Will Writer's Strike?

Today is the day that the writer's union members will decide whether they will go on strike or not. A strike by the Writers Guild of America, representing about 12,000 film and TV writers, would be its first work strike in nearly 20 years. If it were to drag on for months, a strike could threaten to slow down TV soap operas and films -- which have been stockpiling scripts.

Late-night TV shows like David Letterman and Jay Leno and the "The Daily Show," with Jon Stewart, would be in trouble first because of their topical nature. These shows are not typically written or recorded in advance. It looks like a pretty sure thing. Steve Skrovan, a screenwriter for Fox's "'Til Death," said a strike is all but inevitable.
