Following the lead of David Letterman’s Late Show scribes, the entire writing staff of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson will donate a percentage of their salaries to the WGA Strike Fund and the Actors Fund every month until the strike ends, I’m told today. “But we’ll do so an hour later and with less fanfare, mainly because we don’t have a band.” Letterman’s and Ferguson’s writing staffs are the only striking scribes the only strikers thus far allowed by the WGA to go back to work because of an interim agreement signed by Dave’s production company Worldwide Pants, which owns both The Late Show and the Late Late Show. (See my previous, Letterman Scribes To Fatten Strike Fund.)
