  • The last show before a break.

    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from the winter Olympics to the Grammy Awards.

    Stephen starts off the show by mentioning he's got awards fever, and he loved the Grammy Awards, which was on last night. He then mentions Michael Crichton being awarded something for his book, State of Fear. Stephen then reads a passage from his own book.

    Stephen then decides to hand out an award called "Stephen's Balls" to dumb lobbyist.

    With the winter Olympics coming up, Stephen decides to mention it in tonight's edition of "The Word," which is "U.S.A! U.S.A!" Stephen goes on to give suggestions on the Olympics and then gets into an argument with the bullet points next to him on the screen.

    Back from commercial break, Stephen discusses Valentine's Day, all in a segment called "Stephen's Laws of Love." Stephen's laws come from observing the potentially successful relationships of celebrity couples.

    Back from commercial break, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, George Packer, author of The Assassins' Gate: America In Iraq. They discuss the war in Iraq and Mr. Packer's book about it.

    Back from the commercial break, Stephen shows an old music video of him when he was a part of a music group called Stephen and the Colberts. It's a video for his ex-love, Charlene.

    Tonight's episode was a great one, perfect for vacation time. Every segment was good, although the music video at the end was a bit ridiculous. The best part of the show was "Stephen's Laws of Love." Not only was the writing great, but when Stephen lost his composure, it made for another great moment. He was able to eventually compose himself like the professional that he is.
