All right, so the writer’s strike sucks, especially since Dave and Jay have not been on. I miss Dave’s annual pizza & meatball-topped Christmas tree. But being a writer, I do understand what the strike is about.
However… since Reality TV is my own not-so-secret guilty pleasure, the only benefit of the writer’s strike is… Big Brother and Survivor are coming back in February!! Woo-Hoo!
Check this out for the latest scoop. They will both be on starting in February, the first ever winter Big Brother, which is normally on in the summer. Apparently, although there are writers on Big Brother and Survivor – yes, there are, check out the credits – they are not affected by the strike.
So, with American Idol coming January 15th, 2008, there will be something in the long dark months to watch on the glowing tube.
