AIRED:
Tonight, comedian and star of the FX show The Riches and Ocean's 13, Eddie Izzard.

Jon begins the show by reporting on London's new Olympic logo for the 2012 Olympics. Apparently, the animated logo was removed from the internet for fear that it would cause seizures.

Jon then reports on the G-8 Summit in Germany, which sparked a number of protests in a segment called "8 Simple Rulers". Also, Jon reports on Bush's clash with his buddy Vladimir Putin about what to do about the proposed missile shield over Eastern Europe.

Finally, a rerun of Samantha Bee's report on gays "corrupting" Nascar by using Fructis hair care products as a sponsor in a segment called "Gays of Thunder".moreless

      • Jon calls Vladimir Putin, "the Pope of Polonium." This is a reference to Alexander Litvinenko, the former KGB agent and anti-Putin journalist who died in November 2006 after being poisoned with radioactive polonium. A former KGB agent has been indicted for the murder. The Kremlin denies any responsibility.

      • Jon says that a news feature about Paris Hilton could be called "The Shaw-skank Redemption." This is a play on The Shawshank Redemption, a 1994 prison movie starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. The movie was based on a Stephen King novella.
