I'd hope that once stations saw the result of presenting the series in widescreen, they'd pass. Is there much of a precedent for releasing 1.33:1 television programs cropped to widescreen on home video, anyway? I can't say I'm totally concerned about how the show is broadcast on TV -- I'll be watching it on Blu-Ray if it's released.
has shown shows such as Cheers
and Hogan's Hero's
True, but have they been released in the cropped widescreen format on home video? Not as far as I know.
