The Writer's Strike
What is the immediate result? All the daily shows are off the air for now. Ellen, The Daily Show, and The Tonight Show will be in repeats all week and presumably until the strike is over.
The result on the rest of the season will depend on how long the strike lasts. Ugly Betty and Heroes and all the others could have a shortened season. Shows through the end of the year are fine. If the strike continues into 2008, network television will start of grind to a halt. The only thing we could be seeing for a while is reality TV.
Who knows what will happen to LOST with it's scheduled 16 episode season. If they can't make all 16 will they add more episodes in the future? We will have to wait and see.
