Coming to DVD Rumor: Sports Night 10th Anniversary Edition

One of my all-time favorite TV shows is SPORTS NIGHT, which I discovered via DVD, several years after its brief two-season run.

This show, a behind-the-scenes look at the crew producing a cable sports news show, is beloved by many -- check out the 8.7 IMDb rating. It has a superb cast, including Felicity Huffman, Peter Krause, Joshua Malina, and Robert Guillaume. SPORTS NIGHT was created by Aaron Sorkin just prior to his success with THE WEST WING. It's a shame the show didn't run a few more seasons.

TV Shows on DVD passes on the rumor that a 10th Anniversary DVD set is coming this September, complete with extras, which were nonexistent on the original release.

If this comes to pass and the extras are good, I'll seriously consider buying the new set, as my original purchase is currently living in a college dorm room.

If you haven't yet watched this show, I highly recommend it. I do suggest trying several episodes to decide what you think of it, as unlike WEST WING, it wasn't "together" from the pilot episode; the show took a few weeks to find its rhythm. The original SPORTS NIGHT DVD is out of print, but it appears to be available via Netflix if you can't wait for September.
