Keep Circulating the Tapes: Only the first season is available on DVD. Copyright issues over music have prevented further seasons from being released, as Drew Carey is insistent on the DVD release being identical to the broadcast. Another issue is the fact that Drew Carey no longer has a good relationship with ABC after the handling of the show's final season and the way the network unceremoniously pushed him out after he spent a decade doing everything they asked of him.
Screwed by the Network: The show was a ratings hit so ABC gave it a two season renewal after the seventh season. Then ratings started to fall during the eighth but ABC found themselves contractually obligated to produce and pay for two full seasons of a show they didn't want. The network, realizing that the contract didn't obligate them to broadcast the show at a decent time, got back at the show by putting it in strange time slots and burning the last episodes off during the summer.
