Variety: The effects of the writers strike are starting to show up in year-to-year ratings comparisons: In a week when Fox dominated thanks to AMERICAN IDOL and to a good start for lie-detector reality series MOMENT OF TRUTH, the broadcast industry as a whole limped across the finish line.

Huffington Post: Writer Lynn Grossman writes: "The only chant I've heard since we began the (writer's) strike was a small chorus of 'Heigh ho, scabs must go!' during a large demonstration against ALL MY CHILDREN, but I'm pretty sure that was led by a contingent of SAG members who were picketing with us that day. Although we're a fiercely committed group, pep on the picket line, it seems, is not a writerly thing."
