      • Stephen: Tonight: The economic crisis drives people back to church. I assume to skim off the collection plates. Then: I look at the Oscar winners which evidently are being outsourced to India. And my guest tonight is Professor Helen Fisher who has a new theory on matchmaking. Me too: Colbert plus you equals magic. When life deals you lemons make scrambled eggs. I make the worst scrambled eggs. This is the Colbert Report.

      • Stephen Colbert: Yes, americans are flocking back to the flock. And not just because communion counts as a meal.
        In bad times, people turn to the Lord for comfort and guidance. According to a Texas State University study (reading from a newspaper clip) "During each recession cycle between 1968 and 2004, the rate of growth in evangelical churches jumped by 50 percent."
        Which makes sense because we all know evangelical churches don't care about money.
