The Return of Stewart & Colbert

The Daily Show, without writers, will return on Monday, January 7th, according to its website. The show will have a different format than we're used to, consisting mostly of interviews.

I expect Jon to explain on his first night back that while he supports the writers 100%, he also supports the rest of his staff -- the camera operators, etc -- who need their paychecks. So, he'll limp along without the writers as we all hope that the evil studios will crumble sometime soon.

Stewart and Colbert released a joint statement:
We would like to return to work with our writers. If we cannot, we would like to express our ambivalence, but without our writers we are unable to express something as nuanced as ambivalence.
