Scenes from the Strike Front, Day Three

I hit the big showrunner picket early this morning at Disney's front Alameda gate in Burbank... talk about a who's who of TV executive producers.

Finally, a positive development to come out of the writers strike: A kumbayah moment between Monday night 8 p.m. rivals "Chuck" (Josh Schwartz, center) and "How I Met Your Mother" (Craig Thomas, left, and Carter Bays, right).

Winner, best sign of the morning's picket, goes to "Lost" exec producer Carlton Cuse.

"Private Practice" exec producer Marti Noxon notes that "fake doctors" support the WGA.

"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane. Can you imagine how much that picket sign would fetch on EBay?! Hope he held on to it.

"The Riches" creator Dmitry Lipkin has a "Norma Rae" moment.

One of the most interviewed showrunners at the strike line: "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry.

The scene this morning: Chock full o' showrunners at Disney.
