  • Last show for the week, not bad, but not as good as the others for the week.

    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from obesity to tonight's guest, Jim Cramer.

    Stephen starts off by thanking the bloggers for their input. Stephen then showed how the FOX News Channel is lightening things up, by singing. In an attempt to cheer up the audience, Stephen welcomes Lisa Loeb for a quick little song.

    Tonight's word is Love Handles. Stephen thanked Congress for the Cheeseburger Bill, and further discussed the issue of obesity.

    Stephen then talks about how he shoots hoops with other news anchors, and how some guy, Russ Lieber is slamming Stephen on the radio.

    Back from commercial, Stephen looks at the foreign press to see what the opinion is of America. Stephen shows newspapers and TV news clips from around the world which had content Stephen thought was either odd or something he didn't agree with.

    Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, Jim Cramer, host of Mad Money. The interview was about the market, the President, and even a little about Stephen.

    To end the show, Stephen talked about credit cards and asked the banks to offer pre-approved credit cards to everyone, not just celebrities like him, Willie Nelson, and M.C. Hammer.

    This is the last episode this week, and for a debut week, I enjoyed it very much. This one, was probably the worst episode of the week, but not by a whole lot. The interview with Jim Cramer was crazy, much like I expected it to be. The foreign press segment wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I think that was a bad idea for a segment.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Stephen: Stop operating heavy machinery, because you're about to take two maximum strength tablets of Truth.

    • Stephen:…which is why tonight's Word is: Love Handles. Or what the doom-criers at the CDC insist on calling morbid obesity. (Morbid Obesity) A recent study shows that 61% of American adults are overweight, (America fat) a number which has doubled (with cheese) since the late 70's. (Thanks, War on Drugs!) Well, yesterday (Day before today) the House of Representatives passed a so-called cheeseburger bill, which is not named for Cheeseburger Bill who later became Mayor McCheese. The bill makes it unlawful to sue any food corporation for selling fatty foods. (Tasty treats) I say kudos Congress, delicious, crunchy kudos.

      First of all American needs tort reform, (Chocolate tort) it's bad enough that the tobacco companies had to cough up cash to the lung huggers out there. (The blame cancer crowd) It's time to stop all the frivolous legal actions choking our courts, be they frivolous lawsuits of frivolous restraining orders. I am not stalking you Charlene! I know it's over! (Call me) Folks, come on, what is this national obsession with body image? (I like big butts) Some people, like me, have a metabolism like a bird. (Eagle) Other people are constantly battling their weight. It is nothing to be ashamed of. It is a symbol of our national prosperity. Do you know what third world countries would give for the rolls of fat around our wrists? (Dirt?)

      Besides, 61% of us are overweight, last time I checked that's a majority. (More than half) America has voted with its gut and it is strongly pro-growth. (Stretch denim) Think of the boost to industry when we have to build stronger chairs, wider doors, bigger gulps. (99 cents) What is good for the nacho industrial complex (Freedom fryers) is good for us all. In these tough economic times, I say America, we all need to loosen out belts.

      And that's the Word.

    • Stephen Colbert: I'm looking over your shoulder, but only because I've got your back.
