It looks like several latenight talkshow hosts are gearing up to return for the first time since the writers' strike began in November. According to Vareity, nothing official has been set, but producers are eyeing a January 7th return date for most of the latenight shows.

The big speculation is that all four big hosts will return around the same time. These include David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, and Craig Ferguson. While it may happen, nothing is set in stone just yet.

It looks like NBC's Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien will most likely return first, no matter what David Leterman decides to do. The drop in ratings seems to be helping out Jimmy Kimmel, as audience members tired of repeats are tuning into his show for fresh entertainment.
