The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from Christine Todd Whitman to the Superbowl.
Stephen starts off the show by mentioning today is Groundhog's Day, and then moves into brief coverage of the Supreme Court.
Stephen then moves on to the subject of Super Bowl, and offers some of his recipes for chili. The Super Bowl takes into tonight's edition of "The Word," which is "Aggravated Assault." Stephen compares Seattle to Pittsburg and says Oregon, the state south of Washington is actually another Canada.
Back from commercial, Stephen introduces another installment of "Better Know A District," which takes a look at the 8th district of New York. We now cut to Stephen's interview with Jerrold Nadler. They have a very peculiar conversation on a number of subjects, including the patriot act.
Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, Christine Todd Whitman. They have a fairly engaging conversation on the Republican party.
Tonight's episode was fairly average; the highlight was "The Word" segment, of course.
