ABSTRACT
This article reports on the decline in the production of television sitcoms. Scores of sitcom writers are out of work because the five networks are airing only 19 live-action comedies next season, almost half as many as last year and barely more than one-third of what the nets ran in 1996. To avoid the unemployment line, comedy writers have been urged to either produce scripts that are independent of both studios and paychecks or try screenwriting.
