I was (and remain) pissed off that the late night hosts went back to work before the WGA strike ended. These guys are Guild members who were clearly not ad-libbing. If Jay, Conan, Jon and Stephen composed their thoughts seconds before tape rolled, I maintain they wrote something…
I also didn’t appreciate what was a dirty little secret on the picket lines… late night writers choosing not to picket their own shows. Never mind the overwhelming majority of Los Angeles-based screenwriters who dutifully picketed outside their respective studio gate.
But anyway… that’s done, I suppose.
In a return to relative normalcy, Stephen Colbert welcomed his crew back. Holy shit, this was funny.
