Writers’ strike may end this week

Writers’ StrikeThe writers’ strike may be at an end as early as Wednesday. The Writers Guild of America yesterday approved a special 48-hour vote among its 10,500 members to end the strike. The strike began last November, bringing production of films and television series to an abrupt halt. If an agreement is reached, new episodes of television shows could air in four to six weeks. The new deal would run through to May 1, 2011. Lost, which just began airing its new season last month, would continue on without interruption; while 24, which has several episodes ready to air, would finally begin its season. Other shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Bones, Desperate Housewives and House will come back as soon as new episodes are written, filmed and edited.

    I love Survivor, but that’s the only reality show I like, and actually I missed the entire China series. But I am glad they are hopefully going to end this strike.

    Big Brother, Survivor and Paradise Hotel are fine. I’m referring to the Celebrity reality shows like Hogan, Gene Simmons, Brett Michaels, Pussy Cat Dolls etc, etc

    Big Brother, Survivor and Paradise Hotel are fine. I’m referring to all those B-list Celebrities getting a show with a camera to follow them around and acting like it’s a typical day in their life when it’s clearly all scripted.

    You’re right, sorry…I misread your comment….the first comment on here. I’m duh! You clearly said “CELEBRITY” reality shows.

    yea, I’ll be watching. I hated the way Big Brother 8 ended. I wanted almost anyone but the father or daughter to win.

    Really? And I liked Evil the best out of all of them!!

    I liked Evil in the early shows, but him and especially his daughter drove me nuts down the stretch.

    I like people who cause controversy….that’s why I liked Evil, I think. He made me laugh at the expense of all the others!!
