NEW YORK (AP) -- Late-night talk shows are back on the air following a two-month break during the writers strike.
David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Kimmel returned with new episodes last night.
Letterman's writing staff is back on the job under a separate agreement with his production company, but other shows are without their writers as the walkout continues.
Movie and TV show writers walked off the job in November in a dispute over fees from programs distributed via the Internet and other digital media.
A couple of the returning talk shows were highlighted by appearances from presidential candidates. Hillary Clinton taped a cameo joke for Letterman's return, quipping that "all good things come to an end." Mike Huckabee showed up on Leno's program, despite picket lines denouncing him as a scab. The republican candidate said he thought the strike had been settled with the talk shows.
