WriterGate 2007 - Day One

I will probably get bored with this topic in, like, a day or two, but let's pretend we here at GITW intend to keep you up-to-date with all your Writers Strike news. Here are the highlights so far (with bullets, no less):

  • The strike officially began at midnight last night. Looks like picketing runs from 9-5. How much does it suck to be on strike and still have hours to keep?
  • The strike has already touched the "common man" as my co-worker was very disappointed last week's episode of Back to You was a re-run. However, the strike has yet to effect shows normal people actually watch.
  • Until now...Your favorite late night shows (Conan, The Daily Show, Letterman) will not air new episodes (are they called episodes when they are talk shows?) for the duration of the strike. Leno will also not air, but I just assumed you didn't care anyway.
That's it for now. More to come...maybe...
