The political website moveon.org has started a petition to bring back "The Daily Show":
Why are The Daily Show, Colbert Report, and other TV shows in re-runs? TV studios are refusing to pay writers fairly--causing them to strike.
The studios will make over $120 million in ad revenue this year showing TV programs on the web. But they want to give writers a one-time payment of $250—that's right, $250—for unlimited use of their content online. This unbelievable greed is keeping Jon Stewart and his team off the air.
Can you sign this petition to the studio executives--and then ask all your friends who love "The Daily Show" to sign it too?
A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to the major studio executives.
