If the WGA strike marches on into the new year, CBS - which on Monday unveiled a somewhat lackluster "strike schedule" for January/February - may solicit some Showtime programming to freshen its slate. According to the Hollywood Reporter, CBS Corp. president and CEO Leslie Moonves said at a Tuesday investor conference that " Dexter is probably the first one to go on - with some edits." (Gee, you think?) "It fits with our crime shows."

At minimum, Dex might just be called upon to kill off the entire cast of Cane.
