    I would love to get my custom play list going and get my drink-soup-out-of-a-foil-pouch on! This reminds of the super cool mayonaisse (the “mayo-lution”) initiative that Miracle Whip tried to get Stephen involved in. Marketers will do anything to make a completely boring food exciting…somehow.

    And Susan Lucci- that was awesome. She looks fabulous, and she did a good job with the script and all of those camera shifts, what a good sport. Stephen was giddy throughout the whole episode, and looked pretty much ready to crack up while she was on. He would be great on a soap, if the “stories” will still on the air and the entire genre not made entirely archaic at this point.

    The new portrait is fantastic. Without Stephen & staff there is no Colbert Nation, so right back at you Stephen! Happy Thanksgiving to all the TCR staff. I think we all need to get some rest, so this is kind of a welcome break ;)

    I thought the “General Hospital” segment was brilliant, just brilliant. Brava, Susan Lucci! She really got it.

    I loved the interview, as well. Chris Stringer was so at ease, and Stephen so fascinated, that the “character” pretty much disappeared in favor of the real man. The science-based guests are almost always great. An excellent show to leave us feeling thankful before the holiday–even if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving!

    The new portrait is officially too-many-Stephens-to-see-all-of-them large. Unless maybe the artist was one of those types that can make it small enough that you could see the very first portrait if you had a magnifying glass or something.

    And SUSAN LUCCI!! Awesome!!

    The part with Susan Lucci was hilarious.
    Love the new portrait (how come his hair looks brown?).
