The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from illegal wire tapping to Robin Givhan.
Stephen starts off the show by mentioning he's pretty sad and depressed, so to cheer him up, he asks the director to show some videos to make him happier. Thanks to a clip from Japan, Stephen gets fired up again and gets into tonight's edition of "The Word," which is "Chernobyl." Stephen insists Chernobyl has really turned around with new wildlife, so there's always a good side to a terrible incident.
Back from commercial, Stephen debates wire tapping with himself in another "Formidable Opponent" segment.
Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, Robin Givhan. They discussed fashion and what messages politicians try to say by wearing certain clothing.
Back from commercial, Stephen ends the show by checking the Inbox. Two of the emails were from himself, as reminders.
The opening was great; I wasn't expecting such a quick transition into "The Word." The big disappointment wasn't the interview, but rather the "Formidable Opponent" segment. These are getting worse and worse. I'd much rather see Steve Carell come by every now and again and see he and Stephen revive "Even Stephens," a segment from The Daily Show.
