A side noteI’m late on this blog helmed by “Late Show” writers, but if you have time to kill now that your DVR is empty, it’s well worth the visit. Here’s an excerpt from one prescient entry worth posting from writer Bill Scheft: “Last week, the Writers Guild voted to not grant a waiver to this year's Academy Awards. And executives at ABC are worried that without all that carefully scripted material, the show will be forced to cut back from four hours to three hours, 53 minutes.”
