News Brief

Minneapolis Star Tribune: If writers strike, expect more reality TV. Soap operas like "The Young and the Restless," viewed by some 6 million people a day, typically have a monthlong backlog of episodes. Because of their serial nature, soap operas do not perform well in repeats. Networks say they would try to maintain ratings during the day in the event of a strike by substituting more news and sports programming.

PR Newswire: Highlights of the week-long "Green is Universal" program at Universal Studios Hollywood will include a presentation of the Environmental Media Association's Green Seal Certificate, the first to be awarded by the industry group to a theme park. The presentation will be made by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and TV's Alison Sweeney, an Environmental Media Association supporter, star of NBC's "Days of Our Lives" and host of the network's popular primetime series, "The Biggest Loser."

AfterElton: Liveblogging "As the World Turns": There's No Place Like Home Edition.

PGP Blog: Where Are They Now: Tony Craig (Draper, "The Edge of Night").
