Which show was bigger at it's peak- Seinfeld or The Simpsons?
52 liamemsa I'm wondering if, in like 25-30 years, when people will be watching shows, they'll wonder why certain shows in the 00's have like 10 episode seasons. And then someone will make a "TIL that in 2007, the Writers Guild of America had a strike. This is why many television shows during that year had extremely short seasons."
117 avatizer I still mourn for Pushing Daisies, whose ratings momentum was cut off by the strike and it never recovered in season 2 and was canceled without a properly-filmed finale. Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog also came out of the strike, and there's a [song on the musical commentary track about the writers' strike](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfwElBO-gQ8).
169 rovinja And Heroes never recovered as a show
31 corndogs1001 Was zack and Cody really cancelled tho? I thought it was because there 3 season contract was up (as what most Disney shows have.) And on deck aired soon after and lasted another 3 seasons.
26 [deleted] Who Made Huckabee? Might be one of my favorite bits ever done on Late Night TV.
25 evildave_666 Something that isn't mentioned as much - the strike was the end of strictly regimented TV season starts/finishes and sweeps weeks.
38 shadowdra126 RIP pushing daisies
17 joggerboy18 Am I correct in thinking that the Writers' Strike successfully prevented the Deposition and Dinner Party episodes of the Office from airing one after each other?
14 wrongkanji The Writer's Strike is what made Misha Collins' career. The original SPN storyline got scrapped in favor of 'an angel raises Dean'.
35 IAmADopelyLitSavage Writer's Strike Conan was the best string of television that late night television has ever produced. Sure his remote episodes done in other cities/countries are still the best stuff on late night TV now, and his final few weeks of shows on The Tonight Show after falling out with NBC were awesome, but the writer's strike showed how much better Conan is when he is freed from the shackles of archaic late night television bullshit of being forced to do monologues and sketches. It's just like how his current TBS show is unwatchable on a daily basis, yet suddenly he does a remote segment or a remote episode in another city or country and that is immediately must-watch.
22 polkadottulip And I'm still bitter about Pushing Daisies
19 LineLiar That's a really nice write-up. Great job! Let's hope that will never happen again.
8 K20BB5 Desperate Housewives wasn't a reality show
7 yankeephil86 One show that got cancelled and it bugs the fuck out of me is “The Riches” I saw it on Netflix a few years back, finished season one, then season two ends abruptly with the bad guy calling to tell the main character that he has his son.
6 ghostmrchicken I don't think anyone has mentioned, "The Riches": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Riches It was hit by the writers' strike in season 2 and only half of the planned episodes ever aired (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Riches#Season_2:_2008). I thought it was quite clever but I could see how they'd likely run out of good story ideas fairly quickly.
5 Afishafishafishyohh The writers strike was a weird time for tv.
4 Tundraspin Journeyman TV show from NBC. I am sad.
5 NeoNoireWerewolf The great late night madness will always be the most memorable thing from this. Conan was the best comedy on TV during the writer’s strike, late night or otherwise.
4 ChrisRedfieldfanboy I loved the 4400, it was heartbreaking to see it go.
5 jakev37 Only 3 shows which debuted that season got to a 3rd season; Gossip Girl, Chuck and The Big Bang Theory.
3 dizzyChoirboy I'm interested in seeing if the non-union writers who filled in during that time are still working because of the opportunities that opened up.
3 supdubdup Do non-union people suffer after union people are back in the industry? Are they placed in a blacklist or anything like that?
