Get out your Oscar frock! Both Nikki Finke and the NY Times are reporting a settlement may near :

Informal talks between representatives of Hollywood’s striking writers and production companies have eliminated the major roadblocks to a new contract, which could lead to a tentative agreement as early as next week, according to people who were briefed on the situation but requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak.

A deal would end a crippling writers strike that is now entering its fourth month.

Could this mean the end of non stop reality TV programming? We sure hope so, because we weren’t looking forward to Would You Let a Fifth-Grader Waterboard You?

  1. You know, I had to Google that, “Would You Let a Fifth-Grader Waterboard You?” because I haven’t watched TV in a dog’s age and I wasn’t sure if it was real, or not. I’m not a TV snob, I just don’t have the time. If I could I’d watch it.

    Especially if it had children torturing adults. Sounds perfect for my book.

    As for the Writer’s Strike, I hope this is the beginning of the end. Not only for the content, but also for all the people orbiting the strike who have been affected.
