Elizabeth Wagmeister Chief Correspondent As Drew Barrymore digs herself into a deeper hole regarding the return of her daytime talk show, lost in the debate is a conversation about the peculiar nature of syndicated TV. One week ago, Barrymore ignited a firestorm when she announced her talk show would be returning amid the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

Things are getting desperate — Bill Maher & Drew Barrymore are getting flamed on social media for resuming their shows, sans writers. Their reasoning; after five months without a paycheck waiting for the guilds and studios to make a deal, employees on those shows who are not members of the guilds are starving.
