In the S.F Chronicle today the Entertainment the columist said that for them to suspend a show it usually means something major like drugs or a death.
Hmmm.

If he's going to rehab, it's probably for something more serious than pot.

Blurb from a Newsweek article I read today:

Neither Chappelle's publicist, Matt Labov, nor Comedy Central's spokespeople are offering any explanation for the latest delay. Labov denies that his client has a drug problem. And a source close to Chappelle believes this latest stoppage is more about the show itself than the health of its star. Eager to top his previous work, Chappelle wants to push the racial envelope even further in the third season—and network executives, according to this source, are afraid he's crossing the line. "Dave is not compromising what he wants to do," he says. "He's waited a long time for this chance, and he's not trying to do anything that isn't 100 percent his vision." Last week, though, Comedy Central flatly denied any conflict, as did an employee in Chappelle's camp, who insists the current delay "is not a network issue."
Here's the linky

Don't quote me on it, but the latest rumor is that he checked into a psychiatric clinic. Not kidding. Again, I heard this as rumor, but figured I'd toss it out there. No flames please.

The more outrageous stories that come out, makes me think this whole thing is a publicity stunt, and Chapelle's show will resume on the 31st, he'll come out and say: "Gotcha bitch!"

If not, I hope he gets the help that it sounds like he badly needs.

On Mancow right? Ya that was a guy from Extra I think. I couldn't believe it myself. But he said for certain there was no Season 3.

True, I thought it odd for him to go so out of the way for a mental institution.

Hoping his decision to go there isn't part of his problem.

He's probably hoping it would be more private. Doesn't look like it's working.

Hope the kid's alright and that he gets well quick.

This sounds really really strange. It might all be a PR stunt, or a cover for an addiction problem.

I wonder if we ever will see a third season?
