    Except for the interviews, I would think that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert also would hit by the writers strike. I have been enjoying Journeyman. It is evolving episode by episode. I'm still enjoying Pushing Daisies a lot as well. I have some 80 hours on our DVR that I have yet to watch so I can completely relate to wanting to catch up.

    I, too, like Journeyman. The scripts could be much, much better, with less soapiness, but the acting is top-notch.

    Apparently The Daily Show's writers are part of the Writer's Guild so that show would probably be stopping with the strike and presumably earlier since they shouldn't have as much a backlog of material. You might want to listen to the first half of Aaron Barnhart's podcast talk with Paul Harris on PaulHarrisOnline from yesterday. It is quite interesting.

    I'm in the Journeyman camp, too. I kinda liked Viva Laughlin, but an old CSI was on Sunday instead so I think that's dead. I'm surprised you think the internet is the major competition for TV & movies, but I come from the book-reading coterie and we usually use the internet for communications rather than entertainment.

      I'm just going by the Nielsen numbers that are leaked to me. I'm sure there's a redacted report saying much the same online somewhere.
