Letterman to return in deal with striking writers

This deal is good news for late night television and bad news for Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

Congratulations to Letterman and the Writers Guild of America for finalizing a deal that both sides agree is fair.

Hopefully, the network executives will do likewise soon and agree on a contract that compensates writers for their work instead of their current practice of selling episodes online and keeping the profits for themselves.
