On November 5, 2007 the Writers Guild of America went on strike. The WGA and studio/execs could not reach an agreement on DVD and internet royalties. The strike will have direct effects on TV programming, especially late night such as "The Daily Show with John Stewart". The last writers' strike happened in the 1980s and lasted twenty-two weeks.
This one is on "indefinitely".
