    Why David Letterman kicks ass!!!

    Variety has an article hinting that late night show hosts are mulling returning to the air regardless of the writers strike. While I'm impressed by all of them for standing with the writers, and supporting them, I think Letterman is still the class act in this.

    Below is an excerpt that I think says alot, but please read the whole article HERE.

    While Letterman, Leno and O'Brien all want to be respectful of their writers, they're also deeply concerned about the impact of a prolonged strike on their non-WGA staffs.

    NBC, for example, had told producers on its latenight shows that it would only continue paying staffs through Nov. 16 (Daily Variety, Nov. 7).

    Producers of the Peacock shows lobbied the net to keep the paychecks coming, however, and late Thursday, the network agreed. Staffers on Leno and O'Brien's shows, along with those on "Last Call with Carson Daly," will be paid for at least two more weeks, a network spokeswoman said.

    Letterman, whose Worldwide Pants Prods. is solely responsible for staffer salaries on "Late Show" and "Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson," has told staffers they're not going to be cut off. Company will "continue to pay the non-writing staff of the shows - fully compensating lower-salaried employees, and providing a substantial portion of salaries for those at the higher end -- at least through the end of the year," a Worldwide Pants spokesman said.

    As for whether "Late Show" will return before the strike is settled, the spokesperson was non-committal.
