doubt it, surely the monday episode would be written before monday.

not to mention, Jay's a comedian. He could write himself if he needed to.

I don't think a Writer's Strike will keep shows like this off the air, just make it hard on them.

If there is a strike, tapings of The Tonight Show will be Halted IMMEDIATELY.

If they strike today, then tonight's taping at 5 PM PST will be cancelled.

If they strike effective Monday, and a settlement is not reached over the weekend, then Monday's show with Garth WILL BE CANCELLED.

I just spoke with someone at The Tonight Show, and they confirmed this.

If you hear that they are on strike, effective either today or by Monday, then unless they settle over the weekend, the episode airing Monday night will be a rerun!

Most talk shows write the bulk of their material on the day of the taping. That's how they can always interject jokes about the news events of that day.

Also, don't forget that Jay Leno is credited as one of the writer's of the Tonight Show. If they go on strike, he goes on strike.

SoCalGarthFan is right, if the writer's strike on Monday, there will be no new Tonight Show's until it is resolved.

Do you really think that Jay would go on a writing strike for his own show? I don't.

You're probably right. Jay Leno is a comedy writer and would support the strike, he would never cross a picket line just for the sake of his show. Since the Burbank Studios are quite large and a lot of shows are done there, I assume that will be one of the sites where the writers will form picket lines.
Garth is also a big advocate of writers (song writers and all other writers) being treated fairly, so I believe he would honor the writers strike and not cross a picket line.

Regardless of what you think, or want to think, if there is a Writer's Strike, then there is No Tonight Show.

Would be ironic and somewhat depressing, after the efforts they went through to accomodate Garth's appearance on Monday. And before you say that since it's Garth, they'll still go through with Monday's show, guess again. No writers = No show.

Well hopefully they can get a last minute deal that will advert the strike, or perhaps they can replace the tonight show, with a one hour interview with Garth.

Talks on Sunday, but don't know if it will help in time :( ...

Both sides agreed late Friday to meet with a federal mediator on Sunday in a last-ditch effort to avoid a strike. The meeting will take place at a neutral location to be determined, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071103/ap_en_tv/hollywood_labor

The union representing Hollywood writers announced Friday that it will begin its strike against studios Monday morning, at 12:01 a.m. PT, unless a last-minute contract deal is reached. A federal mediator late Friday called for an 11th-hour negotiating session between Hollywood writers and producers in a last-ditch effort to head off a strike...The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said the Sunday meeting will take place at a neutral location to be determined.

Well, if the last ditch effort with the mediator fails, then here's some proof that talk shows like Jay Leno's will be the strike's first and immediate casualty.

Thats because he wont be in the studio, he will be interviewed by Jay Elsewhere.

Lets hope there is a last minute deal.

Are you sure about that?

I'm pretty sure he was supposed to be at the studio.

I think the reason he's not listed for Monday is because they are already showing which reruns they are gonna air, because it includes Keith Urban for next week and he was just on there a couple weeks ago?

Danae =)

The calender must be showing the repeats because my Direct TV guide says Tommy Lee Jones and Garth. And the rest of the week is diffrent too so I'm guessing they updated the calender with what they plan to show during the strike. This does stink and I'm sure Garth is upset about it but I would think he would rechudle when the strike is over, I would hope anyway.

Fingers and toes crossed for a last minute deal.

LOL Hey, we don't need writers, or Jay for that matter, give Garth the hour to perform. Heck, Garth made them millions with all his specials in the 90's thru commercials that ran.

I just heard on the radio that Garth's interview will go on as planned. Garth called Leno and asked if he could move the time from 5:00 pm to 1:00 so because he had to be in KC later today. This comes from "Nashville Kat" that does the "Nitty Gritty from Music City" blurb on my radio station. Usually there's a link on their site, but it's not updated yet.

Well, honestly I think that's just wishful thinking that he'll still be on as planned. I mean, with the writers' strike isn't The Tonight Show, along with just about every other show, going to be reruns until the strike is over? And I mean, we already knew either last week or the week before about Leno moving the taping up to 1pm from 5pm to accomodate Garth, so that's not new news to anyone here.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I don't see how Garth's appearance on Leno can go on as planned with the strike going on....

I think your radio station is misinformed.

Well, it's official.

They just announced on MSNBC that both Jay Leno & Conan O'Brien's shows will air re-runs "until further notice" due to the strike. I don't have a link, but they reported that the announcement came straight from Jay's & Conan's reps in Burbank & New York.

To anyone who flew out to Cali to see Garth's appearance, I am truly very sorry. At least there's the RIAA event, so maybe it won't be a total loss.
