Saturday Night Live - Season Set Outlook is Not So Good for SNL, Studio Says

Music costs contribute to a DVD strategy change, back to best-of releases

Posted by David Lambert
We get a LOT of e-mails from our readers, asking whether season sets of Saturday Night Live will continue or not. Fans have been treated to at least one each year, usually available around the holidays, for several years in a row now. All-in-all, five season sets have been released so far.

However, no season set SNL titles have been announced for any time in 2010. So we checked in with Broadway Video (the people behind the show) to ask about this, and they told us that unfortunately, due to the high music costs (and an unwillingness to deliver the season sets without the music segments), they will not be able to continue with any further season set releases. We presume that this is why we're seeing a large number of "best-of' titles released this year instead, including "expanded" versions of old titles, collection packs of the old versions of those titles, plus brand-new releases such as The Best of 09/10 and A Very Gilly Christmas...but no season sets.

We'll add this info about a lack of more SNL season sets to our site's "What's the Hold-up?" FAQ, of course, along with other DVD releases that don't look like they'll be available in the near future. Look for these additions to that document in the next few days. Hopefully things will change down the road for this show (perhaps when the economy picks back up?). If they do, we'll let you know, so stay tuned of course.
