What’s the Effect?

One of the key provisions that the Writers Guild of America secured was a minimum staffing level guarantee. Exempt from that are shows in which all episodes are written by a single writer.

Will the provision:

  1. Improve the quality of scripted shows
  2. Reduce the quality of scripted shows
  3. Both (improve some; reduce others)
  4. Have no effect

I think that scripts written by focus groups or committees other than sitcoms become worse the more writers are involved in the process. Option D would be an indictment of writers 9in general.

I should add that otherwise I have no problem with what the WGA achieved.
