For people who enjoy Nealon's brand of humor, be aware that his first stand-up comedy special, Now Hear Me Out!, makes its way to DVD today. The special, which clocks in at 72 minutes and features a special appearance by Garry Shandling, has the comedian hitting on topics ranging from getting older (he celebrates 56 years next month) to birthing babies (he and his wife, Susan Yeagley, had their first child in 2007).

Disc includes: Behind-the-scenes footage, Interview with Kevin Nealon featurette, audio commentary

For people who would let Patricia Arquette read their mind any day of the week: Medium: The Fifth Season

As if NBC's woes couldn't get any worse, turns out the show it ditched at the end of last season – Medium – is alive and kicking in its sixth year on CBS. Even better for The Eye, the supernatural drama starring Emmy winner Patricia Arquette probably couldn't be any more compatible with its other hit Friday series, Ghost Whisperer. In its first two respective airings in its new home, Medium has twice scored more total viewers than its lead-in.

The series' fifth season gets released today on DVD. The series stars Arquette as the real-life Allison DuBois, a self-proclaimed medium who uses her psychic abilities to help U.S. law enforcement solve crimes across the country.

Disc includes: The Making of Medium: Season 5 featurette, Script to Screen: Apocalypse Now? featurette, Jake and Patricia Q&A featurette, Curious Maria featurette


For people who think Michael Cera is in need of a hit movie... and fast: Year One (Unrated)

The ads for Year One were mediocre at best, marking the usual Hollywood instance where the best bits were in the trailer. Surprisingly, Americans weren't swayed by the cast – Jack Black, Michael Cera, Paul Rudd, among others – and instead stuck with their guts. Their guts, of course, told them to skip over the summer feature. Year One never finished any higher than fourth place on a weekend and failed to make back (on the domestic end) even 75% of its fairly steep $60-million budget.

Cera could use a little career CPR at this point, given that his social relevancy has fallen a bit since Juno hit it big two years ago. This is yet another reason why an Arrested Development movie has to happen.

Disc includes: Deleted scenes, line-o-rama, extended/alternate scenes, audio commentary, Year One: The Journey Begins featurette, alternate ending, gag reel, Sodom's Got ‘Em! featurette, Leeroy Jenkins: The Gates of Sodom featurette
