The writers strike is still happening and some of our favorite shows are being impacted!

If you remember in 2007-2008, all 12,000 film and television screenwriters of the American labor unions within the Writers Guild of America went on strike. Late night shows went off the air, movie releases were delayed, and affected shows like Ugly Betty, Heroes, and Girlfriends saw a major shift in the quality of the content. Girlfriends abruptly at that time.

The same thing is happening now. Late-night shows are already airing tapings of old shows and production has halted for other fan-favorites like Abbott Elementary and Cobra Kai. Other shows impacted are:

  • ‘Saturday Night Live’
  • ‘Power Book III: Raising Kanan’
  • ‘Yellowjackets’
  • ‘The Late Show’
  • ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
  • ‘The Tonight Show’
  • ‘Late Night’
  • ‘Last Week Tonight’
  • ‘The Daily Show’

As the list grows, it should show the enormity of the problem while also highlighting how none of what anyone loves, literally zero instances of the art we all cherish, would be possible without writes. They deserve better and eventually will get it!
