    Tuned into The Colbert Report because I figured that an interview between the most controversial coach in sports and television's funniest person would produce hilarity, but it turned out to be limited. Colbert was funny, but Ryan seemed to be trying too hard to be relaxed and not say something controversial and it hurt the interview.

    The rest of the episode was good as Colbert had his usual funny take on the Osama bin Laden issue. I still do not know exactly how to feel about all of this days after it happened, but as long as you can laugh about it and not take it too seriously, all should be okay.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • "Word Hurdler" returns to the opening credits as the featured phrase, succeeding the one-shots "Win Laden" and "I'm In England".

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Stephen: Tonight: New details in the hunt for Bin Laden. It was like finding a needle in a country that swore it did not have needles. Then: What can we do about soaring gas prices? Would it help to shoot Bin Laden's other eye? Then my guest tonight is New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan. I'll talk to him for six minutes, seven if he makes the kick. Scott Pelley has been named the new CBS Evening News anchor, personally, I don't think he has the gams for it. This is the Colbert Report.
