Hollywood Labor Update

NEW YORK (AP) -- David Letterman and Jay Leno are coming out of their two months of reruns. The late-night talk show hosts plan to hit the airwaves with fresh shows tonight.

CBS' "Late Show" is coming back with a full-force writing staff and comedian Robin Williams. Letterman's production company worked out a deal to return with writers, despite the Hollywood strike which started November 5th.

NBC's "Tonight" show will stripped of its writers. And just hours before voters turn out for the Iowa caucuses, the guest will be presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee. The former Arkansas governor says his guest spot is "an incredible opportunity."

NBC's Conan O'Brien and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel are also returning tonight without writers.

Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart and "The Colbert Report" (kohl-BEHR' reh-POHR') will be back on Monday without striking writers.
