Letterman Makes Deal With Striking Writers

Break­ing news from late-night TV land:

Most of the late-night com­e­dy shows are going back on the air Jan­u­ary 2, how­ev­er CBS will be the only one with writ­ers. I still can’t fath­om how John Stew­art and Stephen Col­bert are going to cope with­out their writ­ing staff – my fear is that both shows will be slight­ly more awk­ward ver­sions of Char­lie Rose, (if that’s pos­si­ble), with bet­ter pro­duc­tion val­ues.

Kudos to Dave’s nego­tia­tors, and let’s hope that the big­ger com­pa­nies step for­ward and offer to work out some­thing rea­son­able as well.

People David LettermanUPDATE: Dave kept the beard! This pho­to is from the tap­ing of his Jan­u­ary 2 show.
