  • Instead of looking at all of the news, watch Stephen, who tells you exactly what you need to know.

    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from a California referendum to Mary Roach.

    Stephen starts off by making mention of recent White House press briefings. Stephen then shows Drew Rosenhaus, Terrell Owens' agent talking about T.O. He then shows things from Drew Rosenhaus' press conference, taking questions from the White House press core.

    Stephen transitions into tonight's edition of "The Word," which is "Willy Loman." Arnold Schwartzeneggar's recent attempts to get several pieces of legislation passed failed, and failed miserably.

    Up next is is "All You Need to Know", which included topics about Kansas, Kim Jong Il, flu clinics, oil companies, and finally, the CIA.

    Back from commercial, Stephen introduces tonight's guest, Mary Roach, author of "Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife." At the end of the interview, Stephen calls upon spirits of the past, and has a little conversation with Jon Stewart.

    Back from commercial, Stephen introduces another "Better Know a District.". This time, it's the seventh district in Florida, where Stephen interviews Congressman John Mica. Stephen asks the Congressman on various topics regarding either his district or his opinion on various topics.

    I have to admit this wasn't my favorite episode so far, although the "All You Need to Know" segment was hilarious, like the previous installments.
