Reuters is reporting that David Letterman‘s “Late Show” and Craig Ferguson‘s “Late, Late Show” will be coming back on Jan. 2…with actual TV writers. Whoah! This agreement is the first one struck by the WGA with a studio since the strike began. Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien of NBC and Jimmy Kimmel of ABC are returning to television in early January without their writers.
According to the article, “Talks between [Letterman’s production company Worldwide Pants] and the WGA weren’t looking fruitful. But that changed within the last 48 hours, sources said.”
