Clock stops on 24
As expected 24 is in big trouble.
FOX has opted not to premiere it on January 13 now due to the various production problems (WGA strike, Kiefer in jail and even the Californian fires). Instead it wants to air ‘Day 7’ uninterrupted.
It will be replaced by Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Meanwhile Law and Order: SVU and Pushing Daisies are set to shut production. Despite assurances prior to the start of the strike, networks are reacting faster than anticipated.
There is even speculation new shows such as Dirty Sexy Money a Seven 2008 hope could be cancelled altogether. “I believe the show might end with Episode 10 — that might be the last one aired,” said creator Craig Wright.
Saturday Night Live has been cancelled this week.
More big names joined the picket lines including the cast of Grey’s Anatomy in costume no less, The Office / King of the Hill’s Greg Daniels, Larry David, Matt Groening. Movies are already feeling the pinch too, unable to promote their product on the absent Tonight shows.
