"Comedy Central just announced that The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The
Colbert Report will return with new episodes on January 7. The shows will return
without writers. This means that Letterman and Ferguson are the only ones who
aren't coming back as of yet. They have a meeting on Friday with the WGA."
The hand writing is on the wall, I think that some of the writers involved in this strike will be lucky just to have jobs writing by the time this is over. The worst thing in the world, is to believe that things can't go on without you and leave. Just to find out that things do go on without you.
The networks are watching this, and they are going to find that they can spend less on writing, not more.
