    I've been wondering the same thing. Maybe it's dead in the water, either for this year or permanently. I hope not. Maybe they're having difficulties with the material from the earlier seasons. Hopefully, we'll still get it in time for Christmas this year.

    Thanks rmw650! However, I think the tvshowsondvd.com post said the date amazon put on their website was incorrect (it was premature, before the official announcement). In any case, at least there is a nice picture of what the DVD looks like (so it most likely going to happen this year.....I'm just still questioning the date?). Hopefully it is October 1, 2013!
    :)

    What's also weird is that Star Vista (Time Life) does not list this release at all on their website. I just hope it's coming sooner, rather than later, if it's coming at all. I'm always up for more Carol Burnett Show on dvd.

    Yes, but this list does not include the exclusives offered by Costco and Walmart, right? That was sort of the point of the inquiry.

    Yes, the list is older and I have not been able to confirm for myself that there are indeed episodes exclusive to Costco and Walmart sets. Sorry. Anyone is free to add those releases to the list if they have the time.

    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.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Carol-Burnett-Christmas-with-Carol/18970

    Okay, after researching this a bit more, I have updated my schedule of released episodes. TL has released a total of 4 episodes in retailer exclusive sets that were NOT a part of the mega boxset. One of these 4 episodes has never been on dvd before at all, while the other 3 had been released on the Columbia House dvds.The COSTCO exclusive set had 2 bonus episodes, which included the previously unreleased episode #604, with Anthony Newley and Bernadette Peters, which is now the earliest episode available on dvd. The other episode is #819, which was on CH set #22.The WALMART exclusive set contained the new to TL episodes #905 (Cher) and #916 (Rita Moreno), which were on the CH discs #24 and #27, respectively.These are the only new content to date, as far as I can tell. All other retail sets are merely different permutations of the previously released TL content, including extras that were on the TL bonus discs.

    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.com/TheCarolBurnettShow#!/photo.php?fbid=419114724861274&set=a.282557201850361.55327.235761303196618&type=1&theaterIn 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:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D2UMHD8/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    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.

    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'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!!!)
