How could they run out of ideas with "the swinging 60's"? I'd think that would give them fresh new ideas instead.

What does "heavily negotiating" mean? Was Carmine trying to get the most money for his role?

I interpreted "Heavily negotiating" as meaning wanting more money or perks. From what i have read over the years, Eddie Mekka, Betty Garrett, and Phil Foster were teh only castmembers who acted like professionals on the show. I can understand how Eddie would have thought that he was entitled to more than he was getting under those circumstances. Also, he did eventually get a shot for a Carmine-focused pilot, through the "Hair Today" episode, which unfortunately didn't sell.
