    Writers Guild of America

    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.

    It was a crazy weekend in college football. We know that No. 1 Missouri and No. 2 West Virginia went down and out of all the teams that will travel to their bowl games, LSU has Les Miles than anyone else (OK, it would have been better if his name was Fewer Miles.) So who were the financial winners? Here's the best list I could compile.

    Oh darn, the buzz in Hollywood was so optimistic when the writers and producers returned to the bargaining table on Monday.

  • HD DVD Vs. Blu-ray: Who Will Win on Black Friday? Wednesday, 21 Nov 2007 | 2:26 PM ET
    Black Friday

    Black Friday is a big day for DVD and player sales but some people may be confused. If you buy "Ratatouille" in high def, you've gotta have a Blu-ray player. If the new high def "Transformers" is your thing, that Blu-ray player on your PS3 is totally useless, you need an HD DVD player.

  • Hey Canada, What's Up With The French And Celsius Talk? Thursday, 15 Nov 2007 | 2:56 PM ET

    I'm still in Vancouver, covering the fallout from Canada's strong dollar. There's not a single freeway in Vancouver. Traffic is terrible. One local complained to me, "How can we be a world-class city with no freeways? We are run by tree hugger idiots." One of the best things about Canada is a TV show called "Canada's Worst Driver."

  • No Money, No Downloads, No Peace! Monday, 5 Nov 2007 | 7:30 PM ET

  • Hollywood Writer's Strike A Bad "Script" For All Monday, 5 Nov 2007 | 2:25 PM ET
    Writers Guild of America

    The Writers Guild contract expired at midnight--though there's no strike just yet, it is NOT looking good. The rhetoric last night was so angry and stubborn on both sides, I'm predicting a strike by mid-week next week. The WGA says the producers association "refused to continue to bargain until we agree that the hated DVD formula be extended to Internet downloads." HATED? Ouch.
