The late night shows are coming back on the air, either under a bye from the WGA or without writers. The Comedy Central line-up reappeared last night.
An interesting tidbit from Bill Carter and Jacques Steinberg in the New York Times, Comedy Central Hosts Return to TV:
Like the other hosts whose shows have been picketed by the guild, including Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien on NBC and Jimmy Kimmel on ABC, Mr. Stewart and Mr. Colbert had been paying the salaries of nonwriting staff members out of their own pockets.I wonder how long that sort of support will be coming to the writers. And aren't they lucky that their bosses are so supportative. Not everyone is in the same boat, I'm sure.
Meantime, I've decided not to stop writing. I'm sure there are plenty of readers who wish I would stop and the WGA would start.
