Most of the shows you watch on TV will temporarily cease to be for a while. It's already happened on the late night talk shows, and shows like The Office and 30 Rock have been shutting down production because a lot of their stars started out as writers, so they're members of the WGA. Fox is even talking about postponing the entire season of 24 rather than air half a season. So, what are they fighting about?? This here Internet I'm talking to you on. Here are some videos that give you a little info to keep you informed.
