They're Back!

The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are back. It's like some cool, soothing drug has been introduced to my bloodstream. Even though they don't have the capabilities to do the really damning commentaries of the past, they still are very funny.

I guess it's something to do with the nature of group forces and cooperative behaviours, but I'm not sure why writers aren't going into any show that is willing to provide the benefits that the union is asking for. If the writers are being hired on the terms that the writer's guild wants, then they're not scabs, are they?

Also, only high-profile shows that truly need writers would return to the airwaves. This way, the writer's strike could continue for shows like Two and a Half Men while not changing anything I watch. Isn't this the best of both worlds?
