Day 3: WGA's Writers' Strike; People's Choice Nominees Being Announced Thursday

We are now into the third day of the WGA Writers' Strike. It feels like it has been 3 months already. No deal has been made yet. Writers are still picketing and trying work out a deal. Eva Longoria of Desperate Housewives was seen at the picket line handing out pizza to the writers. Her show has stopped production after 9 episodes.
In other strike news, all the multi-camera sitcoms like we mentioned yesterday (and we missed Old Christine) are out of production. However, as of now, According to Jim is still taping next week (Nov. 16)...don't know how. Fox will be removing the Nov. 21 airings of Back to You & 'Til Death in favor of repeats. On Nov. 28, Fox will air two all-new episodes of 'Til Death. 'Til Death has about 12 total episodes completed, compared to only about 9 for Back to You. I don't think we will see new episodes of Back to You after its Nov. 14 airing until like January...they will have only 2-3 left by then.
We will try to give you a detailed list of shows with how many episodes left in the coming days...unless the strike finishes by then, which we ALL hope.
ABC will be airing holiday specials Mondays at 8:00PM starting Dec. 3 when Dancing with the Stars concludes. Dec. 3 will be A Charlie Brown Christmas (which will also air on Tues., Nov. 27) and I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown on Dec. 10. Other specials are still TBA, such as the classic Santa Claus is Coming to Town ABC also announced that the popular holiday movie The Polar Express will air on Friday, Nov. 30 from 8-10pm. Shrek the Halls and How the Grinch Stole Christmas will air Wednesday, Nov. 28 from 8-9pm.

The nominations for THE 34th ANNUAL PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS will be announced at a star-studded event on Thursday, November 8 at a premier West Hollywood hot spot. This year, for the first time ever, the nominees will be celebrated with an official Crest + Scope People's Choice Nomination Announcement Party, benefiting Operation Smile. The event's host, Crest + Scope spokesperson Ryan Seacrest, will welcome guests and introduce Paula Abdul, A.J. Cook, Scott Foley and Masi Oka, who will announce the nominees and kick off the voting on

Winners will be revealed during the live broadcast of THE 34TH ANNUAL PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Tuesday, Jan. 8 (9:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. As the first award show of 2008, THE 34TH ANNUAL PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS honors fan favorites in television, movies and music.
We'll be back tomorrow with those nominees!

Tonight on Fox the sitcoms Back to You & 'Til Death return with all-new episodes. The comedy starts at 8/7 central.
