  • Jay Leno

    The late night shows had their second night return to the airwaves and the networks are glad they are back after the two month hiatus. Their first night brought whopper increases in ratings--Nielsen reporting that Jay Leno, who returned without his writing staff, had his best ratings in years, 47 percent higher than his pre-strike average.

  • The Weather Channel

  • David Letterman

    Happy 2008! I'm back from my travels and have spent the day reading up on all the news I missed while away (though news of Benazir Bhutto's assassination was everywhere, the international press doesn't follow Hollywood labor negotiations as closely).
