Looks like writers' strike over

The tentative agreement between the union and studios will be voted on by the full membership on Tuesday at meetings in New York and Los Angeles. The leadership of the writers' guild is recommending the agreement be approved.

This is good news for the Oscar telecast, of course. And it might be good if the networks can get a few more new episodes of their hits before the season ends -- there's some speculation that at least some shows might just hold off until the fall. But it seems to me that it's not going to stem the "reality" TV tide any time soon. Those shows are cheaper to make and enough people watch them to make them profitable. So in the future we can look forward to more shows like "Are You Smarter Than A 5th-Grade Bachelorette Hooked Up To A Lie Detector While Dancing With Stars And Being Made A Supermodel?"

Good -- hopefully they'll get a move on and MAKE MORE EPISODES OF THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Not that I'm impatient or anything.

It returns March 17th. EW.com has a link listing when shows will return. Some, such as Heroes, won't come back until the fall.

But they haven't decided whether or not to renew "Women's Murder Club," and I thought the ratings were good. Besides, they just started a story arc with that hotty from "Stargate: Atlantis."
