I'm not sure if writers are still on strike (hasn't been in the news) or everything on TV is just repeats.

 

I mostly miss Fallon and Colbert. I record them to watch the following day.

The WGA strike continues today.  I've walked by picket lines at several locations recently.

 

The DGA just renegotiated a contract and SAG-AFTRA talks are said to be very productive in order to avoid a strike.  If they settle, I imagine the WGA would settle shortly on similar terms.

@Shanus 

The Writer's strike is still ongoing, negotiations have failed, it's on our local news station daily.

@Shanus   The writers strike continues and now there are other groups threatening strikes as well.

I hope they settle this soon. Bad enough there is nothing on right now but to delay it going into the fall would be ridiculous Woman Frustrated

Yes, the picket lines are still at the entrance of every studio. 

 

Interestingly, a new wrinkle ... people driving by see the picketers and beep their horns like crazy, to offer support.  Now there are a few official-looking signs warning that "excessive car horn noise" will be ticketed. 

 

I guess the studios' neighbors are tired of the car horns, no matter how much they support the writers.   Can you blame them?  lol

I am in NYC, Manhattan. 

 

There are pickets periodically at NBC in Rockefeller Center, Netflix headquarters,  HBO headquarters and Amazon offices.

 

I think there are other picket locations at studios in Brooklyn.

It's my impression that many writers have been on strike since the mid-90s.
