* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' ended abruptly without really ending the season; on the other hand, since it was used as a midseason replacement, the absence of competitors may have helped it gain an audience. It was renewed for another season.

** And aren't we all happy about that?



* ''OutOfJimmysHead'' was cancelled, but considering this was the first series to mark the NetworkDecay of CartoonNetwork, that may have been considered [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing a good thing...]]
* Speaking of CN, this was one of the contributing factors (others being going over-budget and a lawsuit) that led to the premature end of ''WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000'' as most of the writers were with the WGA. To add insult to injury 2007 was the year the show had premiered, pretty much dooming it right out the gate.

Speaking of CN, this was one of the contributing factors (others being going over-budget and a lawsuit) that led to the premature end of ''WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000'' shortly after it premiered, as most of the writers were with the WGA. To add insult to injury 2007 was the year the show had premiered, pretty much dooming it right out the gate. WGA.

It’s been rumored that the nasty, drunken clowns from ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' (1941) who decide to “hit the big boss for a raise” are a TakeThat at the striking animators.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' didn’t escape strike action. That season saw “Shada” ultimately cancelled after strike action prevented the second and third studio session from taking place, although in that case it was a tube strike, not an industry one. The completed portions were released on VHS in 1992, and eventually done as an audio drama for the Eighth Doctor in 2003.

During the writers’ strike, the Screen Actors Guild went on strike as well. This one only lasted six weeks, and is notable for having been led by then-SAG President UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, of all people -- which becomes HilariousInHindsight given Reagan's later fame as a champion of the free market and opponent of labor unions while [[ThePresidents President of the United States]].

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' carried on and bashed the strike in one episode, in which the [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything World Canadian Bureau (WGA) encourages Canadians to strike for “more money”]]. Many animated programs, including ''South Park'', were written under a different union than the WGA.

* The re-imagined ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' was halted mid-season, and Earth, which was supposedly to be shown in the next-to-last episode, ended up appearing in the midseason finale.

Because TV involves [[UsefulNotes/UnionsInHollywood unionized people]], and unionized people sometimes go on strike. When the Writers’ Guild of America (WGA) goes on strike, this largely shuts down the Hollywood process, since writers are needed for script rewrites on-set and act-er, teamsters aren’t keen to cross picket lines (in fact, they have it in their contract that they’re immune to punishment should they honor any picket line). Strikes come as a result of bargaining falling apart with management, as represented by the UsefulNotes/{{AMPTP}}.

* Because Britain and Australia (and presumably other countries as well) ended up with less American content than they were expecting, some channels relaunched old shows, leading to a new season of both local versions of ''Series/{{Gladiators}}'' and the still-running reboot of ''Series/GoodNewsWeek''.

The result was the nearly total shut down of ITV for ten weeks (10 August to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZvrWCIbpMU 5.43pm on 24 October]]) and the loss of around £100m in revenue for the striking companies. Channel Television sustained itself with extended regional news bulletins and Western movies.

** Which led to the hilarious {{crossover}} episodes between ''TDS'', ''TCR'' and ''Late Night' culminating in a fake fight between Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, and Conan O’Brien.
