I don't understand why TV Land keeps airing all these reality shows. ALF's Talk Show, I Pity the Fool, Farrah's Show... didn't all these shows get cancelled after only one season? What's the point?

Well, to play devil's advocate...

At the rate that old sitcoms are being turned into season long DVD's, at some point we will most likely have access to all of our favorite shows. TV Land will have to come up with some sort of programing to generate revenue. Since i have L&S S1 on DVD, I don't watch/TiVO those eps on LRW anymore, and when i get S2 (14 glorious days, people!) I won't watch/TiVo S2 either. I know that at some point all sitcoms that last for more than two seasons will at some point become "classic" and there will be a small bit of new programing, but if TV Land can squeeze even a handful of ratings out of a cheap to shoot reality show, it's in their best interest to do so financially.

My two cents,

That's true. Almost all of my favorite shows are available on dvd. However, I'd say that less than 10% of the people who like a certain show, such as L&S will go out and buy the season sets. Most people would rather just watch the show on tv. A lot of shows like Three's Company, Sanford and Son, MASH and Friends are complete on dvd and yet they still do very well in the ratings. I have all the Three's Company season sets and I still watch it on TV Land once in a while.

As much as I hate reality shows, it bugs me that the reality shows that TV Land produces only last for a season. If they're going to have reality shows, at least bring some of them back for a second season. The fact of the matter is if any of those reality shows were getting "even a handful of ratings" they'd still be on the air. I just feel that TV Land is trying to compete since reality shows are so popular but they keep failing every single time and it doesn't make any sense to me.

Does anyone know when this is supposed to start?

Probably in the Fall, I am so excited for this. I only wish it was a NEW Laverne and Shirley series, or a movie to tie up loose ends

Well, Lifetime Real Women will no longer be airing L&S as of early June, so there MIGHT be hope of a marathon or SOMETHING to kickstart the show. At least we can keep our fingers crossed for such a thing... it's always great when a new group of viewers can be exposed to the original show.

As for "Penny & Cindy," I'm actually getting increasingly more on-board with the idea. Granted, TV Land doesn't have a great track record with reality shows (and I honestly don't expect this one to be any different) - but I still agree with the fact that Penny & Cindy are both interesting individuals, and I'll be tuning in to see the dynamics of their relationship (I think they do have great comedic chemistry). For me, anything that increases the visibility of the original L&S, and which gives L&S fans something to talk about, is a good thing. We've been living off N@N/Lifetime reruns, the same old cast interviews, and the handful of old reunion shows that are out there for long enough.. I'm ready for some new L&S-related entertainment.
