The Future of Network TV

According to the website of the Writers Guild of America-East (WGAE), the writers' strike is over. Such a fizzle ending to such a long struggle. I hope they achieved what they wanted.

Brian Steinberg at Ad Age said that there will be fewer new shows, more reality fare and staggered launches.

Sounds like the American TV viewing public just got hosed. Did you see that there are reality shows that feature orangutans (Orangutan Island) and chimpanzees (Escape to Eden) instead of humans? I do not think TV can be dumbed down any further.

I am glad the writers are back. I hope they nix the monkey shows, quick! Maybe they can train the monkees to write! Now, that is an idea . . .
