  • Stephen takes on Hamas and bears.

    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from Osama Bin Laden to NASCAR switching fuel.

    Stephen starts off the show by mentioning Oprah, who chose a book, which has caused some controversy, as some of the facts have been questioned.

    Stephen transitions into a discussion on Osama Bin Laden's offer of a truce. Stephen thinks that he's ready to quit, thus declaring the U.S. the winner. This brings us to tonight's edition of "The Word," which is "Charlie Daniels." Stephen suggests we're at a crossroads, with a deal with the devil. Stephen doesn't seem to have a problem with making a deal with Bin Laden.

    Back from commercial, Stephen introduces this week's edition of "Threat Down." Number five is "Unleaded Gas," as it seems NASCAR is switching to unleaded fuels for safety concerns for its drivers, engineers, and fans. Number four is "The Vatican," who are telling us intelligent design is not based on science. Number three is "Kobe Bryant," who scored 81 points, the second most all-time. He's said to be the best player ever by some folks, but Stephen insists Michael Jordan is number one. Coming in at number two is "Children's Advocacy Groups," as these "child huggers" are suing companies for their marketing tactics to get kids hooked on their sugar products. The number one threat is "Hamas," a terrorist group, using bears in their tv shows.

    Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, David Gregory. They talked about David Gregory's job of covering the president and the how small the press room at the White House is.

    Back from commercial, Stephen ends the show by discussing Medicare plans, all to romantic music.

    The ending and the "threat down" were my favorite segments tonight. I don't know what it is, but even a fairly average episode of this show seems better than an average episode of The Daily Show, but that's just my opinion.
