Unfunny business

The following was made possible by the writers' strike.

* The Golden Globes Awards ceremony has been cancelled, the Associated Press reported today. It will be replaced by a news conference, which promises to be as unfunny as a White House Press briefing (although those can be amusing).

* "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" return tonight to Comedy Central, without their writers. Stewart and Colbert cannot write their own jokes, either. Here's a guess tonight's show is going to be unfunny and a ratings hit because people want to see what will happen.

Regardless of where one stands on this issue (and most are with the writers), this whole situation is becoming increasingly annoying. And it won't be long before the public starts blaming both sides. If they don't settle, Hollywood is going to be filled with even more reality shows.

"The Horror. The Horror," someone would write if they could.
