i have been watching this too... i liked john stewart's comment about how the stock markets were closed for 3 days... making this a BILLION times more important than 9/11, apparently. hehehe

i can't wait for new shows too... when is BSG starting up? i know that was already done, but i can't wait...

I think I saw a commercial recently that indicated BSG was coming back in March. Not 100% on that.

From Wikipedia: "A fourth, reportedly final, season is scheduled to begin airing 2008-04-04."

my other question was: what happened with soap operas? was all that shit already in the can long ahead, or already written, or what? or did they just... perish the thought... ad lib?

2/16/2008 >> elfie

I think they just aired reruns... or put something else in the timeslot... both of which, even on a ONE-day basis, has generally been catastrophic for soap operas.

Hmmm... I wonder if the same thing happened to professional wrestling? Or are those writers not in the union? hehe

i'd like to see the union meeting where the wrestling writers attend... that would be a great scene

I'm pretty sure a significant portion of wrestling writers are former wrestlers, but I could be wrong there. But my guess is that they don't fall into the WGA. I actually have no idea. However, my guess is that they have enough staff writers that are NOT WGA that they were able to continue on without incident during the strike. I don't really know the rules of having both WGA and non-WGA writers on staff. I'm not sure if that's allowed by the union. I know it's not for SAG. This is a totally ridiculous yet interesting quandary. Someone should find out. Not it!
