LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Striking Hollywood writers are going back to work.

The Writers Guild of America said its members voted Tuesday to end their devastating, three-month strike that brought the entertainment industry to a standstill.

Writers will go back to work Wednesday after voting in Beverly Hills and New York.
It's about time. I'm seriously sick of not having all my shows on...

Awesome, looks like we'll be getting the second half of Battlestar Galactica season 4 sooner rather than later.

This is good news. I like how the LOST team said there will be 5 more episodes added this season and The Office has said there will be 9-10 more!

90% of statistics can be made to say anything 50% of the time.

…and the results?

Quote:
Under a tentative contract approved Sunday by the union's board of directors, writers would get a maximum flat fee of about $1,200 for streamed programs in the deal's first two years and then get 2 percent of a distributor's gross in year three.
Not too shabby.

That's the only thing that I want.

Really that's the only show that I try to follow.

I bought Season 3 on DVD though to get me through the strike.
