"Article from 8/31 NY Times
I won't copy the entire article, but here are some relevant quotes:
FANS of one of the greatest sitcoms in history, you finally have cause to rejoice: Chuckles the Clown is, once again, going to bite the dust, and this time he's doing it on DVD.
What knocked the series off the fast track, according to Steven Feldstein, senior vice president for corporate and marketing communications at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, was a glutted marketplace. "We looked at the landscape of the TV-to-DVD business and stepped back," he said. "The other studios were dumping stuff that nobody wanted onto DVD. I mean, `What you talkin' 'bout, Willis?' Come on. People were dumping everything."
This May [Oprah Winfrey] devoted an hour of her show to a reunion of the entire surviving original cast, complete with a replica of the WJM set. During the show Ms. Winfrey wept with joy.
Fox got the message and has now committed to releasing all three remaining seasons, covering episodes from the fall of 1974 to the spring of 1977."

An American Classic - Season 5 Outclasses Most of Today's Sh

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is the season that introduces a lot of memorable characters, like Eileen Heckert as hard-drinking newswoman, Flo Meredith, as well as "Chuckles Bites the Dust," ranked by TV Guide as one of the top two comic episodes of all time. This is such a great series it would be criminal not to release seasons 5, 6 & 7."
