You may not have heard, and you may not think you care about the Writers Guild of America strike, but when you find yourself curiously not laughing tonight as a repeat of The Daily Show airs, you'll start caring pretty quick.

It's the first such work stoppage in 20 years, something about residual pay for internet usage, among other issues. All I know is I want it my Colbert, I want my Jon Stewart, and I want them now. How else can I justify my sky-high Comcast and TiVo bills? With reality TV? Hell no.
