Strike Spells More Trouble for Favorite TV Shows

Television’s top stars will take to the streets today to walk the picket line in support of the Writers Guild of America strike.

“Picketing with the Stars” will bring together Ben Stiller, Jim Belushi, Patricia Heaton, Nicollette Sheridan, Ray Romano, George Lopez, the cast of “Grey’s Anatomy” and more outside Universal Studios in Hollywood.

But as the stars support the writers on day nine of the strike, several of your favorite TV shows are in danger of going dark.

NBC will only air one more fresh episode of “The Office.” Production on “Desperate Housewives” is already shut down, with only two more episodes ready to go.

“House” has six more weeks of new episodes, while “Grey’s Anatomy” has just four more as this historic showbiz shutdown hits Hollywood hard.

CBS is being asked to produce more episodes of “48 Hours Mystery” and “60 Minutes” to compensate for the loss of their dramas and comedies. But there are reports today that CBS News is preparing for the possibility of a news-writers’ strike.
