The Hollywood writers strike has entered its third day, causing late-night comedy shows to remain off the air.

Negotiations between the studios and the writers have reached a standstill as the writers refuse to back down from their demands.

The main issue at the center of the strike is compensation, with the changing nature of the way shows are delivered being a significant factor.

With streaming shows typically only consisting of 8-9 episodes, compared to the 20 episodes traditionally seen in a broadcast season, writers say they have to work harder to make a living.

Additionally, residuals, which are payments made to writers and production staff as a show continues to make profits, are not as high in streaming as they are in broadcast, leaving writers feeling underpaid.

The studios and the writers are currently far apart on their respective positions, but studios have said they are prepared for this and have a lot of production already shot and ready to air.
