After months that saw us lose a ton of television entertainment and, by some analysis, over $2 billion in revenue, the Writers Strike is finally over, having been settled late last night. Now, we wait to find out when our favorite shows roll back into production, and back on screen.

Luckily, we have all of the up-to-date information on those schedules. The good news? More Lost and The Office this year. The bad? Perhaps no more Scrubs ever, and we're going to have to wait another year to see a new season of 24.

Peep the list. Let us know what you think.
