‘The Talk’ Goes Dark, Other Daytime Talk Shows Stay On as Writers Strike


While nighttime television will be a sea of ​​reruns as shows are canceled in the wake of a writers’ strike, the daytime landscape won’t change all that much.

That’s partly because, when members of the Writers Guild of America took office on Tuesday, several daytime talk shows don’t employ WGA writers. A major exception is CBS’ The conversationcausing production to come to a halt during the strike.

Both ABCs The view and Disney’s Syndicated Live with Kelly and Mark aired Tuesday as usual, hours after the WGA announced the work stoppage for the first time since 2007. Tell sources The Hollywood Reporter That The view is largely unscripted, and while “a few” writers are affected on the show, no one else on staff will be doing their jobs during the strike.

Live with Kelly and Ryan is also unaffected by the strike, as is the syndicated Tamron hall (both The view and Hall’s show are produced by ABC News).

The conversation, which has WGA writers working, will be locked during the strike. The show has a series of previously taped original episodes airing this week and part of next week, but there will be reruns after that.

from NBC Universal The Kelly Clarkson Show also has guild writers – but pre-records episodes and so has a range of shows to draw from. The Drew Barrymore Showdistributed by CBS Media Ventures, has completed production in the season.

The WGA called the strike Monday night, the day the contract expired, after negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which represents studios and streamers, fell through. Among other things, the union is asking media companies for more residues for streaming programs, more transparency about the streaming audience, minimum occupancy of writers’ rooms and regulations on the use of artificial intelligence in writing.
