Letterman and Ferguson back on Jan. 2, interim agreement or not

We’re hearing this afternoon that “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” are going back on air Jan. 2 whether or not Letterman’s Worldwide Pants production banner gets the interim agreement it has sought with the Writers Guild of America. Insiders say both CBS latenighters are stepping up preparations to be ready to roll on Jan. 2, the same night NBC’s Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel get back behind their desks.

Also hearing that WGA has given a mostly cold shoulder to Worldwide Pants’ efforts to strike an interim deal that would allow the shows to return with their scribes staffs in place.

Reps for Worldwide Pants and CBS declined comment.
