Merry Christmas from SitcomsOnline; New Pre-Strike Episodes Left for All Series

It is Christmas Day and we would like to wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas from all of here at SitcomOnline! Thanks for taking the time out to visit us today. As usual, there are tons of marathons out there such as TV Land's Merrython, TBS' A Christmas Story marathon, ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas programming continues, and many more holiday movies on other networks such as Lifetime.

As we all know there is a writers' strike going on and it is affecting all scripted programming on television. We have compiled a list for you, so you know how many episodes are left for your favorite shows...our Christmas present to you! So in case anyone is asking, "how many Grey's Anatomy episodes are remaining," now you can tell them!

Here is a list of new episodes remaining before repeats fully take over (unless the strike ends soon). All of these episodes will air starting in 2008 (meaning, the earliest Jan. 1). In parenthesis I have the date when the first new one airs in 2008:
