You wanna know why the AMPTP had to hire a PR firm that costs more than $250,000 a month to help them "handle" the writer's strike? Because all of their talent walked out. If you are wondering whether it is the actors or the writers that bring your favorite characters to life...I'd say stop. It's like asking which came first: the chicken or the egg? And who cares. The one thin we do know is that the producers don't know squat. If they had any talent at all they wouldn't be producers.
Take a look at this clip from Writer's Guild of America (WGA) on how the AMPTP is handling the strike. And Kudos to Letterman, boo-hiss to Carson Daly, Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien (whom no one watches anyway...get real).
