Good television news! It's about time, right? David Letterman has reached a deal with the union representing the striking writers and will return to his late-night desk on January 2. "I am grateful to the WGA for granting us this agreement. We're happy to be going back to work, and particularly pleased to be doing it with our writers," Dave said in a statement Friday. "This is not a solution to the strike, which unfortunately continues to disrupt the lives of thousands. But I hope it will be seen as a step in the right direction."
Dave, who is totally the man, has been paying his staff out of his own pocket since the strike began, which had to be a huge relief to all of his peeps who were worried about having cash to feed their families -- oh yeah, and buy some holiday gifts. So, to all of Dave's staffers, who will be back earning their dollars next week, don't forget that Boss' Day is October 16.
