  • Demetri Martin checks in with the hottest gifts of the season, while Jon talks to Tom Brokaw about his latest documentary.

    Jon starts off the show by talking about the Iraqi elections.



    Jon gets right into President Bush, who is asking people in the audience to ask him some questions. This shocks Jon, especially when they don't seem to be pre-screened questions. Jon then takes a look at Howard Dean, Barbara Boxer, and John Kerry trying to rally the Democrats, but their messages are being used against them by the Republican Party.



    Back from commercial, Jon introduces another "Trendspotting" segment with Demetri Martin. Demetri takes a look at the hottest holiday gift, the XBox 360. To learn more about it, Demetri turns to Matt Britton, who's a youth marketing expert. Demetri then turns to a New York Best Buy store. He talks to Charles "Chuck" O'Donnell, the District Manager. Demetri goes on to play Call of Duty 2 with customers and employees.



    Back from commercial, Jon introduces tonight's guest, Tom Brokaw, who has a new special (Tom Brokaw Reports: To War and Back) for NBC, which looks at the war in Iraq from the perspective of the young soldiers actually fighting it.



    Jon's comments about Howard Dean, Barbara Boxer, and John Kerry are no doubt about to upset the far left-wingers. Demetri's Trendspotting segment was funny at times, however I don't feel this is the "A" material I should expect. I liked the brief interview with Tom Brokaw - his new show sounds very interesting.moreless
