Shepard Smith battles digital addiction, and Jack Andraka shares his passion for science.

>> Stephen: TONIGHT, A NEWTHREAT TO YOUR MARRIAGE!

THE OLD THREAT WAS REPLACED BY AYOUNGER ONE.

(LAUGHTER)THEN, HOW IS TECHNOLOGY CHANGING

T.V. NEWS?

TWEET ME YOUR THOUGHTS WITHHASHTAG "POINTLESS TWEETING."

(LAUGHTER)AND MY GUEST, JACK ANDRAKA, IS A

16-YEAR-OLD WHO INVENTED ANEARLY TEST FOR PANCREATIC

CANCER-- BUT YOU ENJOY THATBUMPER STICKER FOR MAKING HONOR

ROLL.

(LAUGHTER)THERE'S A GLOBAL WINE SHORTAGE.

GREAT, NOW PEOPLE IN BOOK CLUBSWILL ACTUALLY HAVE TO READ.

THIS IS "THE COLBERT

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)(AUDIENCE CHANTING "STEPHEN").

>> Stephen: WELCOME TO THEREPORT, EVERYBODY, GOOD TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THANK YOU SO MUCH.

PLEASE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

SIT DOWN, FOLKS.

YOU KNOW, I LIKE GIVING YOU GOODNEWS BUT I'M AFRAID IT'S SAD TO

SAY THIS CONGRESS RIGHT NOW ISTHE LEAST POPULAR OF ALL TIME.

JUST THINKING ABOUT WHAT'S GOINGON ON CAPITOL HILL MAKES PEOPLE

NAUSEOUS.

NAUSEA, BY THE WAY, MORE POPULARTHAN CONGRESS.

(LAUGHTER)AND REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS ARE

THE MOST-LEAST POPULAR.

(LAUGHTER)ONE REASON IS THAT THEY

DISAPPOINTED THEIR BASE BYVOTING TO RAISE THE DEBT CEILING

ON THE FLIMSY EXCUSE OF AVOIDINGA GALACTIC ECONOMIC MELTDOWN.

WELL, YESTERDAY SENATEREPUBLICANS DID THEIR BEST TO

FIX THAT MISTAKE WHEN 27 G.O.P.

SENATORS VOTED TO DISAPPROVE OFTHEIR PREVIOUS VOTES TO RAISE

THE DEBT CEILING.

(LAUGHTER)I BELIEVE THE MOTION WAS TITLED

"S.R.-346, FISCAL I CALLBACKSIES."

(LAUGHTER)AND, FOLKS, IT WAS NOT EASY FOR

THEM TO GET THIS VOTE.

MITCH McCONNELL HAD TONEGOTIATE WITH HARRY REID SO

THAT THE RECENT DEBT CEILINGBILL INCLUDED A PROVISION THAT

THERE WOULD BE A SECOND VOTEEXPRESSING APPROVAL OR

DISAPPROVAL OF THE FIRST VOTE.

(LAUGHTER)IN SHORT, G.O.P. SENATORS VOTED

FOR RAISING THE DEBT CEILING ONTHE STIPULATION THEY COULD VOTE

AGAINST HAVING VOTED FOR IT.

PROVING THAT REPUBLICANS MAY NOTBE BIPARTISAN BUT THEY MAY BE

BIPOLAR.

(LAUGHTER).

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)AND THESE BRAVE 27 STATESMEN LED

BY MITCH McCONNELL TOOK THISSTAND FOR THE NOBLEST OF

REASONS-- TO GET REELECTED.

I FOR ONE CANNOT WAIT FOR THECAMPAIGN ADS-- SO I DIDN'T.

JIM?

>> MITCH McCONNELL CLAIMS TOBE A SMALL-GOVERNMENT

CONSERVATIVE BUT HE VOTED WITHTHE DEMOCRATS TO RAISE THE DEBT

CEILING.

BUT MITCH McCONNELL KNOWS THATWAS WRONG.

HE TOOK A STAND AGAINST MITCHMcCONNELL.

(LAUGHTER)MITCH McCONNELL, WRONG FOR

KENTUCKY.

VOTE CHANGE.

VOTE MITCH McCONNELL.

(LAUGHTER)I'M MITCH McCONNELL AND I

APPROVE THIS MESSAGE.

NO I DON'T!

(LAUGHTER)(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: FOLKS, WITH AN AD

(LAUGHTER)NATION, YOU WATCH THE SHOW, YOU

KNOW MY MIDDLE NAME IS "DANGER."

BUT MY FIRST NAME IS "WE'RE ALLIN" AND MY LAST NAME IS "RUN FOR

YOUR LIVES."

THIS IS THE THREATDOWN.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)FOLKS, TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE IS

UNDER ATTACK AND THIS TIME IT'SNOT JUST FROM THE GAYS--

ALTHOUGH I'VE GOT TO SAY,THEY'RE NOT HELPING.

LOOK AT NEIL PATRICK HARRIS'FAMILY HALLOWEEN PHOTO.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)"COME TO MY HOUSE, I HAVE

FUN-SIZED SNICKERS."

(LAUGHTER)NO, THE REAL THREAT TO MARRIAGE

IS THREAT NUMBER THREE: DIVORCE.

DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING, DID YOU?

NOW, DIVORCE HAS NEVER BEENGREAT FOR A MARRIAGE, BUT

ACCORDING TO A NEW STUDY,DIVORCE IS CONTAGIOUS.

WHICH I'VE SUSPECTED FOR A LONGTIME.

THAT'S WHY I ALWAYS DID "LARRYKING LIVE" IN A HAZMAT SUIT

WHILE HOLDING A CANARY.

(LAUGHTER)I WAS OKAY.

(APPLAUSE)I WAS OKAY BUT LARRY DID HIT ON

THE CANARY.

(LAUGHTER)NO MEANS NO, LARRY.

NOW, ACCORDING TO A THREE-DECADESTUDY BY BROWN UNIVERSITY

RESEARCHERS-- ALTHOUGH REALLYIT'S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS WHAT

COLOR THEY WERE-- COUPLES WERE75% MORE LIKELY TO BECOME

DIVORCED IF A FRIEND IS DIVORCEDAND 33% MORE LIKELY TO DIVORCE

IF A FRIEND OF A FRIEND ENDS HISOR HER MARRIAGE.

AND I'M NOT SURPRISED.

I HAVE NEVER TRUSTED FRIENDS OFA FRIEND.

I MEAN, I'M MY FRIEND'S FRIEND.

WHO ARE THESE OTHER PEOPLE?

(LAUGHTER)RESEARCHERS SAY DIVORCE CAN

SPREAD LIKE AN EPIDEMIC THROUGHA SOCIAL NETWORK LIKE A RUMOR

AFFECTING FRIENDS UP TO TWODEGREES REMOVED!

THAT'S RIGHT!

DIVORCE CAN SPREAD LIKE CRABS ATTHEATER CAMP!

WHICH IS WHY I HAVE ALWAYS SAIDDIVORCE SHOULD BE ILLEGAL.

ONCE A COUPLE STARTS HANGING OUTWITH NANCY WHO'S GOT A NEW LEASE

OF LIFE, LOOKS AMAZING AND ISSPENDING THANKSGIVING IN TURKS

AND CAICOS HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLYBE SATISFIED WITH YOUR SPOUSE

WHO IS SPENDING THANKSGIVINGWITH YOU?

(LAUGHTER)SO, FOLKS, PROTECT YOURSELF.

STAY OUT OF PLACES WHERE THOSEINFECTED WITH DIVORCE OFF

CONGREGATE: THE FROZEN FOODAISLE, DOG RUNS, MIATA

DEALERSHIPS, OR TRAVELINGTHROUGH THAILAND BECAUSE (BLEEP)

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)NEXT UP, FOLKS, THE DEBATE ON

COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION ISBACK IN CONGRESS BUT NO MATTER

WHAT HAPPENS IT MAY BE TOO LATETO STOP THE SALSA TSUNAMI.

BUT NOW THE SO-CALLED AMERICANBROADCASTING COMPANY HAS

CHALLENGED MY PREJUDICES WITHSENSITIVE PORTRAYALS OF THE RICH

CENTURIES OLD HISPANIC CULTURE.
