Here’s the news from the New York Times:

The new season of the Fox series “24” has been officially postponed for a year. And another serialized hit, NBC’s “Heroes,” will probably not produce any further new episodes this season.

Another of television’s most popular serialized dramas, ABC’s “Lost,” will probably cut its planned 16-episode season to about 13 episodes.

Other potential poststrike developments include an extension of several shows past May, the traditional end of the season, and a relatively quick turnaround for some comedy series like “Two and a Half Men” on CBS and “The Office” on NBC. Much longer waits are likely for the return of top dramas like “Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC and “CSI” on CBS.

“You really won’t know if damage was done until fall,” one senior network executive said. “That’s when we’ll see if the audience comes back.”

At least we’ll get a little more Lost, but no more Heroes until the fall!
