We manage several client accounts......since midnight last night...the 10th.... all impressions have pretty much stopped. Not just for one client but for all of them........
Please tell me this is just a glitch.....

Are you still receiving clicks on google search etc but nothing for content?
It's the content network that has stopped for us but were still getting clicks on google search. Content is still selected to show ads but there obviously not showing.

I can't remember how I decided it the QS and not something else that stopped the content traffic - but it was hot news at the time. It was easy to spot the Keywords being turned off on search (£10 minimum bids)
Even though I have content Disabled, I'm getting impressions and clicks. Double-checked to make sure since I made a change last night and content IS disabled. Yet, I'm getting clicks! (and presumably will be charged). But I don't want content enabled right now!
Anyone ever run into this before? And what can I do about it?
I'd hang on and not make any changes in your campaigns.
But it's like someone flipped the switch at 1am this morning.
Millions of impressions yesterday.... today a few thousand so far.
Something is messed up....
Anyone else have good quality score for search, and notice this drop in content traffic?
In any event, it is 9am in california, so I am going to give my rep a call.

My advice: do not change anything in your account.

Adsense sux compared to yesterday too.. I'm seeing a bunch of different advertisers on my site.
I recommend that you 'diversify' your advertising tee hee.
Coincidentally I reduced my daily budget by 50% last night. I thought that was the culprit at first, so I returned the budget to the original amount about mid-morning. So far, no change in traffic.
Content impressions and clicks are almost non-existent.

This sound a bit like it could be the QS content algorithm.
The evidence doesn't point to that assumption. Google's been experiencing technical outages for the last few days, especially related to it's content network. The evidence overwhelmingly points to a technical issue that's affecting the content network bidding in AdWords.
Also, a lot of affiliate types of sites that run adsense were hit very hard recently, so that may be a factor as well.

Ads are showing just fine on my website. Not one single timeout noticed today.
But again, a lot of the ads are from different advertisers.
Are you guys that are having a content click drop bidding above or below 10cents? My bids are at 2cents.
At about 10am, 4 of my 18 content campaigns kicked on.
Emailed support at 5pm and said hey what is up with the rest?
Lost about $100 profit so far today hope it doesn't get much worse. Bad enough had to go through the last 3 weeks at 50% revenue from Christmas.
The shard effect would explain it.
Now lets see if they actually fix it or screw the small percentage.
