‘Daily Show,’ ‘Colbert Report’ return Jan. 7

Jonstewart_2This just in from Comedy Central: “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “The Colbert Report” will Stephencolbert follow their broadcast latenight brethren and return to the air with fresh segs on Jan. 7 (a week after Leno, Letterman, O’Brien, Ferguson and Kimmel). The Comedy Central press release that just arrived in our inbox was short and to the point, with a joint statement from Stewart (pictured left) and Colbert (pictured right).

(I can’t wait for Colbert’s opening tirade. Gawd, I’ve missed him.)

“‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ and ‘The Colbert Report’ will resume production on January 7 with both shows returning to air that night without their respective writing staffs.  The January 7 return follows a scheduled two-week, end-of-year hiatus that was previously built into the shows’ production calendars.  We continue to hold out hope for a swift resolution to the current stalemate that will enable the shows to be complete again.”

“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.”
