Huzzah (Redux)!

It's good to not feel stupid for posting that bit a couple days ago. Now, officially, the writers' strike is over.

What does this mean for your favorite shows? Well, screw your favorite shows, let's talk about mine. Comedies like "How I Met Your Mother," "The Office," and "30 Rock" are working on anywhere from four to nine episodes, "Lost" might be able to pull out a truncated season, "House" can now work on getting Jesse Spencer and Jennifer Morrison on-screen for more than 30 seconds at a time, and...uh...well, that's about it.

"24" will show up again next January (start working on getting that whole "Tony's alive and is now the bad guy" idea to make sense, guys!). "Heroes" will figure out how to pace its series better by the fall. And all the other great freshman shows like "Pushing Daisies" and...okay, "Pushing Daisies" will return in September with a big fat marketing push behind them.

In the meantime, let's enjoy tomorrow night's fully-staffed "Daily Show" and "Colbert Report."

So: Huzzah! Again! Some more!
