Now's the perfect time for the return of our weekly TV DVD coverage because June 1 marks a major TV release smackdown: Oprah Winfrey vs. David Attenboroug! They're both narrating the epic nature series Life...

Diane Werts here . . . to let you know that the words below come from our Diane2 -- Diane Holloway, who's digested the news from last week's network upfronts to let you know what's new, what's back and what's gone for good.
