  • Stephen is back... sorta

    Jon starts off the show by talking about Britney Spears being photographed with her baby not being buckled. Jon suggests it's nothing compared to the way he drives... with the baby hanging onto Jon's head, and sometimes even juggles his baby with a few others during the carpool.

    Jon moves on to the funeral of Coretta Scott King, which was certainly not a good day for President Bush. It wasn't just a funeral; it seemed to be more of a roast for the president, as several speakers took shots at him.

    Jon then transitions into the NSA hearings in Washington D.C. Alberto Gonzales was on the hot seat with the NSA spying, and Senator Patrick Leahy took a great shot at him for Alberto Gonzales' unwillingness to answer most of the questions he was asked.

    Returning from a commercial break, Jon introduces an old segment from Stephen Colbert was on the show. This is said to be the first segment of a series called "Klassic Kolbert." The report is on a woman feels that she and every other smoker are being discriminated against.

    Back from commercial, Jon introduces tonight's guest, Harrison Ford. They have a great time talking about Harrison Ford's new film, Firewall, his stunt work, and how he's not that tech-savvy.

    Without a doubt the highlight of tonight's show was the "Klassic Kolbert" segment. Seeing this segment shows just how good Stephen was as a correspondent, and how lackluster the current cast really is. I can't wait to see more of these segments. I wish Comedy Central would release a Best Of DVD for Stephen's segments.moreless
