Ausiello ~ No new Moonlight episodes until Fall

TV Guide's, Michael Ausiello, has addressed the question of which tv shows will go back into production when the writer's strike ends. Unfortunately, he says no new Moonlight episodes until the Fall season. I am conflicted by the news.... Yea! for Moonlight returning for the Fall season.... BOO! I want more now! Of course, this information is not set in stone. Have you contacted CBS lately??

At long last, a strike chart you can get excited about!

With an end to the three-month-old WGA strike imminent (yay!), the networks have quietly begun outlining plans to salvage what's left of the current TV season. At the same time, I've been quietly picking at my moles to get a preview of those plans — the results of which appear in chart form below.

Keep in mind that the following information remains extremely tentative and is subject to change (and probably will). In other words, I strongly suggest you refresh your browser at least once an hour to ensure that you're getting the most up-to-date scoop possible.

Maybe we should write to the network asking them to produce new episodes. A lot of the online journalists say this show is cheap to make....
