'Facts of Life' DVD Extras; Don Knotts on '8 Simple Rules' Rerun Today

We have had so much news this week that we couldn't even fit in The Facts of Life Seasons 1 and 2 DVD news that was made official on Monday. TVShowsonDVD.com announced that it will street on May 9. Here is your first look at the two extras on this set:
• Featurette: Remembering The Facts of Life
• Featurette: After Facts
The runtime of the set has caused a lot of confusion. Sony says 610 minutes on their press website but on the press release they say 707 minutes, which should be the right runtime. 610 minutes would make it less than 22 minutes per episode, hence syndicated episodes. But 707 minutes would be just right at under 25 minutes per episode, which is very right for 1979-81. You can view that press release here. And don't forget to buy a copy when the set comes out because the fans of this show have waited long enough! Visit our Facts of Life page for ordering information and all the details on the set.

Make sure everyone watches a rerun of 8 Simple Rules... today at 4:00 p.m. on Daytime WB. They will be airing the Three's Company-themed episode in which John Ritter's character Paul dreams that his two daughters have moved in with Kyle, a la Three's Company. The late Don Knotts has a cameo at the end of the episode and it is very funny. Yet another way to pay tribute to the legend. And don't forget this weekend on TV Land, it is all Don Knotts as TV Land airs 48 hours of Andy Griffith and Three's Company.

Since it is early, if we have more news, we will come back and add it in. So keep checking back!
