Each Monday through Thursday since they returned to the airwaves, I feel guilty tuning in to "A Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and Stephen Colbert.
Worse, the shows are just not as good without the crisp writing -- though Colbert is holding up better than Stewart in my view. Before the strike, I found Stewart's show to be superior. Colbert's bit with Lou Dobbs on Thursday was fantastic, but I am getting very tired of the string of Republican guests on Stewart. Sigh.
The strike was definitely having an economic impact since ratings were down dramatically.
Cartoonist Ted Rall had a great cartoon about Stewart and union busting on January 17. Check it out.
Readers, are you showing more solidarity for the writers? Who is watching and who is skipping?
