NBC says WGA Strike will end by Dec. 4th

Well, sort of...My brother is coming out to L.A. the beginning of December and he really wants to attend a taping of The Tonight Show. So last month I mailed a request to NBC for two tickets--and then the writers strike happened. Jay's not taping any shows until things are resolved, so I thought it would be iffy that we'd get to see the show--at least for the foreseeable future. But my tickets showed up today, albeit with a caveat enclosed due to the strike and I quote:

"Dear Viewer,

Unfortunately, due to a current Writers Guild of American strike that is affecting the entire industry [subtext: it's the WGA's fault!] there is a chance that The Tonight Show with Jay Leno may be cancelled for the date on your tickets. [boldface mine...] We are anticipating the strike to be resolved by that time, but we still encourage you to please call our ticket office...before coming to the show in order to confirm that we will be taping in the event that the strike is still occurring."
It would appear that NBC is more optimistic about the potential length of the strike than most insiders. Wouldn't it be cool if it was all settled by December 4th?
