CNN is reporting that the 100-day Hollywood writers walkout is now officially over. The new contract managed to snag two of the three major points the Writers Guild was looking for. The writers will now have "jurisdiction" for content created especially for new media (Internet, cell phones, etc) and will get paid for the reuse of content on new media when the studios get paid. "Leslie Moonves, chief executive officer of CBS Corp., told The Associated Press, 'At the end of the day, everybody won. It was a fair deal and one that the companies can live with, and it recognizes the large contribution that writers have made to the industry. [...] It's unclear how soon new episodes of scripted programs will start appearing, because production won't begin until scripts are completed, the AP reported. It will take at least four weeks for producers to get the first post-strike episodes of comedies back on the air; dramas will take six to eight weeks, the AP said.'"

Question: With such late night talk show hosts such as Jay Leno and Bill Maher crossing picket lines and thus spitting in the face of their own writers for various reasons. Now that the strike is over, how will these writers be able to go back into the same room and look at their Talent in the eye. I mean, if I were a writer for Bill Maher, I wouldn't be able to look at him the same way again.

Am I missing something here?

Yea fuck Jay Leno and Bill Maher they should've just quit their shows and allowed all their non writing staff to be fired b/c of the dispute the writer's had. I think most writers understand and since they've gotten what they want why should they give a fuck!

Yea, thats one thing that will always burn me about this fuckin strike.

On the other hand, though, now that the show wont be back until January 09 the writers have plenty of time to give us a fuckin amazing season.
