Why is this show not affected by the strike? Not that I don't appreciate
its forging ahead but...how do they do it? And if they can, why not The
I doubt "The Soup" has the budget for union writers.
I also figure that E! gets away with it not being union by classifying
it as either a reality show (Not covered by the WGA -- although
they're trying to gain jurisdiction) or a news show (it qualifies due
to being a commentary on reality shows) or both. If it's classified
as a news show, then it's this simple: the news writers *are* covered
by the WGA, but each network/channel's writers negotiate collectively
only with their individual networks/channels and not with any group of
all the networks. I wouldn't be surprised if it *has* to be this way
for the public interest factor of making sure that all of the network
news is NOT on strike at the same time.
LORELAI: I am so done with plans. I am never, ever making one again.
It never works. I spend the day obsessing over why it didn't work
and what I could've done differently. I'm analyzing all my shortcomings
when all I really need to be doing is vowing to never, ever make a plan
ever again, which I'm doing now, having once again been the innocent
victim of my own stupid plans. God, I need some coffee.
