As a former TV junkie, I chose to get rid of mine years ago for that reason (among others), so it's not hard for me to see what's happening with the TV strike. As shown, there are some really popular shows that either have to go into reruns now, or the network producers had better get creative and perhaps show some classics, for example, from "must-see TV" and other shows.
I'm sure some of these writers (and beyond that - production crews - even actors/actresses) could be in financial straits, so I don't mean what I now say in any berating way towards them - I'm directing this at the elitism of Hollywood -
Your shows must not mean too much to the American people as a whole - people are getting along just fine with other things to do (and, in the age of cable TV, other things to watch, too). I don't hear of any great panic that people will miss their shows, demanding that the writers and producers soon find common ground. If there is a lot of frenzy over it, point it out to me, please, so I can laugh at it.

I don't think there is a lot of frenzy over it because people have more things to worry about ie. the economy. Some shows still have new episodes but are on the last one or two. A lot are done. The Office has not had a new episode since before X-mas I think. Some shows like Lost are just staring although it will be a shortened season, only 8 eps as opposed to 16. And we always have good old American Idol that just started. Survior will start again in a couple of weeks.

I am disappointed that NCIS and The Office will be gone for awhile, but I have other things to do. I am currently catching up on Lost (from 0 to S2E9 since Sunday) so I should be caught up shortly after the restart.
Which series of NCIS are you up to in America? I think we've just got to the end of series 3 over here & I can't wait for more! But it doesn't quite beat my favourite which is JAG. That was great, especially the episode with the drug runners & the Dc6 or Dc7 at the old abandoned airstrip.

We are in Season 5 now. In December I started watching all of the episodes online starting with S1E1. I am to the middle of Season 3 now (some episodes from S1 were not online). JAG was an excellent show, but I cannot seem to find any episodes online. I especially want to see the final few episodes because the NCIS team was introduced in them, sorta like a segway into NCIS. You can find links to past seasons here (so you can catch up to where the US is), but be warned that the first site can load extremely slowly on weekends and the sites hosting the shows can be slow in general, even with high speed internet.
thanks for the website info. I don't know whether to download them, buy them on DVD or wait for them on British television? I'm sorry that I cant help you about downloading the final few episodes of JAG because I'm buying the complete season box sets! To be honest I never even thought about downloading them, I suppose that would be a much cheaper option than buying the complete box sets! When was NCIS first brought into JAG? Was it when Lt Singer was found murdered?

And things have reached a new low. I can live without SNL, but the fact that yesterday on 22:00 there was still figure skating running on NBC is just horrible. They could have shown some NHL matches instead for Christ's sake.
