All in the Family was videotaped, not filmed. They can do a blu ray release, but it won’t be in HD.
Since it was done on videotape, there's no reason to do a blu-ray. The current DVD issues are more than enough. DVD (at 720x480 — 530 Television Lines) has higher resolution than NTSC (440x486 — 330 TVL), or S-VHS (530x480 — 420 TVL). Regular VHS, btw, clocks in at 320x480 — 260 TVL. There's no point to a blu-ray of anything shot on videotape, which includes most (maybe all) of the Norman Lear output and WKRP in Cincinnati, among others.
