My wife and I already are tired of watching re-runs of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
Pretty soon we'll be reduced to desperate measures, like watching programming with actual educational value, such as the many nature and science shows stored up on our digital video recorder that we've been ignoring in favor of Comedy Central.
There's a few bright spots to the writer's strike, though. This YouTube video, "Not The Daily Show, With Some Writer," is terrific entertainment. Persuasive too.
Stick it to those corporate bastards, writers!
This other YouTube offering, apparently from The Colbert Show writers, isn't as funny. A good effort though.
Makes you realize the obvious: that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert couldn't work their satirical magic without the support of a whole lot of unseen and unsung writers. Hopefully they'll get their due as a result of the strike.
