Yo. At the expense of being a broken record, I'm going to say what obviously needs to be repeated. GIVE. THE WRITERS. WHAT. THEY WANT. That's as slowly and loudly as I care to say that right now. Looka here. I am tired of all the reality shows. And guess what? This is only the beginning. The longer this strike drags on, the more we will see. The networks will find a way to fill the hours with shows that don't need writers. I WON'T BE COWED!! Jay, Conan and all the other late night hosts have been running the same reruns since the beginning of November. And some of them have shows playing multiple times a night. I'm always up in the middle of the night when I have to work and I'm tired of the reruns!! People who work for the shows that require writers who aren't writers are getting laid off.
Let's also talk about how THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WRITTEN EPISODES OF ANY OF MY SHOWS TO MAKE UP AN ENTIRE SEASON!! Grey's. I love you!! AND when the writers finally return, production doesn't start immediately. They still need to write the shows, then the actors need to learn their parts, extras, etc. need to be called back. And on and on and on. It will take a while to churn out new episodes once they return.
All you Lost and 24 fans should be upset because those seasons are both getting pushed back (court dates aside). Do you even understand that I will NOT be drawn in to all these reality shows?! I WILL NOT BE MANIPULATED INTO COMPLACENCY ABOUT THIS STRIKE!! We are getting desperate at work. Because we work in tv, we are all a little bit obsessed with it and watch incessantly. This is all good and well when there are actual shows, but I am TI.YERD (I've moved past tired and am now TI.YERD) of having people try to convince me of the myriad and NON-EXISTENT virtues of the hottest! new! reality show! Bah humbug! I WANT MY DRAMADIES AND MY COMEDIES AND MY WRITTEN, SCRIPTED SHOWS!! I WANT MY SNL!!! Ugh.
(If you pictured me yelling, jumping up and down and throwing temper tantrums, part of the time with my eyes screwed shut, you were right. UUUUUHHHHH!!!!)
