    (This topic also had been raised, previously, in the "The Official New TV Show" thread, which I belatedly discovered. But perhaps this show deserves its own, separate mention.)

    Will it be available anywhere else? I don’t have Spectrum.

    I've never even heard of Spectrum. Is that a channel? I just did a search for the show on my TiVo. It came up, but it shows as "Not Currently Available". So does this mean that there is no way for me to watch it tomorrow?

    I hope that it is available by magical means.

    It's only on Spectrum cable, i.e. not a channel/network, but the cable operator. If you don't have their service, you can't get the show AFAIK.

    That's so weird. They couldn't get a deal with an actual network? I thought Mad About You was a pretty popular show back in the day?

    Spectrum has mentioned that their originals may become available elsewhere after the exclusivity window.

    This show is one, like "thirtysomething", that I didn't watch at first because I didn't think I would relate to.. but I started watching for some reason during the show, and became a big fan. (Though there MIGHT be a later example, thirtysomething is I think the last show I watched basically _entirely_ in reruns, probably on Lifetime.. before I knew about shows being hacked up in reruns.. Now I'll watch an ep here or there, or sometimes reruns of a cable channel's _own_ shows, hoping they don't cut them down more, e.g. History Channel originals.)

    So I'll definitely watch when it becomes available on something I already pay for/is cheaply available.

    I know, the usual complaint is "why not do something original?", but I think the Roseanne revival is pretty well done too.

    Anyone watching the 2nd set of episodes?

    For me, they're showing on-demand in SD only. The first 6 that came out last month are still showing as HD.

    Would be nice if they would hit other markets as well, apart from Spectrum . . . .

    Btw, saw that Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt are on the Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show tonight.

    I believe they said after 9 months, Sony could put them elsewhere.

    OMG!! Thanks for posting this. I just watched both episodes. I hope the rest of them drop after a while. I have seriously missed this show.

    I was hoping that you would see the post. :)

    Of all the reboots, this one has seemed the most seamless to me. No, it's not the old Paul and Jamie--it's Paul and Jamie 20 years later, right where they should be (and despite a negative review out there which I had read).

    Viva the Buchmans!
