Return of Stewart and Colbert

"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."

The Daily Show and The Colbert Report will return to the air on January 7 -- someone must have rescued Stewart and Colbert from XKCD.

Although I selfishly celebrate their return, it seems like it was a hard decision for the two. Stewart and Colbert support the WGA strike, their writers and comedians have posted amusing videos in support, and the WGA's reaction to the announcement states that the hosts were forced to return to the air by Comedy Central. I foresee Colbert doing better with the improvisational requirements of their return, but I can't see either show doing that well -- I always fast forward through Stewart's interview, which will likely now dominate the show.

As angry as the WGA is, perhaps poor quality comedy shows will highlight the importance of good writing. I'm not saying that Colbert and Stewart should throw the game, but perhaps they can do more in their return than not.
