WGA/AMPTP(Writer's Strike) deal is imminent - strike to be over this week...

This is big enough news that I thought it deserved it's own thread...articles in the New York Times as well as reports on LA radio stations and E! are indicating that sources inside negotiations have said that the the writers and studios are "99%" there, that the major issue of compenstation for new media projects has been settled on by both sides, and that there are only a few minor issues left to iron out. This thing could be over any time this week.

I agree. This whole "live your own life" thing is over rated.

I'm hoping this is true mostly because I have a lot of friends impacted negatively by this, and I'd like to see them get back to work/avoid layoffs if this continues.

I'd like some Colbert, Stewart, Conan, etc. with writers. And new episodes of shows I like to watch. But yeah, there are a lot of people impacted by this strike, so hopefully this ends asap

I know it's a lost cause for this year, but 24 and the rest of the season for Heroes, Lost, The Office, etc. would be wonderful.

Oh I hope the strike is soon to be over! Most of all I hope the writers get what they want in the settlement.

I wonder if it will mean any new episodes this season or if the season is shot. They should have new ones all summer.

Ratings should go through the roof then. Cause everyone stays at home during the summer to watch tv.

In any case, that's great they've reached a deal.
