  • Stephen's back in the studio after shooting a fellow-hunter.

    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from the winter Olympics to tonight's guest, Lama Surya Das.

    Stephen starts off the show by mentioning how he was on vacation, and that he shot a man in the head while hunting. We then see Stephen being cut into an interview with Brit Hume, which was originally from the interview with Dick Cheney.

    Stephen transitions into the Olympics, which have been a huge disappointment for Stephen. This brings us to tonight's edition of "The Word," which is "U.S.A.? U.S.A.?" Stephen is upset that The U.S. is tied with Russia for third place in gold medals.

    Back from commercial, Stephen introduces another "Better Know A District" segment. The 13th district of New Jersey was chosen for this week, but the congress seat is open, so there was no interview.

    Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest Lama Surya Das. They talk about Buddhism and the similarities to other religions.

    Back from commercial, Stephen ends the show by putting some of his DNA on one of his shelves, in honor of the founders who discovered it.

    I loved the way Stephen opened the show by making fun of Vice President Dick Cheney, someone he doesn't normally target. The "Better Know A District" segment was a little disappointing since there wasn't an interview.
