CBS People's Choice Awards promos are the latest victims of the Writers Strike

Next month’s People’s Choice Awards ceremony on CBS already sounds like it’s going to be a disaster without writers on-hand to make Jessica Alba sound witty(ish).

But it’s even worse than you imagined. Check out this screenshot I took from the commercial that’s advertising the event as a night with “all your favorites from movies, music and…”

T-E-L-E-V-I-S-O-N, people.

So in addition to the writers’ strike, there also appears to be a concurrent copy editors’ strike going on as well. And both have apparently resulted in such a catastrophic loss of revenue that all access to Merriam-Webster Online has been cut off.
