And Late Night with Seth Meyers let go The New York Times It is known that the shows are going to repeat old broadcasts. There are also talk shows on HBO hosted by John Oliver and Bill Maher The Daily Show from Comedy Central, at least for Tuesday night reruns.
The strike announced Monday night by the Writers Guild of America (WGA), the union that represents thousands of writers for film and television, is the first significant effect of the reruns on viewers. Depending on how long the strike lasts, the effects of non-live and yet-to-be-produced series and films will be noticed. A previous strike, in 2007, took about two months for late-night talk shows to gradually return to TV.
The strike was prompted by stalled negotiations with major studios represented by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. Along with that, the WGA negotiated, among other things, remuneration for writers’ work. The WGA also requires rules regarding the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in creating scripts and scenes.
