article imageLast Call: Carson Daly to Resume Taping Despite Writers Strike

By S.H. Mills     Nov 27, 2007 in Entertainment
The writers strike may wreak havoc on some viewers' favorite television shows this season, but there are some TV hosts that plan to work through the strike. Carson Daly is one of them.
While many shows will be going to reruns until the writer’s strike is settled, late night talk show host Carson Daly intends to begin taping new shows this week. He’s not the only talk show host to have this idea, but he is the first late night host to continue production.
Carson Daly does not belong to the Writers Guild and he has every intention of continuing to tape “Last Call with Carson Daly,” while union members attempt to work things out. Daly will be working while other late night shows play reruns.
Ellen Degeneres has also gone back to work on her daytime show and she is in fact a union member.
Apparently, talks are once again in the works concerning the writers strike, per KXMB, a CBS affiliate. While things are being hashed out, NBC says Daly will be taping this week and airing new shows next week.
A spokesman for the Writers Guild offered no comment on this development, per the Associated Press.
That should make his viewers happy. Maybe other viewers will get lucky and more shows will follow Daly's lead or the strike will end soon. There is currently no word on when either of these events might occur.
