Update On The Writer's Strike
The writer’s strike is really starting to put the world of television into crisis mode. The Office shut down production and now 102 non-writing staff members are laid off. The staffs of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O'Brien will be laid off at the end of the week unless the strike ends or the shows decide to come back — either with their regular hosts or with guest hosts.
Now I know if you are like me the thought of shorter seasons of your favorite shows makes you want to cry. Trust me just thinking about it makes me a little teary. So my suggestion try to drag them out. Miss a night and hit set your Tivo. That way you have some for when you get desperate. Also try and find a few new shows you might want to try out of you are stuck with reruns. That might save you from the lack of nothing new. Because if you haven’t seen it it is new to you.
So fellow television junkies please keep praying this ends for our sanity and the people who have lost their jobs sooner than later. And enjoy the episodes you have that will air they may be the last you see for a while.
