Writers strike update – The Daily Show and The Colbert Report returning soon?

According to an article on media news website Digital Spy The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report could be returning to Comedy Central sooner than thought. Because of the US writers strike these shows have been off-air (reruns have been screened) for the whole of this week, when they would have usually aired new shows Monday-Thursday. Digital Spy says “according to the New York Times, the shows would be tweaked in the event of a prolonged work stoppage and focus more on interviews and ad-libbed asides than scripted jokes”.

All shows (including the Late Show, The Tonight Show, the Late Late Show and Late Night) are “on hiatus” until further notice – meaning reruns will continue to air.
