Some programs are benefiting from the writers' strike. Like ABC's "Cavemen," the Tuesday comedy widely viewed as the worst new show of the season.
If it hadn't been for the chances of a strike, it probably would have been history by now. But all the networks are hanging on to their new shows because they'll be scrambling if the strike continues into 2008.
The one exception was CBS' "Viva Laughlin," which was canceled after two low-rated episodes.
Locally, "Cavemen" hit rock bottom Tuesday, getting a 2.8 rating on Channel 7. That's the kind of rating that usually leads to cancellation.
What do you think of "Cavemen" - or have you thought at all about it?
