Carlton Cuse by Craig Sjodin/ABC Carlton Cuse by Craig Sjodin/ABC

Whatever you think about the writers strike, ya gotta feel for guys like Lost writer-producer Carlton Cuse. As a writer, he's on strike. But as a producer... mmm. Not so much. So even though he's a member of the WGA's negotiating committee, he's returning to work, at least to do some post-production on the eight episodes that have already been shot. "We feel we owe that to our fans," he tells the Wall Street Journal. "We would harm our franchise if we didn't do it ourselves." Who'll be next to punch back in? We'll keep you posted... In other strike news, um, did they just hear about it in Canada? Bionic Woman, which shoots in Vancouver, powered down just last week, and Battlestar Galactica wraps early up north this Friday... And although the Hollywood Reporter says that secret meetings are taking place that would bring the hosts of the Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O'Brien back to their desks, nothing is expected to happen before Thanksgiving. - Ben Katner
