I've been keeping a running tab at how many television episodes remain for this season taking into account the writers strike. It's beginning to look pretty rough. Here's a rundown of the casualties and where a few favorite televisions shows stand as of this morning:
Season canceled entirely: 24 - This was set to premier in January 2008, but they want to air all 24 episodes with no break. Since not all 24 have been filmed, looks like we'll have no 24 in the Winter Season.
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.
For a complete listing of the shows remaining with details of air dates as well as information on other shows premiering in 2008 check out my feature on How Many TV Shows Remain - Writers Strike. I'm updating it almost daily so it's as accurate as any resource on the web.
Coming Soon: A complete listing of the 2008 Television Schedule (what's left of it anyway). There are some bright spots for 2008 including Jericho, Battlestar Gallactica and the Sara Conner Chronicles. I'll have a feature out on the complete season (with weekly updates) out very soon.
