The Daily Show and The Colbert Report return tonight, sans writers! Let the madness begin! I’m imagining Stephen with an uproariously ridiculous fake Strike Beard, perhaps in the style of a different famous political leader each time they return from commercial break.
In the meantime, there is hope on the horizon! The WGA and United Artists have agreed to sign an interim deal, allowing striking feature writers to begin work for the studio — and opening the door for other indies such as the Weinstein Co. and Lionsgate to follow suit.
This should put pressure on other studios to do the same, lest they fall behind. HECK YES.
