  • Saddam is on trial now, what's Stephen's take on the whole thing?

    9.2
    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from Saddam to Katie Holmes being pregnant.

    Stephen starts off by talking about the caramel apple he ate this morning to help wake up. He turns to stage manager, Bobby, who says he loves candied apples.

    Tonight's word is Disappointed. Stephen is looking forward to Saddam's trial, but was disappointed when the trial was put on hiatus. Stephen said people don't want to see the pilot and wait six weeks to see the second episode. Stephen then goes in to giving the producers of the show (the trial) some suggestions to re-tool it.

    Stephen then goes into a story about how the melting ice caps will allow for more Asian mail order wives to be sent over to the United States. Stephen then decides to end the debate regarding the fight between the whales, cod, seals, polar beats, and Eskimos. Stephen decides to give the win to the whales and cod.

    Returning from a commercial, Stephen confronts Bobby on something he said earlier. Bobby stated he loved candied apples, but Stephen says candied apples are different from caramel apples. Candied apples are terrible for kids. Stephen asks Bobby why he hates kids.

    Stephen goes to a new segment called a Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger, which has him tipping his hat to some people, while wagging his finger at others. He couldn't help but tip his hat to Tom Cruise for getting Katie Holmes pregnant.

    Returning from a commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, Fareed Zakaria. Any regular Daily Show viewer recognizes him. The interview included discussions on Iraq, why the earth spins, and Stephen's fascination with balls.

    To end the show, Stephen reads some email from fans of the show. Much like the O'Reilly Factor, some simply praised him, and one criticized him.

    Another great show! The funniest segment was the Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger segment. I hope that this becomes a regular segment, like "The Word" is, which was hilarious as usual. The interview with Fareed Zakaria went as I figured it would, but ended on a hilarious note, which even made Stephen laugh.
