Well, the producers issued an ultimatum and then walked away from the negotiating table in this writers strike.
This is getting ridiculous. Television in the United States, not to mention Canada, is being ruined by this freaking strike. I know everyone in Canada keeps on crowing about how this is great for the industry up here and all that, but that means nothing if the shows you prefer are American.
By the way, the movies are good on TV tonight: Blazing Saddles, Casablanca, Animal House. Who cares about Saturday Night Live when that's the lineup on AMC and TCM.
