The buzz was that the strike was winding down to a resolution, and it looks like it could indeed be the end of the writer's strike.

The studios and the WGA reached a tentative agreement late last night.  I'm assuming that the offer will be discussed at the WGA meeting scheduled for today, and could be ratified by the menbership in this very same meeting.  Everyone is eager to get back to work, so if the deal goes through, we could see our favorite shows go back into production as soon as possible.

Other information I read yesterday hinted that it would take at least a MONTH for shows to begin appearing on air once again, and there was some speculation if the studios would even bother for this season... if they'd just cut their losses and focus on 2008-2009.  Seeing as we still have the May sweeps period to contend with, I'd assume that they'd be wanting to capture as many eyes as possible, but then again, I'm no expert by any means.  Guess we'll just have to see what happens.

Remember, too, that The Office team had a script essentially ready to film (which Jenna Fischer called one of the "funniest ever") right before the strike happened.  We might see a new episode sooner than expected, if everything goes well.
