As the writers' strike wages on in Hollywood, it appears that the endings of some of America's beloved shows could remain unresolved this season. Will viewers have to come up with their own season finales?

In an article published Monday in New York Magazine, television writers imagine alternative endings to some of this season's favorite shows.


Danny Chun, writer for the Simpsons; wrote an alternative ending for The Office

Sarah Kuscerka, writer for Ugly Betty; wrote an alternative ending for Gossip Girl

Lauren Gussis, writer for Dexter; wrote an alternative ending for Grey's Anatomy
