Huckabee to Cross Picket Line on Tonight Show
Republican presidential candidate "I Dislike Mike" Huckabee, will be the first guest on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show," which returns this evening, along with other late night talkers, despite the disapproval of the writers' union which says will picket the taping of the show this afternoon.
Unlike Leno and Comedy Central, David Letterman-owned shows on CBS have made a special agreement with the WGA and will employ the services of their writing staff.
Hollywood's A-lister Robin Williams will be the first guest on "The Late Show with David Letterman" which is expected to express solidarity with the WGA.
Letterman has been a strong supporter of the writers and the agreement with the WGA had been deemed imminent.
Jay Leno, Jon Stewart and Steve Colbert will return sans their writers for which reason their shows are expected to alter the original formula.
As these men return to the air tonight under the watchful eye of the viewers, the media and the WGA, we may finally see if any one them actually posses any comic qualities.
