a decent sitcom from the 1980's in syndication? too good to be true, I bet we won't even get to the non-DVD episodes, but I'm hoping.

It's good the show will be getting national exposure again. I wonder if this will help Sony get off its behind and release more seasons on DVD

Gosh, I love BET now.

It's been many, many years since DS aired regularly on a national channel. I believe the last time was on N@N in the 2000-2001 era. Or maybe it spent some time on TVLand since then?

Actually, I'm pretty sure the last time it was on national TV was in 2001-2002 on TNN, now Spike TV.

I am lucky enough to already have it on Peachtree and I've been recording them all incase the DVDs never get released.

Now, with it also on BET, I guess it's just the more the merrier

I was actually about to get BET off my digital tv because I have a package where you pick certain channels and I was thinking to replace BET since I watch it for a music video about 3 times a year lol.

Definetly keeping the channel now!

Great News about Different Strokes, great Addition by BET instead of the UPN/CW Leftovers. Can't wait to set the recorder

Ooooh yeah, I forgot all about it being on TNN. Actually, for a second, I forgot TNN even showed old TV shows after it stopped being The Nashville Network. If I remember right...there was DS, and "Three's Company," and "Newhart," and "WKRP in Cincinnati," and "The Wonder Years," and I even think I remember "Taxi" too.

Great news as far as I am concerned. Let's just hope they don't edit them to shreds.

Now I don't know what BET editing style is like since this will be my first time watching a sitcom on the network since 1994

BET didn't do that good of a job with 227 and Amen...they would like end the closing theme before it ended. But at least they aired the shows.

Here is more to wet all of your appetites...Diff'rent Strokes and Malcolm & Eddie are being added to weekdays, but there will be some more sitcoms coming in March during the weekends. I won't reveal what they are today, you'll have to wait until tomorrow on the blog, but Solomon will be happy tomorrow!

As for ION, you never know, they could air Diff'rent Strokes...it is possible. Raymond and Seinfeld are not what they are after, those would be impossible for them to get. Besides the MASH deal, their shows are shows that really haven't aired much lately (Drew Carey, Baywatch).
