The writers strike has caused several television shows to have premature season finales. This month (January 2008) and February, which is one of the biggest sweeps events for networks, will see several major and minor shows come to an end three to four months early. And who knows when these shows will return? Definitely not the fall, but maybe by January 2009.
Some shows include CSI on Jan. 10, CSI Miami on Jan. 14, Family Guy on Jan. 13, and even mega women's shows like Desperate Housewives will end on Jan. 6.
Other shows end in March, like Jericho (though it wasn't supposed to be a long season) and Lost, but word is that Fox's Bones will have some new episodes in April and May.
Though I'm not a major TV watcher, I do enjoy some shows, like The Simpsons and 24. Now is a great time to keep plowing throw Netflixed DVD seasons of Battlestar Galactica. Thanks to Vic for turning me onto this brilliant show!
