With the television and movie writers' strike in its second week, and more and more shows shutting down, you may be suffering from TV withdrawal and asking yourself "Why?" (Which is a funny question to ask yourself, unless you are a arbitrator who specializes in entertainment industry collective bargaining disputes, of course.)
But because you are most likely another mouth-breather who likes to watch television, you probably don't understand the reasons behind the writers strike. So please enjoy this video made by a Daily Show writer that explains the strike in easy to understand terms and is kind of funny.
Many more hysterical/interesting videos here, including ones starring Todd Bridges from Diff'rnt Strokes!
