The folks at The Digital Bits website posted yesterday to their Rumor Mill section a long list of Paramount titles that they said would arrive in the first half of 2005. They state that they "(got the)...information from both industry and retail sources. I want to emphasize that this is very tentative and is absolutely subject to change. Also none of the dates you're about to see are officially announced."
One of the titles they listed was The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - Season 1, which their info showed would be out on May 14, 2005. Yes, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, who's motto is "Where more Americans get their news than probably should." This hilarious series would be a welcome addition to store shelves!
However, we'll re-emphasize that this is a rumor, not from the studio, and could be subject to change. But we DO know from the studio that this title is definitely coming, and info of this sort at The Digital Bits' Rumor Mill, in our experience, turns out to be correct most of the time. A day after The Digital Bits posted this info to their Rumor Mill section, they have now removed it from their list along with several films from the same release timeframe. However, Pandora's Box is already open, and other DVD news websites (such as IGN) are now reporting this as well, so we want to be fair to our readers and let them know what The Digital Bits had said. Kudos to them for digging it up in the first place. Stay tuned for the official announcement, just as soon as Paramount makes it!
