No further talks scheduled between writers and studios

Here’s what happened on Day One of the writers’ strike: more than 3,000 men and women walked the picket line in Los Angeles; talk shows like The Tonight Show, Ellen, and The Daily Show shut down; a guild member was struck by an expletive-hurling driver while walking the picket line in Hollywood.

Here’s what didn’t happen on Monday: a deal between the producers and the writers. What’s more, no further talks were scheduled. But there were some (small) victories on Monday.

    I am not surprised the studios don’t want to pay the writers. I saw a news story last night and the picketers were chanting something like “they’ve got more money than they can count. What do we call them: Paramount”. Seriously, if you are a professional writer and that is the best chant you can come up with, maybe you don’t deserve a raise.
