I read the article, and the shows are not over. No offense to any of you in this thread, but starting the rumor mill, and saying the shows are over, when they aren't is not helping the shows at all. People read stuff like this, and assume it's true, and they stop watching.
I think there are so many out there that, (not saying any of you guys) for whatever reason, want these shows to fail, and continue spinning these little behind the scenes goings on, as doom and gloom. I'm sure things like this happen with other productions, but don't get the media attention.
It sounds like they were planning a hiatus all along, and now it's just a week earlier. I wouldn't feel sorry for the actors, (yet) because judging by their twitter feeds, they all seem pretty happy, and confident about their jobs.
