NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

There have not been standard DVDs featuring content which has appeared on TV. However, there has been a handful of Biggest Loser themed workout DVDs with trainers from the show. These are not listed here since they don't feature content from the show.
