Didn't you read the article at the beginning of this thread? It said
in part:

<In 1988, Letterman stayed out until Johnny Carson resumed "The
Tonight
Show" after taking two months off. Twenty years later, most believe
Letterman's return will give Leno, Conan and Jimmy Kimmel cover to
resume their shows. >

So no, he didn't work for a few weeks and only came back after Carson
returned without writers.

Maybe...and it will be a while before he comes back this time as he is
a member of WGA
