteed arrival date of Monday, September 30th?

No chadHobbick, I haven't received an email from Amazon yet.  However, Tvshowsondvd.com now have this title on their release schedule for September 30th.  I am wondering why Tvshowsondvd.com did not report the news of the date changing from 11/12/13, like they reported earlier.  Here's the link to their release schedule:

For the release date of 9/30, all pre-orders would have shipped in order to be received on Monday.  You could track them online.

I couldn't figure that out wither as I would have guessed they would have been alerted to the correction but they sometimes post up stuff late and miss an item or update here and there. But yes, this is coming out on Tuesday 10/1/2013 and can't wait to get it. Will this also be available at the retailers as well, in addition to online? That's like a 50-50 thing happening and don't forget TBH and PJ Seasons 4 & 3 respectively will be at both Wal-mart and Sam's Club this Tuesday as well.

I'm going to spin it tonight, just to make sure there are no "edits" like there were with some of the episodes in the mega collection.

Much to my surprise.....my DVD came a day earlier than I expected (Thank you Amazon).  I have already watched the entire DVD......this is a definite must for Carol Burnett Show fans!!! There are 2 full shows (that include a "Family" Sketch (featuring Alan Alda) and a "Wiggins & Tudball" skit (one that I have never seen before!!!).  Also enjoyed the bonus sketches that feature the Charwoman singing "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and another skit featuring a very comedic song call "The Twelve Days AFTER Christmas" (sung by Carol).  A very nice treat and entertaining DVD  (Highly recommend for a great stocking stuffer this Christmas!!!)
