I was just reading another article (posted at SON) that says that in the event of a strike, rather than hiring scab writers for daytime soap operas or airing reruns (due to serialized nature of soaps, reruns wouldn't fare well), networks plan to just air news/sports programming in their place.

It'll be just like the OJ trial all over again. Nothing but pre-emptions for weeks on end!

...and that WILL kill daytime.

Yeah I read that too and posted it in the other strike thread.

And it just upsets me so much because I certainly would not want preemptions that we have no idea when will end.

I want to see new blood in daytime, or reruns! Rerruns would be CLASSIC, and new writers would be great.

Hell, they should just hire people like us to write the shows. :lol:

But this is still so angering. Losing all nine soaps for possibly months?
