I need my Stephen

I’ve watched Stephen’s late night shows since Day One. The podcast doesn’t take the place of watching but if I missed something (and didn’t DVR it) I like being able to fill in the blanks. If the podcast includes Stephen answering audience questions, that is a nice bonus.

Unfunny

Proof that lack of talent isn’t a barrier to television today

Loser

Typical liberal who makes insulting attacks with people they don’t agree with. The “hamburgler” is far more intelligent and insightful as to what is good for our government and our country. Get a life you loser.
