One season wonder Dan August (ABC, 1970-1971) came out on DVD last month.
Also, two recent CBS shows were released on DVD on November 30th and I failed to notice. Legal drama Doubt, starring Katherine Heigl, ran for 13 episodes during the 2016-2017 season. CBS yanked it off the air after just two episodes, burning off the other 11 during the summer. Sitcom The Great Indoors, starring Joel McCale, ran for 22 episodes during the 2016-2017 season.
