If ever there was a big shove in the direction of media change – this might be it. The Writers Guild of America, along with the Screen Actors Guild and other unions are ready to strike, according to Variety. This could shut down late night shows immediately, and rip apart the network (and to some extent cable) lineups if the shutdown drags on. The Heroes: Origins spinoff is on ice on strike fears.
Following up on Cory’s entry below, this week’s SNL with Brian Williams could be the last new ep for a while. If the strike were to start Friday as speculated, even the Williams hosted episode could go down the tubes, since “it’s unclear if Williams would cross a picket line” according to Variety.
