  • Jon pays tribute to Alan Greenspan.

    8.9
    Jon starts off the show by introducing the main theme of tonight's show, a tribute to Alan Greenspan, who is retiring from the Federal Reserve Board. Jon gets up and uses one of the big monitors behind him to give a funny, brief summary of Alan's accomplishments. While Jon makes his way back to the chair, they roll a tribute for Alan from Dan Bakkendahl.



    Now back at his desk, Jon introduces resident expert, John Hodgman, who claims Alan invented macaroni and cheese, among other things. John then brings out a crystal ball to see what the future will bring, but before we can view it, it must connect to the internet. As we begin viewing some of the images, we learn the future is very grim since Americans aren't saving enough for future problems.



    Back from commercial, Jon introduces a piece from Jason Jones, who went out on the streets of New York to get people's reactions to Alan's retirement. Surprisingly, they showed a lot of people who seemed to know who Alan Greenspan is. As they go to commercial, they show another tribute from Rob Corddry.



    Back from commercial, Jon welcomes tonight's guest, Charles Barkley. They talk about basketball, Gilligan's Island, and The Perfect Storm.



    It was great to see John Hodgman back on the show. He's a very funny guy, with a lot of potential on the show. Without a doubt, the interview was the best segment. I'm a huge fan of Charles Barkley, especially during interviews. He's very frank and honest, so perhaps this is what I like about him.moreless
