The writers' strike is over! *SPOILERS* WE WON!

Deal Has Been Reached to End Writers' Strike

A deal has been struck between the major media companies and the Writers Guild of America to end the writers' strike, former Walt Disney chief executive Michael Eisner revealed on CNBC.

"It's over," Eisner said. "They made the deal, they shook hands on the deal. It's going on Saturday to the writers in general."

Eisner, speaking live on CNBC's "Fast Money," seemed to hesitate initially about whether it was possible that the writers could still reject the agreement, but finally suggested the deal's acceptance was inevitable.

"A deal has been made, and they'll be back to work very soon," Eisner said, adding, "I know a deal's been made. I know it's over."

Eisner did not elaborate on terms of the agreement. He said he expects most of the media companies affected by the strike to have "small" write-downs as a result of the deal. Eisner said the deal was struck last Friday.

As a result of studio cutbacks, however, many of the writers who went on strike are unlikely to return to the same big-money contracts they'd had as individuals with the studios, Eisner said.

Shares of Walt Disney and CBS were both up in extended electronic trading Thursday.
EDIT: But, of course this has been posted already. Oh well, this is worth being posted twice.

There's one thing I don't understand.

How come they had the SAG awards and tonight they're having the Grammys but they DIDN'T have the Golden Globes?

Do different unions work for different shows?

They got waivers from the WGA, the Golden Globes didn't-that's my understanding.

There could be a SAG/AFTRA strike in June, their contract is up. Hopefully there won't be.

I miss the Office... Who knows when new episodes will run, but who cares, at least there will be new episodes.

Typical.

NBC, you have been shitting on this brilliant show for so long, it's amazing it's even lasted seven years. This was supposed to be it's final year, so the least you can do is just let it air ALL of its episodes and let it go out with some dignity.

Just air the pre-strike episodes during February/March, and assuming they shoot the rest now, air the end of the season in April/May.

Jeez, I wonder if they'll show 24 from Fall straight through, or do a short break over X-mas season, or just wait til January. I'm guessing more on the latter, but they had better do a big advert blitz 'cause people are going to forget about the show.

I also don't have a problem with them cutting it off from the end of Dec til Feb if they start for the Fall.
