Networks Plot Post-Strike Plans: 36 (And Counting) to Resume Production
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- With the strike on track to be lifted tomorrow, the broadcast networks are hard at work reconciling their plans for the rest of the 2007-08 season and beyond.

While exact details are still several days away, the consensus seems to be tentpole shows like "Grey's Anatomy," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "The Office" will be back on the air in late March or early April. The rest - mostly first-year offerings and returning shows on the bubble - then will sit on the shelf but remain under consideration for next season.

Here's a breakdown of each network's plans, all of which obviously are subject to change. As always, keep an eye on our strike guide for the latest information.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: This page will not be updated after this week. Episode counts reflect the number of installments remaining going into the evening of Tuesday, February 12.]
