Day 61: WGA's Strike; Wayans Bros. Coming to ION Television; Veoh.com Adds Full Episodes of TV Series

Today is the 61st day of the writers' strike. Jay Leno might be in a bit trouble for writing his own jokes this week. The WGA released this statement:
"A discussion took place today between Jay Leno and the Writers Guild to clarify to him that writing for The Tonight Show constitutes a violation of the Guilds' strike rules."

The hit '90s sitcom The Wayans Bros. starring Shawn and Marlon Wayans is coming to ION Television starting Monday, January 14, 2008. The sitcom will air back-to-back each weeknight at 6:00pm & 6:30pm ET/PT replacing Amen. The series also starred Anna Maria Horsford, who was also on Amen. So you'll still get your daily Anna Maria Horsford fix. No other changes will be made as of now. So we have back-to-back sitcoms each weeknight with The Wayans Bros, Alice, Mama's Family, Drew Carey Show, and Who's the Boss from 6-11pm.
