  • The show lacked something.

    The news seemed to run a little long. Jon had complaints about the high temperatures in New York, and talked about how global warming apparently isn't something that happens over time, but rather it's immediate.

    The segment with Stephen Colbert, who was dressed as a Navy Sailor, was kind of cute. The writing was on-par with the usual stuff.

    Jon's interview with sports commentator, Bob Costas went well I thought. Bob is a favorite of mine, and as usual, conducted himself in a very good way. Like any good commentator, Bob was able to discuss various topics such as Barry Bonds and steroids, and bring a fair amount of humor to the whole thing.

    After the interview was a "Great Moments in Punditry" segment. Every now and again, they are able to get a good one, but this was below-average. They may want to just strip this segment from the series. It seems to be very much a hit-or-miss segment.moreless
