Fox TV has pulled 24, starring Kiefer Sutherland, until the writer’s strike ends, because they want to run the entire season without interruptions. It was scheduled to begin the new season in January. Other shows affected by the strike include late night talk shows, which are currently in reruns; Desperate Housewives, which ended production this week after running out of scripts; and sitcoms such as Rules of Engagement, Two and a Half Men and Til Death, because they film the same week as the script is written. The Office will air its last original episode November 15th. American Idol is unaffected and returns January 15th. The new season of Lost will also premiere in January as planned.
