Protests erupt over the shooting of an unarmed black teenager, Scrabble adds thousands of trendy words to its dictionary, and Michael Sheen talks about "Masters of Sex." 

>> Stephen: TONIGHT, DOESRACISM STILL EXIST IN

AMERICA OR IS THAT JUST ANUGLY RUMOR SPREAD BY THOSE

LYING NORWEGIANS?

THEN, CHANGE HAS COME TO ACLASSIC BOARD GAME, CANDYLAND

NOW COMES WITH AN INSULINPUMP.

AND MY GUEST MICHAEL SHEENPLAYS A 1960s RESEARCHER OF

HUMAN SEXUALITY, YETANOTHER JOB MADE OBSOLETE BY

THE INTERNET.

A NEW STUDY SAYS BREAKFASTIS NO LONGER THE MOST

IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY.

IT HAS FALLEN TO 8th PLACE.

THIS IS "THE COLBERTREPORT."

(AUDIENCE CHANTING "STEPHEN")

>> Stephen: THANK YOU VERYMUCH, THANK YOU, WELCOME TO

THE REPORT, EVERYBODY.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THANKS, EVERYBODY.

IT'S WONDERFUL TO BE HERE.

AS I SAID, FOLKS, FOLKS,IT'S SO GOOD.

IT'S SO GOOD.

THANK YOU.

I THINK YOU KNOW I NEED YOURENERGY, FOLKS IT IS SO GOOD.

IT IS SO GOOD TO HAVE YOUWITH US.

AND IT'S GOOD TO HAVE MEWITH YOU.

PLEASE HAVE A SEAT.

BECAUSE FOLKS, I WAS ONBREAK THE LAST TWO WEEKS,

FINALLY GOT TO SOME LONGDELAYED PROJECTS IN MY

WOODWORKING SHOP.

I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO MAKESOME REALLY NICE BOOK ENDS

BUT I CAN NEVER QUITE GETTHEM TO MATCH.

SO INSTEAD, I WON TWOEMMIES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)YOU KNOW WHAT-- [BLEEP] YEAH.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)YOU KNOW WHAT-- [BLEEP] YEAH.

POINT IS, THE POINT IS,FOLKS, THESE ARE

MEANINGLESS.

AND I WILL KILL YOU IF YOUTRY TO TAKE THEM.

THE POINT IS, I'M BACK.

WHICH IS GOOD.

BECAUSE WITHOUT ME AROUNDFOR THE PAST TWO WEEKS THE

WORLD WENT AND THREW A BIG OLDTRAGEDY PARTY IT WAS LIKE

DON'T TELL MOM THEBABY-SITTER'S DEAD EXCEPT

EVERYONE IS DEAD.

AND WE HAVEN'T HEARD FROMMOM IN A WHILE. I'M WORRIED

BUT VIOLENCE ESCALATED INTHE MIDDLE EAST.

THE EASTERN, MIDDLE EAST ANDMOST UNSTABLE OF ALL, THE

MIDDLE WEST.

JIM?

>> 18-YEAR-OLD MICHAEL BROWNWAS SHOT MULTIPLE TIMES BY A

POLICE OFFICER IN BROADDAYLIGHT.

>> WITNESSES SAY BROWN HADHIS HANDS UP AND WAS

SURRENDERING WHEN HE WASSHOT MULTIPLE TIMES.

>> BROWN'S DEATH HAS SPARKEDA WEEK OF PROTESTS, LOOTING,

A SHOOTING AND SOMETIMESVIOLENT RESPONSES FROM

POLICE.

>> SADLY FERGUSON MISSOURIIS NOW BEST KNOWN FOR RACIAL

CONFLICT, POLICE BRUTALITYAND VIOLENCE IN THE STREETS.

AND NOT AS THEY CLAIMPROUDLY ON THE OFFICIAL CITY

WEBSITE, FOR FOOD TRUCKMONDAYS.

(LAUGHTER)BECAUSE NOW THIS IS THE FOOD

TRUCK.

AND IT SERVES FRESH, HIGHVELOCITY RUBBER BURRITOS.

AND THE HOT PEPPER SAUCE ISNOT OPTIONAL.

FOLKS, THIS IS A GENUINETRAGEDY THAT MANY ARE SAYING

IS THE FOUL HARVEST OF OURRACIST PAST.

BUT I URGE EVERYONE TO WAITTO PASS JUDGEMENT ON OFFICER

DARREN WILSON.

SOME ARE RUSHING TO JUDGETHIS MAN AS A VIOLENT RACIST

COP WHO GUNNED DOWN ANUNARMED BLACK TEENAGER.

BUT OTHERS ARGUE THAT HE ISA HEROIC POLICE OFFICER

DOING HIS JOB BY GUNNINGDOWN AN UNARMED BLACK

TEENAGER.

(LAUGHTER)BUT WE DON'T KNOW IF THIS

WAS RACIST OR EVEN IF RACISMSTILL EXISTS.

I FOR ONE DON'T SEE RACE.

NOT EVEN MY OWN.

PEOPLE TELL ME I'M WHITE ANDI BELIEVE THEM BECAUSE I

KEEP ASKING WAITERS ABOUTGLUTEN.

WHAT WE DO KNOW, WHAT WE DOKNOW IS THE SHOOTING OF AN

UNARMED YOUNG BLACK MAN IS ASTORY WE'VE HEARD FAR TOO

MANY TIMES BEFORE.

AND THE ONLY WAY TO ENSUREWE NEVER HEAR IT AGAIN IS

FOR THE PRESS TO STOPREPORTING IT.

>> I THINK THE COVERAGE HASBEEN A TRAVESTY.

LOOK AT IT FIRST FROM THESTANDPOINT OF QUANTITY.

HOW DID THIS INCIDENTJUSTIFY HUNDREDS IF NOT

THOUSANDS OF NONSTOP HOURSOF COVERAGE WHEN THERE IS SO

MUCH GOING ON IN THE WORLD.

>> THERE ARE A LOT OF BADTHINGS THAT I THINK HAVE

COME FROM JOURNALISTS BEINGTHERE AND FROM ALL THE 24/7

MEDIA SPECULATION.

AND I THINK ONE IS THAT IT'SPROBABLY MADE THINGS MORE

VOLATILE.

>> I WROTE A COLUMN FOR FOXTHIS WEEK SAYING JUST

THEORETICALLY FLOATING THEIDEA, WHAT IF ALL THE

JOURNALISTS IN THIS TOWNPACKED UP THE EQUIPMENT AND

LEFT.

WOULD THAT HAVE HAD ANIMPACT ON THE VIOLENCE.

A LOT OF PEOPLE RESPONDEDAND SAID YES.

>> YES, I RESPOND.

IT'S TRUE.

THE PRESENCE OF A CAMERACLEARLY MAKES PEOPLE BEHAVE

RECKLESSLY.

BECAUSE I DONE BELIEVE FOR AMINUTE THAT HOWIE KURTZ

WOULD HAVE FLOATED THE IDEATHAT JOURNALISTS ARE TO

BLAME FOR THE FERGUSONVIOLENCE IF A CAMERA WASN'T

POINTED AT HIM.

FOR HIS OWN SAFETY GET THISMAN OFF OF TELEVISION.

IS THERE NOTHING-- (APPLAUSE)

>> IS THERE NOTHING TO BEGAINED?

AND THERE IS NOTHING TO BEGAINED BY INFLAMING THE

VOLATILE SITUATION OTHERTHAN A WHOLE LOT OF MONEY.

>> THE FUND-RAISING EFFORTHAS RAISED MORE MONEY THAN

THE MICHAEL BROWN MEMORIALSUNDAY ON THE WEB SITE.

>> FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONSFOR WILSON'S LEGAL FEES HAVE

REACHED AROUND $400,000.

>> EVEN THE MISSOURI CHAPTEROF THE KU KLUX KLAN HAS A

FUND-RAISER PLANNED FORWILSON.

>> EVEN THE LLAN IS PITCHINGIN.

I BELIEVE THEY HELD A BIKINI CARWASH.

NOW FOLKS -- BIKINI CAR WASH.

THAT WAS PRETTY GOOD.

NOW AS IT STANDS SUPPORTERSOF OFFICER WILSON HAVE CROWD

SOURCED MORE MONEY THANSUPPORTERS OF MICHAEL BROWN.

YET SOMEHOW NEITHER HAVERAISED MORE MONEY THAN THE

GLYPH MOBILE PERSONALTHEATRE.

THIS IS WHAT OUR COUNTRYNEEDS.

THAT GUY, HE CAN'T SEE RACEOR THE TRUCK THAT IS ABOUT

TO HIT HIM.

AND WHILE MORE MONEY ISGOING TO OFFICER WILSON,

BROWN SUPPORTERS ARE BEINGBACKED BY AN ORGANIZATION

WITH NO RESPECT FOR THE LAW.

THE WHITE HOUSE.

>> PRESIDENT OBAMA ISSENDING THREE WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIALS TO ATTEND BROWN'SFUNERAL IN ST. LOUIS

MISSOURI.

>> THEY SENT THREE WHITEHOUSE OFFICIALS TO THE

FUNERAL OF MICHAEL BROWN.

WHEN MARGARET THATCHER DIEDLAST YEAR THEY SENT NOBODY.

IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOESMARGARET THATCHER, ONE OF

THE GREATEST LEADERS MERITNOBODY AND MICHAEL BROWN

MERITS 3 WHITE HOUSEOFFICIALS.

>> THE PRESIDENT SAYS ADELEGATION TO FERGUSON YET

HE SENT NOT ONE JUSTICEDEPARTMENT OFFICIAL TO

INVESTIGATE THE MURDER OFMARGARET THATCHER.

(APPLAUSE)AT THE VERY LEAST HE COULD

WITH EMOTIONS BOILING ON BOTHSIDES PEOPLE ARE BEGINNING

TO CALL FOR THE UNTHINKABLE.

A RATIONAL DISCUSSION.

>> WE DO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITYHERE TO TALK ABOUT INCIDENTS

OF RACE.

>> WE STILL NEED TO HAVE ADISCUSSION ON RACE IN

AMERICA.

>> IT IS IMPORTANT WE HAVEOPEN DIALOGUE ABOUT THE

REALITIES OF ISSUES LIKETHIS.

>> I THINK WE SHOULDCONTINUE THIS CONVERSATION

LONG AFTER THE MICHAEL BROWNCASE IS DONE.

>> THIS IS AGAIN ANOTHER TIMETO HAVE AN OPEN DISCUSSION

ABOUT RACE IN SOCIETY.

>> WELL, IF THERE HAS TO BEA FRANK AND HONEST NATIONAL

DISCUSSION ABOUT RACE INAMERICA, I GUESS I'M ALREADY

TALKING. I'LL GO FIRST

FOLKS, OUR NATION HAS A LONGSHAMEFUL

LEGACY OF SYSTEMIC OPPRESSION OFAFRICAN-AMERICANS.

AND I'LL GRANT YOU THINKS AREN'TCOMPLETELY EQUAL

WHITE PEOPLE HAVE BETTERECONOMIC AND EDUCATIONAL

OPPORTUNITIES AND AREREGARDED WITHOUT SUSPICION

BY LAW ENFORCEMENT.

BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, BLACKPEOPLE GET TO USE THE N-WORD.

CAN'T PUT A PRICE ON THAT.

IF YOU COULD, CLIVEN BUNDYAND HIS BUDDIES MIGHT HAVE

PAID IT.

BY THE WAY BLACK PEOPLE, WHYCAN'T YOU BE MORE LIKE THESE

GUYS.

THEY WERE ARMED AND THEYDARED THE COPS TO SHOOT THEM

AND NOTHING HAPPENED.

JUST FIGURE OUT WHATEVER WASDIFFERENT ABOUT THEM AND

YOU'LL BE FINE.

(LAUGHTER)BUT THAT'S JUST ONE

PERSPECTIVE.

THAT'S JUST ONE, MINE.

MINE IS JUST ONE VOICE.

I'M JUST ONE PERSPECTIVEWHEN IT COMES TO THE

NATIONAL CONVERSATION ONRACE.

THIS IS A DIALOGUE.

SO NOW I CEDE THE FLOOR TOONE OF THE BLACK LATE NIGHT

HOSTS TO RESPOND

IN JANUARY OF 2015.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

FOLKS, FOLKS, MY VACATIONWAS JUST FANTASTIC

AND ONE OF THE GREAT THINGSABOUT BEING ON VACATION IS

SPENDING MORE TIME WITH THEWIFE AND KIDS, I ESPECIALLY

LOOK FORWARD TO MY FAMILY'SWEEKLY GAME NIGHT.

EVERYONE'S MINE OFFTHAT-- TAKE EVERYONE'S MIND

OFF THAT CANDLESTICK MURDERTHAT HAPPENED IN OUR

CONSERVATORY.

BUT I RECENTLY LEARNEDSOMETHING DISTURBING ABOUT

ONE OF OUR CLASSIC GAMES.

>> FOR ITS FIRST TIME INNEARLY A DECADE 5,000 NEW

WORDS WILL APPEAR IN THE NEWEDITION OF SCRABBLE'S

OFFICIAL DICTIONARYINCLUDING WORDS LIKE HASHTAG,

SELFIE, BUZZKILL AND BROMANCE.

VIRGINIA JOHNSON HAD NO MEDICALBACKGROUND. SHE TURNED OUT

TO BECOME DR. MASTER'S SECRETARY AND FOUND OUT THAT

HE WAS DOING SORT OF SECRETSEX STUDY BECAUSE IT WAS

VERY CONTROVERSIAL THIS WASIN THE 50s.

>> A SHAKE OF THE LEG, ANDYOU'RE ON TO THE NEXT ONE

BUT YEAH, SO THEY WERE DOINGTHIS-- THIS SEX STUDY BUT

THEY HAD TO SORT OF DO ITBEHIND CLOSED DOORS.

BECAUSE OTHERWISE THEY WOULDBE OUTDOORS AND THAT WOULD

BE WRONG.

>> Stephen: WHICH IS ALSO ALITTLE SEXY.

>> YES.

AND SO SHE HELPED HIM WITHTHAT AND EVENTUALLY SHE

BECAME AN EQUAL PARTNER.

BUT OBVIOUSLY IT WAS VERYCONTROVERSIAL AT THE TIME.

>> Stephen: BUT KINSEY HADALREADY DONE SOME STUFF.

>> HE HAD.

BUT MAINLY RELIED ON ANECDOTALEVIDENCE

>> Stephen: LIKE I HEARDTHIS GUY ONCE DID THIS THING.

>> YEAH.

WELL THIS IS INTERESTINGBECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY

SO MUCH HAS CHANGED NOW.

WE'VE COME SUCH A LONG WAY.

WHEN I WAS IN DRAMA SCHOOL.

>> Stephen: OH MY GOD.

YES.

>> WE USED TO BE AFFILIATED WITHA MEDICAL SCHOOL DOWN THE

ROAD AND SOMETIMES THEY WOULDASK US TO COME AND IMPROVISE AS

PEOPLE WITH SOME SORT OF SEXUALDYSFUNCTION IN THEIR

RELATIONSHIP FOR THE DOCTORS TOLEARN FROM.

SO WE WOULD GET ALL THESEREAL CASES AND THEN WE WOULD

HAVE TO PRETEND WE WERE THENAND THEY WOULD HAVE TO WORK

OUT THE PROBLEM.

AND ONE TIME THE PROBLEM WASTHAT THE COUPLE, THEY

COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEYWEREN'T GETTING PREGNANT

AND IT TURNED OUT THE COUPLEWERE

HAVING SEX IN EACH OTHER'SARMPITS.

>> Stephen: WAS IT GOOD?

>> I CAN UNDERSTAND HOW HEHAS SEX IN HER ARMPIT.

IT'S HARD FOR ME TO UNDERSTANDHOW SHE HAS SEX IN HIS ARMPIT.

>> HOW MUCH YOU HAVE TOLEARN, STEPHEN.

>> Stephen: THAT MIGHT BEWHAT SCISSORING IS

>> AS AN ACTOR DOING THIS,WHAT KIND OF RESEARCH DID

YOU DO. DID YOU HAVE TO DO ARIDE-ALONG?

DID YOU HAVE TO DO ANY SEXRESEARCH. DO YOU ENJOY THE SEX?

>> I DID THE SEX ONCE AND IHAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER LILY.

AS A RESULT.

>> ARE YOU CLAPPING FOR MYDAUGHTER OR THE SEX I HAD.

SO I DID IT THE ONCE IT WASLIKE GOING TO SCHOOL, ON THE

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL I WENT.

MY MOTHER SAID HOW WAS IT ISAID IT WAS LOVELY BUT I'M

NOT GOING AGAIN, BUT THATWAS SORT OF WHAT IT WAS LIKE

WITH THE SEX.

>> Stephen: BUT DID YOULEARN ANYTHING, BECAUSE

HERE'S MY PROBLEM.

HERE'S WHERE THE GUNS COMEOUT.

I THINK SEX IS FINE, I'M AFAN, OKAY.

BUT DO WE HAVE TO LEARNABOUT IT?

DOESN'T THAT TAKE SOME OFTHE MYSTERY OUT OF IT?

YOU KNOW, NOT KNOWING.

I KNOW I'M A GUY, I KNOWWHAT I'VE GOT.

AND THE GIRLS HAVE GOTTHE-- AND NEED WE KNOW MORE

THAN THAT?

I MEAN WHY DISSECT THERAINBOW.

>> THIS IS JUST THE ATTITUDETHAT WILLIAM MASTERS HAD TO

DEAL WITH IN THE '50s.

>> Stephen: AND BECAUSE HEDEALT WITH THAT, NOW WE KNOW

EVERYTHING AND NOTHING ISREALLY EXCITING ANY MORE.

BACK THEN THE SEARS CATALOGWAS A TURN-ON.

NOW THERE'S NOTHING ON THEINTERNET THAT DOESN'T MAKE

ME YAWN.

HAVEN'T WE GONE TOO FAR.

THAT WAS A FORM OF SEX,YAWNING.

THE SPECIAL PORNOGRAPHIC WEBSITES FOR PEOPLE THAT GET

TURNED ON BY YAWNING.

>> DO YOU HAVE -->> WE HAVE GONE TOO FAR.

I MEAN OBVIOUSLY SEX, WE ARENOW INUNDATED WITH IMAGES OF

SEX AND SEXUALITY ALL THETIME.

IT HAS BECOME BRANDED,IT'S BECOME COMMERCIALIZED.

IN SOME WAYS WE ARE JUST ASPRONE TO FEELING SHAME ABOUT

SEX AS IN ITS '50s WHEN THEYKNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT.

DID THESE GUYS GET INTROUBLE WHAT HAPPENED TO

HIM?

>> THEY GOT IN A FAIR AMOUNTOF TROUBLE, YES.
