Anyone think Andy Richter could get a DVD release?

I loved the TV show when it was on Fox and since they bring everything to TV do you think Andy Richter Controls the Universe can make the cut? I'd buy it.

I'm sure it will. Fox'll eventually release it, like Family Guy, and then realize what a big mistake they made... again.

I hope they do. It's my fault it went off, since I hardly ever remembered to watch it when it was on.

I liked the show a lot, but I don't think I'd really care to own it on DVD. I doubt it will ever see the light of day in that format either. Figure the show already didn't have the numbers to stay on the air more than a few months in two different seasons. Then figure that only a percentage of those who did watch would care about DVDs.....it adds up to a pretty small number.

Not necessarily. Even a low-rated network show gets millions of viewers, and a 'cult' show like Andy Richter is certain to have a fiercely loyal (if obviously not Star Trek-sized) fanbase that would be more than willing to plunk down the cash for a home video release. Since there aren't enough episodes for syndication, home video is pretty much the only way to snag any ancillary revenue from the series. I'd say a DVD release is very much a possibility.

maybe even with the episodes Faux didn't show...

Final Fantasy
Saturday Early Evening Fever
Charity Begins in Cellblock D
Bully the Kid
Duh Dog

and to add insult to injury

On June 4th, the show was nominated by the Television Critics Association for "Outstanding Achievement in Comedy", a few days laterr Fox Television's new fall schedule is set, and Andy Richter Controls The Universe is officially cancelled.

I'd definitely buy it. It had a great little ensemble cast and a unique sense of humor. But yeah, I too always forgot to watch it when it was on. I'll head over to tvshowsondvd right now and vote for it.

I think that this is the problem with really good, underated shows.

The viewers with 'taste' for offbeat, truly funny, shows are the viewers who don't watch tv much (due to the lack of quality shows). Thus, they forget to watch it.

But then, the viewers that lack 'taste' are the people show sit around and watch tv all the time. Thus, cliche sitcoms (in my opinion, Dharma and Greg, Will and Grace, Just Shoot Me, etc) are the ones bringing in the good ratings.

Am I right?

How many Family Guy, Futurama, and Andy Richter fans (you don't have to see every episode to be a fan) out there are the sort of people that sit around and watch six hours of television every day?

How many Dharma and Greg, Will and Grace, and Just shoot me fans out there RARELY watch television?

I think you have something there. I rarely watch TV and I very often forget to watch the few shows I actually like. Its the people that religiously watch TV that have the entire week's prime-time schedule memorized, because I sure as hell don't.

To answer the question: No.

But does that mean I wouldn't buy it if they did..? No. I would most definitely buy it.

And i'm hoping Family Guy is the standard that all studio execs think about in the future when they wonder whether or not to put a "niche" show on DVD...

Is there anywhere we can start a petition to get the ball rolling?

Also Sports Night was a great show, all the critics loved it, yet it just didn't get enough viewership to stay on the air.

If by some miracle it does get a DVD release, I hope they pull a "Homicide" and have all the episodes in the order of their production and not when they aired.

Trust me, it'll be released. More later than sooner. When it was on the air I recall seeing ads where Critics and Mags were raving about the show and for some time, Fox seemed pretty proud of it. As more under-rated-short-lived-tvshows get a home video release, you'll probobly hear something about Andy Richter.
