Nightly talk shows including "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", are set to go dark starting tonight after writers agreed to strike.

"Late Night with Seth Meyers" and "The Daily Show" also will be affected, while weekly shows like "Saturday Night Live", "Real Time with Bill Maher" and "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" will be similarly impacted, though final decisions on those shows are expected to come later in the week.

Pete Davidson was set for his "SNL" return on May 6. There are a number of possibilities for the show if there is a strike and that a decision is set to be made closer to showtime.

One of the issues in this year’s negotiation between the writers guild and the studios is surrounding late-night shows on streaming. As it stands, writers who work on “comedy variety programs made for new media,” do not qualify for MBA minimums, something the WGA has been fighting for.
