Daily Show And Colbert Report Back On-Air In January
No more re-runs...but new shows minus the writing staffs...? What do you think: do Colbert and Stewart have the chops to pull it off?
First reported by NoFactZone: "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" will be back on the air January 7th. Here's the confirm from Comedy Central, hot off the presses:
"'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' and 'The Colbert Report' will resume production on January 7 with both shows returning to air that night without their respective writing staffs. The January 7 return follows a scheduled two-week, end-of-year hiatus that was previously built into the shows' production calendars. We continue to hold out hope for a swift resolution to the current stalemate that will enable the shows to be complete again."

"We would like to return to work with our writers. If we cannot, we would like to express our ambivalence, but without our writers we are unable to express something as nuanced as ambivalence."
