FROM THIS EPISODE

Back on the air at the first of next year, NBC-TV’s late-night talkers may be at a disadvantage.  CBS doesn’t own David Letterman’s program; he does. Letterman and Craig Ferguson are working out their own deal with the Writers Guild and meanwhile the strike continues. Also tonight: will a $15 billion dollar state deficit put the kibosh on a health reform plan?

Producers:
Karen Radziner
Christian Bordal
