Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert aren’t sure what to say. The talk show hosts announced today that production on their shows, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, would resume on Jan. 7 — without their writing staffs. “We would like to return to work with our writers,” the duo said in a statement. “If we cannot, we would like to express our ambivalence, but without our writers we are unable to express something as nuanced as ambivalence.” Meanwhile, the WGA has eased its stance from being “disappointed” in those who cross the picket line (as did Carson Daly, a non-WGA member) to stressing that without their writers, Stewart and Colbert “will not give viewers the shows they’ve come to expect.”
