As I see things, there will be some shows that will go on hiatus by the end of November. The rest have enough episode in the can to show during February sweeps. That means that we will see repeats and specials during December and January. Now, if the strike continues through February, then pilot season is essentially ruined. If it continues through April (about the same length as the 1988 strike), then May sweeps is ruined. And, I am not expecting a quick resolution.
