tvbigshot.jpgstyle=I'm guessing that many of our readers play TVBigshot, TelevisionWithoutPity's, TV mogul "stock market" game. If not, its definitely worth checking out.

For those of you who do, read on for some advice on your show buying and selling.

Writer's Strike Show Status

Many shows are running out of episodes because of the WGA writers strike, don't leave shows in your network with no fresh episodes. We've got an updated show by show status here, but here are a few notable shows and their situations.

The Office - no more fresh episodes, sell it if you haven't already.

Big Bang Theory - no more fresh episodes, sell it if you haven't already.

Grey's Anatomy - Repeat on 11/29, New episode on 12/13, One new in Jan. Sell it after the 12/13 episode.

House - After tonight's (11/26) episode, it's in reruns with 3 fresh episodes held for January.

Chuck - After a new episode on 12/3, its two remaining new episodes will be held till sometime in 2008.

CSI - After a new episode on 12/6, its two remaining new episodes will be held till sometime in 2008.

Brothers & Sisters - Four more fresh episodes to air through mid-January. Hold it till then.

Samantha Who? Trade

Tonight ABC debut's the new Notes From the Underbelly, it'll follow Dancing and Samantha. However, Samantha Who? moves opposite Two and a Half Men, and I've got to believe its ratings will suffer somewhat. I'd buy Underbelly and sell Samantha for the night.

Fishing for Bonus Points

If you aren't already, you should be fishing for bonus points.

Referring to our Top Broadcast shows lists, you can find the shows likely to grab the "Top 5" bonus points each week.

Look at our past Overnight Ratings posts to see which shows are consistent timeslot winners for the "Timeslot Win" bonus points.

Our New Show ratings and momentum is a great place to find shows who's ratings are increasing to get a bit of the "Ratings Growth" bonus points.

Good Gaming Everyone!
