What about season 2 dvds?  Are they delaying that as well?

Is Dave getting too damn big for his britches, now?  This doesn't bode well....

I've heard it was due to illness so I imagine it won't affect the DVD.

I hope this can all get ironed out in clean and quick fashion--the show was getting expontentially better after every episode, imo, and it'd be sad to see it drop in quality, or outright get cancelled.

Looks like it was more than just 'being sick'.

Ouch.  I guess its pretty difficult to keep topping yourself year after year, that kinda pressure can be rough I imagine.

This will probably effect the DVD (and I think they already announced it would be delayed along with the 3rd season).

A huge part of Chappelle's $50 million deal is backend on the DVD sales and if the third season doesn't happen and he's in breach of contract, I'm sure Comedy Central will feel that he loses a lot of that back-end participation.

From what Ive heard, he is having trouble dealing with his very sudden success.

Does this mean drugs or whatever?  I hope not.
