It's January. There wouldn't be anything on anyway. AFAIK most shows are coming back when they normally would. Apart from talk shows, there haven't been any strike side effects. They even just had a promo for Lost. I'm confused as to how anyone could in fact be "feeling" anything. It's an illusion. Chuck is back January 24th.

Chuck is only showing two episodes on that date. It isn't really back. So even though the studios ordered a full season order of episodes we won't be getting the full season for who knows how long.
well i am feeling it. i just can't get excited for season 4 of lost, when i know we are only gonna get 7 episodes and the last one ends in a huge cliffhanger. i can't take that kind of stress!  :speechless:

Yeah, I heard the writers of Lost said that they didn't even want those episodes to air becuase it would be like reading half a harry potter book and then having to wait for the author to finish the book after she was paid.

It may delay the finale' of battlestar galactica, which pisses me off, but I still support the writers. It's good to see some working people fighting back against the goddam suits....

Yeah. January is usually dead. The problem is nobody's working on the shows we're gonna be watching come the Fall. That's gonna be a bummer unless the strike gets worked out.
