How the WGA strike affects TV

About 99% of what I’ve heard about the strike from non-writers has been concern about favorite TV shows going off air. This is totally legit (and has in most cases been framed with support and/or admitted lack of knowledge about what’s going on). Television will be the first medium to suffer, and indeed it already has.

LA Times has the breakdown here. The good news is that The View will continue uninterrupted! In an update to the LA Times listings, Perez Hilton (whom I normally do not read) reports that Ellen has crossed picket lines. I understand her reasoning but I don’t like it.

I’m getting links and info from writersstrike on twitter and United Hollywood (not to mention assorted industry blogs).
