I am curious as to what the studios look at in deciding what tv shows they release. My example is FOX. I understand why they are releasing "24". They were trying to recoup money spent on the show and to try to pull in new viewers. But, why "Malcolm in the Middle" and not say "Married with Children"? Now, I don't care which one is released. But, I figured that Married would have a bigger following. I just wonder if newer syndication deals are allowing studios to release shows on dvd before they are fully aired in syndication? If true then maybe we can expect more shows to be released after one season or when the shows are finished.
