BELL Coming to MTV2!

As many of you know, TBS dropped BELL from their lineup this month. Currently, SBTB is not airing in syndication on any US network for the first time in 20 years! But things have quickly changed.

Beginning in March, "Saved by the Bell" will be back in syndication, where it belongs, on MTV2! The network plans to air the show weekdays at 12-2PM and Saturday mornings beginning at 9-12PM! BELL is back on Saturday mornings!

Some people wonder why fans care so much to have BELL airing in syndication when all seasons are on DVD, even the TV movies. Our mission and passion is to continue the show's tradition on TV. We want new generations of kids to fall in love with the show. The only way is by having the show in syndication. We can't take for granted the success the show has gotten in syndication for 20 years! And for that we have to thank TBS. But I guess it's time for a change.

The kids of Bayside will be on MTV! "Lisa Turtle" would be honored.....one step closer to meeting MC HAMMER!!!!

Saved by the Bell Detention Desserts Table

From the Hostess With the Mostess Blog:

"So………I’m LIKE, totally so excited to share this RAD dessert table with you! *wink* All pun aside though, this Saved by the Bell inspired Bayside High School “Detention Desserts” Table from Million Dollar $mile Celebrations really IS pretty dang awesome!

Gotta love a clever & creative theme, and from Kelly “Kup”owski cupcakes to Screech on a Stick marshmallow pops, this one definitely fits the bill “bell“. Don’t miss the strategically placed AC Slater dumbbell, sneaker sugar cookies, or $15 retro television “cupcake stand” either! P.S. Apparently the candy push pops are “so excited” too… and I’m pretty stoked on how they’re displayed in textbooks! See below ;)"

We happen to think this party is so creative, and unique and did the show justice in a FUN party way! Great job! What do you all think? For more pictures, click here!

SBTB 13-Disk Complete Collection DVD Set Coming Soon?

TV Shows On DVD.com is reporting Saved by the Bell - A DVD Release for 'The Complete Collection' is Coming. A 13-disc set is up for pre-order at Amazon's Canadian branch.

"From 2003 to 2005, Lionsgate released 3 DVD sets which together contained all 5 seasons of Saved by the Bell, the original show starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Dustin Diamond, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, Lark Voorhies and Dennis Haskins. This unfortunately did NOT include the one season of the original show, Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which later became Saved by the Bell (and is counted as part of that show by many fans)...those home video rights lay elsewhere. However, in 2007 Lionsgate also released a "double feature" DVD of the two post-series reunion telefilms: "Hawaiian Style / Wedding In Las Vegas." All 4 titles were available in both the USA and Canada.

Now we're grateful to one of our longtime readers, Alexander Ricci, for the heads up that a new listing at Amazon.ca (the Canadian branch of the big e-tailer) shows a March 12 release date for "Saved by the Bell - The Complete Collection." It's marked there as a 13-disc set, which is just enough DVDs to cover the disc count of the 4 previous releases (5 discs + 4 discs + 3 discs + 1 disc = 13). Cost shown is CA$61.99 SRP, and you can pre-order it now at a discount that brings it down into the same current price range of the old separate titles.

There's no package art shown there yet. The state-side branch of Amazon doesn't show a listing for the title at this time, and the Canadian listing neglects to name a studio or distributor. Assuming it's still Lionsgate, the studio hasn't made any formal announcement for the product yet. And the date shown in Amazon.ca's pre-order listing is a Monday; we all know that in-store DVD sets come out on Tuesdays. So we do expect the date to change when the title is officially announced (our guess is that Amazon accidentally used the "order due" date, which is the deadline day roughly 30 days prior to the street date in which retailers must submit their finalized product orders to studios/distributors in order for deliveries to arrive on time).

Stay tuned, of course, and we'll update you further on this title just as soon as we are able to!"

Now this has us asking:
Will this set include: 

  • Full non-syndicated edited episodes?
  • interviews?
  • Good Morning, Miss Bliss eps?
  • special features?
  • etc.
  • Will it be sold in the US, too?

Will YOU buy this set? Let us know in the comment section! Don't forget to share this post with your friends on Facebook and Twitter!

Tiffani Thiessen: 'I don't want or need Saved By The Bell reunion'

Tiffani has insisted that she has no interest in a Saved By The Bell reunion.

Late Night host Jimmy Fallon has been the chief proponent of Thiessen reuniting with Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mario Lopez for a new one-off Saved By The Bell episode, but the actress has now told Parade that it will likely never happen.

"It's not something I want or need to do, and a few of us feel the same way. We're all doing our own thing," Thiessen said, adding: "Jimmy's never called me personally, only his producers. He might be a little harder to turn down."

Thiessen also revealed that she's never read co-star Dustin Diamond's tell-all biography Behind the Bell, which dished dirt on Saved By The Bell's cast.

"My time is very precious these days, and that's not how I want to spend it," she said.

Saved By The Bell ran for five seasons between 1989 and 1992 and even spun off a College Years series.

Thiessen's co-star Elizabeth Berkley said last year that she would be in favor of a Saved By The Bell reunion show.
