  • Stephen interviews Mark Cuban and Major Owens.

    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from the war on Christmas to what to expect next year.

    Stephen starts off by complaining about how when he went to Wal-Mart, he wasn't told "Merry Christmas". Instead, he was told "Happy Holidays", so when he returned home, he decided to look up the word "holiday", and he learned it means "Holy Day", which Stephen thinks is appropriate afterall, so he announces a "War on Holiday". He promises to fight anyone who wishes him a "Merry Christmas", as he now favors "Happy Holidays".

    Stephen decides to take a look at previous episodes, and see how he was able to change the world. They show three clips they didn't actually use for those episodes.

    Stephen turns his attention to next year, and hopes we can come up with new things, and this brings us to tonight's edition of "The Word", which is "Jetpack". We've been promised a lot of things over the years, so where's the jetpack? Stephen goes on to list a few other things he'd like to see happen, which includes an increase in his poll numbers.

    Back from a break, Stephen introduces another Better Know A District segment, which focuses on the eleventh district of New York, which is the home of Brooklyn. Stephen then shows Congressman Major Owens, eleven-time Democratic Congressman. They discuss poetry, Hurricane Katrina, Haiti, a minimum wage increase, and slavery.

    Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, Mark Cuban. They discussed a variety of topics, which included how Mark Cuban made his money, and the possibility of buying another sports team.

    Back from commercial, Stephen reminds folks of the tax season, and brings several things onto the set so he can declare them as business expenses.

    As usual, it was another solid show. I thought the two interviews got a bit silly in a fairly short time.
