Due to the writers strike, I’ve been keeping a running tab at how many television episodes remain and it’s beginning to look pretty grim. Here’s a rundown of the casualties and where a few favorite television shows stand:
24 was set to premier in January 2008. Fox wanted to air all 24 episodes without interruption, and since they haven’t all been filmed, there’ll be no 24 this winter.
Zero Episodes Remain
Heroes, Desperate Housewives, Big Bang Theory, Bionic Woman, The Family Guy, The Office, Reaper, Rules of Engagement, Two and a Half Men
1 Episode Remains
Chuck, Criminal Minds, Girlfriends, Life, Pushing Daisies, Shark
2 Episodes Remain
Back to You, Dirty Sexy Money, Grey’s Anatomy, K-Ville, Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Moonlight, My Name is Earl, Private Practice
3 Episodes Remain
Bones, Brothers and Sisters, CSI, Dirt, House, Journeyman, Numbers
