All lists are subjective. You don’t know what was going through someone’s head at any given time, but when a schlocky series like ER ranks higher than Deadwood? Fighting words. There is a lot on this recently compiled list from the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) that I agree with, but I’m sorry, how ER landed at… read more


Anyone ready for “Strike 2008 Round 2”? It seems those lovable, huggable folks at the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP) have walked away from the table talks with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), just as they did at the end of the last year with the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA). According… read more

Well, it looks like it’s all over.  The Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) didn’t get exactly what they wanted the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP), but close enough. So, when do you get new TV shows?  The Watch With Kristin column over at E! has a huge list done show-by-show, but basically,… read more

I haven’t talked much about the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) strike because there isn’t much going on. There have been talks with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP), and apparently there has been some movement, but nothing definite as of yet. The WGA did release the following letter to their members… read more

It appears with the success the Director’s Guild of America (DGA) had in their negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP) has led to the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) asking to go back to the negotiation table.  Apparently talks could resume as early as this Tuesday. I had wondered if… read more

Well, I think it was more a slap in the face than anything, but the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP) has already settled their negotiations with the Director’s Guild of America (DGA) after only six days of negotiations.  It seems the directors are getting a bump to their DVD residuals, and they’re… read more

WGA Strike Week 9

I haven’t touched heavily on the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) strike the past couple of weeks due to the holidays, but it’s time for another roundup of what’s going on because now people are showing their fangs. As I mentioned in my post, Return of the Late Night Talk Shows, Leno admitted to writing… read more

We’re in week 7 of the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) strike.  And we have a new wrinkle: The late night shows on NBC are coming back without the writers.

There… read more

Welcome to week 5 of the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) strike. Where is everything at? On Tuesday, the WGA will return to negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP). The last talks resulted in an insulting, and quickly rejected, offer to the writers. There is a lot of speculation that… read more

I am sure the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP) felt their offer to the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) would make it look like they are the ones trying to seriously settle the ongoing writer’s strike, but, alas, their offer was a joke. Dubbed the “New Economic Partnership”, according to an anonymous… read more
