No movement on Letterman waivers yet

Burnett As you probably gleaned from the WGA statement below, no decision appeared to come out of today's talks between Worldwide Pants and the Writers Guild.

Worldwide Pants is looking to secure a waiver for "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," both of which the company owns; topper Rob Burnett (left) has been increasingly vocal that he believes the company deserves an "interim agreement" to bring the shows' writers back to work.

In a statement, Burnett said the two sides will continue to negotiate next week: "We had a substantive discussion today with the WGA and look forward to continuing these talks next week."
