Strike Update Status of My Favorite Show

Seat42f Strike Update – Find Out The ‘Strike Proof’ Status Of Your Favorite Shows

Our inbox has been flooded with emails with questions about what is going to happen with various shows if the strike continues for an extended period of time. We did some digging and our covert strike team has assembled this best guess cheat sheet. This data represents our guess as to what is ‘left in the tank’ for a bunch of fan favorites. If you work on a show not listed shoot us email [email protected] with any details you can provide and we will add it to the cheat sheet. As always we keep every source 100% confidential. Our goal in this is to provide TV fans with information on the shows they love while the ‘grown-ups’ work out their differences. 
 
As of 01/11/2008
 
FYI – We have received a bunch of emails asking about reality tv and game shows. The strike has no impact on the following shows as their writers are not governed by the WGA. These shows can air new episodes as fast as they can crank them out.
