  • Stephen stops selling his seed online.

    8.5
    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from the Iraq war to the Christian convert in Afghanistan.

    Stephen starts off tonight's show by mentioning some disappointing news. It seems that his new product, his seed, which he launched on his website, has had too much of a demand, so he's decided it to be a seasonal product.

    Moving on, Stephen turns his attention to illegal immigrants who have been protesting changes to the laws on immigration. He then shows clips of two Senators talking on the Sunday morning talk shows, and it seems a million illegal immigrants snuck across the border within 30 minutes. Stephen suggests that if this rate continues, the entire population of Mexico will be here within four days.

    Moving on, Stephen takes a look at the first lady's fitness routine. Stephen opposes the revealing of the first lady's fitness routine, which is to have brisk walks.

    Moving on again, Stephen introduces another edition of "The Word," which is "Tense." This has to do with the war in Iraq and Time magazine's question about whether the war WAS worth it.

    Back from commercial, Stephen asks the viewers of the show to write a letter to the judge who's overseeing Jack Abramoff, and ask him to cut Jack a little slack..

    Moving on, Stephen introduces this week's edition of "The Threatdown". Number five is drug dealers because twelve people have been arrested for selling marijuana-laced foods and soda. Number four is packaging because of "wrap rage." It turns out thousands of people are injured while trying to open up packages because they're difficult to open. The third top threat is Jane Goodall, who is opposed to taking grizzly bears off of the endangered species list. Stephen suggests Jane should stick to the group of animals she knows best, apes. The second top threat is dolphin sex. This is an odd one, but it seems a female dolphin was seem crying while a dolphin was having sex with her. The number one threat this week is Jesus. In Stephen's eyes, Jesus is jeopardizing President Bush successful war in Afghanistan because of the man in Afghanistan who converted to Christianity.

    Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, Gary Hart. Their interview touched on many subjects such as the war on terrorism, environment, energy needs, etc.

    I was quite pleased to see "The Word" and "The Threatdown" return after a bit of a hiatus. My favorite part of tonight's episode was a very brief moment when Stephen was talking about selling his seed on the website. You could tell Stephen was having a good time with it.
