Writers Guild set to return to work

CNN has officially announced that a settlement has been reached in the 100-day strike and writers are returning to work. They report that,

More than 92 percent of the Writers Guild of America members who cast ballots Tuesday in Los Angeles and New York voted to end their work stoppage over residuals for writing in the digital age, including new media and the Internet. The new deal is for three years.

Of course it will take time for our beloved favorites to catch-up and resume programming, but The Oscars will go on (airing next Sunday, February 24) and the entertainment industry seems to be turning a corner towards normalcy.

While I will miss the ridiculous time-wasting antics of late night hosts Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Conan O'Brien, I am excited for the return of their writers which will help them more thoroughly satirize current affairs.
