I heard the executive in charge of Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien on the radio last night. He said that most of the shows -the late night talk shows- were not written by Screen Writer’s Guild writers anyway, so they could essentially go back on the air.
I love that George Bush’s presidency has made it possible for anyone to believe anything just because they think it. I feel sorry for Jay and Conan because this will be painful for them. They need the writers, maybe going back on the air will prove it more quickly, but the time in between will be really icky and probably not funny.
