As The WGA Strike Comes To An End, Here Comes The Fallout

WGAWell, it looks like it’s all over.  The Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) didn’t get exactly what they wanted the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP), but close enough.

So, when do you get new TV shows?  The Watch With Kristin column over at E! has a huge list done show-by-show, but basically, expect sitcoms back in mid-March, and dramas sometime in April.  Some of the most interesting tidbits is no 24 this year as it’s just too late, Heroes is done for this season, as is Pushing Daisies.

In other words, it’s a blasted mess.  Watch your guides closely for what’s new and what’s not.

All I can say is that at least the writers are getting some of the money they deserve.
