Writer’s Strike: Situation Critical! December 3, 2007

Filed under: Television and Movies — davissn30 @ 2:39 pm

I am really starting to get nervous about what I will be doing come January in order to entertain myself. I might just have to travel to Asia and Europe for three months to avoid not having any TV to watch. Of course, on a positive note, I have FINALLY started watching The Wire fo’ real. I had to rewatch the first three episodes again since it was so long ago that I started, but I am really hooked now.

Aaaanywhose, below is a handy chart on when our favorite shows will go black. It’s an abrogated version of Michael Ausiello’s chart from TV Guide, because I frankly don’t care how many episodes of Life is Wild are left. No word on HIMYM, which is too bad because last week’s ep about going to the gym and Barney losing his mojo was Hi (wait for it)

071109strikeshows.jpg30 Rock: Ten episodes will be produced. Seven episodes have aired, so there are three left.
Bones: Twelve episodes will be produced. Nine episodes have aired, so there are three left.
Brothers & Sisters: Twelve episodes will be produced. Eight episodes have aired, so there are four left.
Chuck: Thirteen episodes will be produced. Ten episodes have aired, so there are three left.
Desperate Housewives: Ten episodes will be produced. Eight episodes have aired, so there are two left.
Dirty Sexy Money: Eleven episodes will be produced. Nine episodes have aired, so there are two left.
Friday Night Lights: Fifteen episodes will be produced. Seven episodes have aired, so there are eight left.
Gossip Girl: Thirteen episodes will be produced. Nine episodes have aired, so there are four left.
Grey‘s Anatomy: Eleven episodes will be produced. Nine episodes have aired, so there are two left.
Heroes: Eleven episodes will be produced. Ten episodes have aired, so there is one left.
House: Twelve episodes will be produced. Nine episodes have aired, so there are three left.
Lost: Eight episodes will be produced. None have aired yet, so there are eight episodes left.
Men in Trees: Nineteen episodes will be produced. Seven episodes have aired, so there are 12 left.
The Office: Twelve half-hour episodes will be produced. Twelve half-hour episodes have aired, so there are zero half-hour episode left.
Pushing Daisies: Nine episodes will be produced. Eight episodes have aired, so there is one left.
Reaper: Ten to 12 episodes will be produced. Nine episodes have aired, so there is one to three left.
Samantha Who?: Twelve episodes will be produced. Seven episodes have aired, so there are five left.
Scrubs: Eleven episodes will be produced. Five episodes have aired, so there are six left.
Ugly Betty: Thirteen episodes will be produced. Nine episodes have aired, so there are four left

So, IAYMers, what’s more upsetting. 1) That these shows are all about to run out of new stuff? 2) That I will miss the entire run of Lost this winter/spring? 3) That I take an interest in so many %$&* shows, including some that are not even listed here (Project Runway, anyone?)?

    I am interested in 80% of the shows you listed, plus a few others… e.g. Life! (Love that Damian Lewis.) More importantly, what am Iiiiiiiiiiii going to do in January, February and March while you have more important things to do like gallivant around the eastern hemisphere????

    The Wire is amaaaazing. I am jealous that you are watching it for the first time. Tell me who your fave character is — it will be so hard to pick.

    This is absolutely terrible. TERRIBLE. I am going to be big, fat and have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do when I am sitting in my apt with my big fat body. AHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    There’s 1 more episode.

    Next episode: The Platinum Rule
    Ted’s upcoming date with his doctor leads the gang to give him their own examples of why dating someone you already see regularly is a bad idea.
