The writer's strike could be nearing an end.
Striking Hollywood screenwriters said Saturday they had agreed a deal to settle their three-month old dispute and could be back at work next week if it meets with union members' approval.

Leaders of the 12,000-strong Writers Guild of America emailed members early Saturday to inform them an agreement with studio chiefs had been reached which would be discussed at meetings in New York and Los Angeles.

Very good news if you like TV. Even better news if you are Jon Stewart and have to present the Oscars.
