Assuming the Writer's Guild of America officially ends its strike on Tuesday, Hollywood will be officially free of the three months of paralysis that led to lost jobs and the likes of "American Gladiators" foisted on the viewing public. The next question is, when will we see more episodes of our favorite shows? Michael Ausiello's blog at TV Guide offers guesstimates as to when the networks' various shows will come back, if they even do. ("The Bionic Woman," we hardly knew ye.) "The Office," for instance, may shoot five to 10 episodes that will air in April and May (and one hopes will redeem an unsteady season so far), but nothing has been finalized as of yet.
So don't count on the airwaves to be blissfully free of reality shows anytime soon.
Incidentally, Ausiello's post doesn't mention "Battlestar Galactica," which launches its fourth and final season April 4.
