  • Writers Guild of America

    The Writers Guild strike is 12 weeks old and wreaking havoc on the TV biz. There's no new scripted programming. The Oscars are less than a month away, and with no promises yet from the WGA that they won't picket, there are serious fears it could turn into another movie-clip heavy press conference. We've got reality TV alright, tons of it--but the viewers aren't satisfied.

  • Economic concerns are making Wall Street nervous about the media sector. Today analysts at Goldman Sachs and Sanford Bernstein issued negative reports on the broad media sector. GS's Anthony Noto reduced estimates across communications, media and entertainment sectors.

  • Yet another sign of the convergence of content and technology: For the first time, a cable company CEO made a keynote speech at CES. This morning, Comcast spacer chief Brian Roberts announced a new strategy, calling it Comcast 3.0.

    The late night shows had their second night return to the airwaves and the networks are glad they are back after the two month hiatus.

    Happy 2008! I'm back from my travels and have spent the day reading up on all the news I missed while away (though news of Benazir Bhutto's assassination was everywhere, the international press doesn't follow Hollywood labor negotiations as closely).

    Now that the press blackout has been lifted on the Writers Guild strike talks, we're getting some insight into the ongoing haggling over offers and counteroffers. Last night the WGA released analysis of the producers association, the AMPTP's deal, saying that it would cost the companies $151 million over three years, and some studios would pay very little--MGM would pay only an additional $320,000 per year to writers.
