The end of the strike doesn't mean good news for everyone, mind you. ABC's Women's Murder Club, whose fate seems super-iffy, has let go of three executive producers, including co-creators/co-showrunner Elizabeth Craft says the Reporter. (Ausiello might want to revisit that "less than 0.015 percent chance of survival" mentioned in today's fresh AA.)Another of the net's freshman offerings, Big Shots, is "not expected to continue," says the trade. But, reports my dream, Charisma is being spun off onto her own show: "The Comely Stranded Motorist."Related:• Ask Ausiello: "I'm almost afraid to ask: What's happening to our beloved Angie Harmon and Women's Murder Club?"
Question: I'm a frequent reader of your articles. However, I was very unhappy and continue to be unhappy with your reviews of Big Shots. Of course, it is not the best writing in the world, but it is not god-awful, either. I'm no TV reviewer, but I have watched a lot of TV, including some really horrible shows in my time, and this is not one of them. Let's face it: Not all the shows you give positive reviews are as great as you say. Personally, I would rather shoot myself in the head than watch two seconds of Grey's Anatomy or its stupid spin-off. But this is about giving us Big Shots lovers a little bit of respect. I understand that it is your job to watch and give your opinion on TV shows, but can you scale back on the criticism? You're not only insulting the show but the people, like me, who really enjoy it.

With production halted on Big Shots (tonight at 10 pm/ET, ABC) by the writers' strike, the penultimate episode airs tonight. Which makes it a good time to assess the series with one of its four leads, Joshua Malina, who's been busy in ways that would be alien to the hapless Karl — "arguably the jerkiest" of the series' four tycoons, admits Malina. The father of two has been preoccupied with "field trips, class plays and being in total daddy mode."
TV Guide: So will Big Shots be renewed?Joshua Malina: It's a hot topic among the four of us. I'm doing an ABC promo shoot. I take that as hopeful. We're having so much fun together, it would be a shame to end. If I'm going to work, I'm going to laugh.

Thursday's first-run highlights:8 pm/ETUgly Betty topped the hour with 10 million total viewers, a gain of 600K from its last fresh episode (Dec. 6). The last new 30 Rock (blargh) drew six mil, a 420 thou increase from Dec. 13.9 pmCSI was No. 1 in viewers (18.1 mil, down 1.7 from Dec. 13), while Grey's Anatomy (17.6 mil) claimed the lead in key demos. Week 2 of Celebrity Apprentice, delivering 8.1 mil, plunged 26 percent from its premiere.10 pmWithout a Trace (13.2 mil, slipping almost two mil from Dec. 13) bested ER (9.1 mil), though NBC eked out a win in demos. The oft-delayed arrival of Charisma Carpenter (I would like to think) led Big Shots to a 27 percent gain over its previous episode. (Though the audience for ABC's freshman series now stands at just 6.8 mil, making a big deal out of the increase gives me an excuse to run the photo above right.)
