He totally makes up for it though:

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Studio...

If you're still confused at all as to why high paid entertainment industry workers are even bothering to strike:

In related news, Deadline Hollywood reports that assistants at Fox are upset at the strikers for costing them overtime pay and regular hourly pay in increments as much ass 15 minutes. They obviously don't start their day by reading the United Hollywood Blog. In fact, studio execs are so desperate to win back the writers, they're even resorting to Craigs List posts in the "Missed Connections" section:

Hi! You were the neurotic, quiet and nerdy writer picketing outside the studio this morning! Did you write that sign yourself? That was so clever. I was the Big, Bad Studio Monster that paid you exorbitant amounts of money up front, then denied you a piece of the back end. Then I ignored all your requests to negotiate and tried to bully you into a deal! Can we kiss and make up? Please? I think we can work some magic together if we both just put our egos aside. Who cares about the Below the Line people? We're above it for a REASON!!!

Also from Deadline Hollywood:

#1 Favorite Picket Line Chant was at Fox: "How much you earnin', Peter Chernin?"

My #2 favorite picket chant of the day: "We write the story-a / for Eva Longoria".
