It is official ~ the writer's strike that has been talked about for months began today in New York City and Hollywood. Already, "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" have both announced that they will be showing repeats. They rely on daily and topical jokes, which takes ~ you guessed it ~ writers. And you thought they wrote all of their material. :)
One of the reasons those of us who adore Moonlight have heard so much about this is because new TV shows, which are already vulnerable, can be devastated by the strike. From reports, there are several episodes that are filmed and ready to go. That should mean that we will get our Mick and Beth fix for a few more weeks. What happens after that though? Will CBS stand by Moonlight if the strike drags on and on? It has great momentum now. If the strike lasts a long time, will the program have the same following when it begins airing again?!?
I know that you have also been sending them feedback expressing your feelings about the show. Now, more than ever we have to keep showing them how loyal and serious we are as fans of Moonlight!
