yay! Ed is coming back..now I just hope NBC repeats the first two seasons so I can catch up.. [or, even better, puts 'em out on DVD]

the only thing that bugs me is the 8pm time slot..I think someone on here posted a link to an article that stated Ed was more of a "9pm" show and that's one of the reasons that it improved so much on Fridays..

and I really don't like the L&O:SVU move to tuesdays..

but hey! choosers can't be beggars..i'm just glad Ed's back. hell, i'm glad Boomtown's back. i don't watch the show [i pissed myself off by missing the marathon that bravo ran] but i'm just glad they're not being replaced by a damn reality show..

to both. Those are the only two shows I watched on a weekly basis last year. Well really only Boomtown as I missed more than half of Ed.

With Buffy going bye-bye, Friends going poo-poo, and Ed looking like it was a goner, I thought TV might be close to over in my household.

I'm grateful to be getting my Ed back. I want to see an entire year of Ed and Carol getting busy. Once for every waffle Ed threw on Carol's roof.

Isn't 4 years now the magic number of seasons for syndication eligibility? Or is it 5? I'd love to see old Ed reruns for the next ten years of my life. Or a release of all the seasons on DVD. Actually, both would be nice.

But syndication would be great for everyone. The cast would get more bank and they all deserve it. I also hope the show and cast get some more support and promotion from NBC next season.

And I hope we get more Shirley and more Stella next season.

Thank you NBC!

for all of us who want ed on dvd, here is a tidbit.

over at the FAQ section of www.stuckeyville.com, they say that ed is not due for release until a year after the series ends due to a contract thing of some sort. if true, that is a really REALLY dumb move.

Agreed.

Hell, they were advertising for Kingpin & that Muppet Christmas thingie during the broadcasts..

Question: is Ed an "in house" NBC production?

No - it's produced by Letterman's production company, Worldwide Pants. They also produce Everybody Loves Raymond.

My feelings exactly! I'm a little worried about what happens now that Ed and Carol are together, but it couldn't get worse than those last few episodes with Dennis.

As for the syndication question, it seems to be when shows start their 5th season...but how many hour long shows do you see in syndication? I think Ed reruns will end up on cable after it's all over.
