That would finish up both Kildare and Spenser and get to the halfway point with Lawman. I'm really surprised we haven't seen the next to last season on Medical Center already.

Randy, I hope you are right on Alice season 5. It's been a while and it's the last really good season. IMO. Thye can happily stall the Jolene years as far as I'm concerned.

I really did expect we might see some movement with WHV this year (Starting Chico, Continuing Mayberry, etc.) but it doesn't look as though that will happen.

I really hope September - November might bring us one of those one season gems we have been expecting (Hank, Sam Benedict)

You would think that if you are correct they should be adding a couple more shows into the rotation as with those predictions you made, it would leave for 2016:


Lawman - 2 seasons remaining

Medical Center - 1 season remaining

Growing Pains - 2 seasons remaining (although I think they release season 6 yet this year)

George Lopez - 1 season remaining

Falcon Crest - Stalled

Alice - Stalled


Since the only new show we are fairly certain they are starting next year is Colt 45, that leaves quite a few holes for some multiple season shows in 2016. Im really hoping that means next year is finally the year for the detective series, Mr Novak, or Thin Man.

I would say these that you mentioned are strong possibilities for next year at least a couple of them anyway: detective series, Mr Novak, or Thin Man.

The key for me is that for the above series they continue to acknowledge music issues but also that they are working to clear them while other shows they simply mention clearance issues prevent us from releasing this show. Which sounds much more final to me. If they had given up on Detective shows, Mr. Novak and Thin Man I think the answer would be the same. I just can't see them continue to work on clearing these shows spending both time and money if they didn't believe they could clear them. Of course its possible that they may eventually release them in a music compromised version as well but they are certainly doing everything they can to avoid that.

Another one season show: The Alaskans has been rumored for next year.

Concerning Alice I just consider it a remote possibility late this year. They certainly haven't indicated it is coming yet.

I thought Mayberry was a CBS/Paramount series?

How The West Was Won seems to be stalled with one season remaining.


They have been streaming McClain's Law for quite a while. I have been hoping for a DVD release of this one-season show with only about 16 episodes.

Mr. Novak and the Thin Man are MGM properties, like Medical Center, Dr. Kildare, and The Lieutenant--those don't seem to have had any music rights issues, like the Warner shows.


ETA: just saw Neil's post about the two-parter Novak, so maybe it is an issue. Certainly not as problematic as the song-laden WB shows, though.

WA has stated on FB that Thin Man and Mr. Novak have rights issues. They did not clarity what the rights issues are on Thin Man but did acknowledge its 2 episodes in Mr. Novak as you noted.

Nope Mayberry R.F.D. Season 1 was released by WHV and is stalled. It has been long expected that it will continue with warner archive but no movement yet. Only Andy Griffith show was CBS/Paramount.

Lawman had 4 seasons from 1958-1962.

HTWWW was a Warner Home Video release and is still with them but it is possible that they could turn the final season over to Warner Archive.

Does Warner's own the rights to Dr.Kildare season 5?(half-hours) I've seen overseas broadcasts distributed by Republic - which owns the old NTA library which was NBC films.

Dear Neil,

That's a enough to keep the WB Archives busy for four years at least. And that's not counting their animated series.

My mother asks me every so often about The Thin Man. I'd love to be able to get that for her.

I had wondered the same thing but apparently they do. Hank was another show distributed internationally by Republic but the rights are with Warner.

Neil ,
Thanks for posting the list .
Do you think there's any chance for shows like Room For One More , Father Of the Bride , Please Don't Eat The Daisies, Many Happy Returns to be released on Warner's Archive program?

I have my fingers crossed!

I've been waiting for Please Don't Eat the Daisies on DVD for years. I do know that the Righteous Brothers appear on a Season 2 episode and perform a couple of songs, so that is probably what is holding up its release.

Music clearance issues are problematic for a lot of shows. It's the reason we may never see the WB detective shows on DVD.

But you would think that the 2 songs on PDETD should be fairly easy to work out . But then again Universal wasn't able to release the Munsters episode with the Standells unedited , so who knows.

Let's hope we all of the shows on Neil's list someday.

So do I. Room for One More was one of my biggest wants for years. Luckily I was able to get all but 2 episodes when the Warner 16mm prints flooded the market in the early 90s. Of the 4 shows you mentioned, I would think PDETD has the best chance since its 2 seasons and in color. Black and white one-season sitcoms are very scarce as legitimate releases.

I was able to get a complete run of PDETD, and most of Room For One More . It was a favorite of mine during the 1961 -62 season. So was Father of the Bride, but I've only been able to locate one episode of that show . The star Myrna Fahey, pops up in a lot of TV series , everything from Batman to Maverick to Zorro.
