  • Rebecca Skloot guests.

    7.0
    The Colbert Report's main problem is the really awful, no-name guests they bring on. Four times out of five they are some unknown journalist or author or something that no one really cares about. There is no reason they cannot get celebrity guests every night as this is such a great show.



    But Stephen Colbert is still quite possibly the best talk show host out there as he always has me laughing no matter how weird or obscure the topic is.



    This was still an enjoyable episode, but I know that this program can be significantly funnier than this, way funnier.moreless

    • Stephen: Until next time, eat like every meal is your last. That way it actually might be.

    • Stephen: Tonight: What's in our children's textbooks? If they're anything like our children, it's corn. Then: I examine the way Americans eat. Usually in front of the TV and all over their shirts. And my guest Rebecca Skloot is here to talk about the ethics of science. I'll ask her how many dates you need to go one before you can take someone's kidneys. Genesis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Leviticus missed it by that much. This is the Colbert Report.
