David Letterman, Craig Ferguson to Return with Full Writing Staff

By Chris V. Thangham     Dec 29, 2007 in Entertainment
David Letterman had previously announced he was planning to return early in 2008 and he's come through on his word. He will be back in January with his full writing staff despite the ongoing writers strike.
David Letterman’s company, Worldwide Pants, and The Writers Guild (WGA) have reached an agreement that will allow his company that produces “Late Night with David Letterman” and “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson” to have their full writing staff.
The writer’s strike won’t be an obstacle to their shows beginning next year and the shows will return to air with full writing staff.
The statement from the Guild said: "This is a comprehensive agreement that addresses the issues important to writers, particularly New Media," which refers to the use of their work on the internet.
It was previously reported shows hosted by Letterman, Leno, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and others would be back on air but not with their usual writing staff. But with this agreement, the regular writers are back.
Letterman is excited with this news and in a statement he said he is grateful to the WGA for this agreement: "We're happy to be going back to work, and particularly pleased to be doing it with our writers."I hope they are able to make similar agreements with other shows as well, but there is no reports on this matter yet.
Are you affected by the strike or do you not care? This strike certainly has made it easy for me to watch less TV.
