Each night that Goldman Sachs partner Buckley T. Ratchford doesn't come on the show, Stephen will reveal one digit of his credit card number. (3:24)

( APPLAUSE )

>> Stephen: COME ON!

WELCOME TO "THE REPORT."

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

OH, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN...

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

FOLKS, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

YOU FOLKS AT HOME, YOU FOLKS AT

HOME WOULD NEVER UNDERSTAND HOW

GOOD THESE PEOPLE ARE TO ME.

( LAUGHTER )

I COULD SPEND ALL NIGHT WITH

THEM.

FOLKS, THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON

AMERICANS ARE FACING 9.8%

UNEMPLOYMENT.

THE ONLY CHESTNUTS THEY WANT TO

SEE ROASTING ON AN OPEN FIRE ARE

THE ONES ATTACHED TO WALL STREET

BANKERS, WHO 24 THIS YEAR ARE

GETTING A RECORD $144 BILLION IN

BONUSES.

YOU SEE, THE ECONOMY IS LIKE

"THE PRODUCERS."

YOU CAN MAKE A LOT MORE ON A

FLOP THAN A HIT.

I SAY GOOD FOR THESE GUY, BUT

CONSUMER BANKING CZAR ELIZABETH

WARREN DOESN'T AGREE WITH ME.

>> WALL STREET IS ABOUT TO GIVE

OUT HUGE BONUSES AGAIN.

THIS JUST STAGGERS ME.

I JUST DON'T HAVE WORDS TO

DESCRIBE WHAT THIS MEANS.

>> Stephen: AND, THAT

ELIZABETH WARREN, IS WHY YOU'RE

NOT GETTING A BILLION DOLLAR

BONUS.

( LAUGHTER )

NOW I'D LOVE TO GET ONE OF THESE

BANKERS ON THE SHOW TO HEAR

THEIR SIDE OF THE STORY.

SO FAR NO LUCK, BUT I HAVE A

FEELING THAT MIGHT SOON CHANGE.

YOU SEE, LAST WEEK ONE OF MY

WRITERS WAS DOWN IN TRIBECA, AND

SHE FOUND THIS ON THE STREET.

IT IS A GOLDMAN SACHS MASTER

CARD.

OKAY.

BELONGING TO SOMEONE WHO A QUICK

GOOGLE SEARCH REVEALED IS

PARTNER AT GOLDMAN SACHS.

( LAUGHTER )

AND NOW I HAVE IT.

( LAUGHTER )

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

YEAH, THAT WORKS.

THAT WORKS.

( LAUGHTER )

LET ME TELL YOU, LET ME TELL

YOU, PEOPLE ALWAYS STEREOTYPE

BANKERS AS SILVER-SPOON, IVY

LEAGUE, POLO ENTHUSIASTS WHO

MAJORED IN SALMON-COLORED PANTS.

BUT NOT THIS GUY.

JUST LISTEN TO THIS NAME --

BUCKLEYT. RATCHFORD.

I TELL YOU WHAT, BUCKLEY T.

I'LL HAPPY GIVE YOU THIS CARD

BACK.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS COME ON MY

SHOW AND TALK ABOUT WALL STREET

BONUSES.

AND FOR INCENTIVE, EACH NIGHT

THAT YOU DON'T, I WILL REVEAL

ONE DIGIT OF YOUR CREDIT CARD

NUMBER.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

WHICH, AS WIKILEAKS HAS PROVEN,

IS NOT BLACKMAIL.

IT'S JOURNALISM.

( LAUGHTER )

TONIGHT'S NUMBER: FIVE!

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

THAT'S GOOD.

THAT'S GOOD.

THAT'S A GOOD SPOT FOR A FIVE.

THAT INDICATES A HIGH CREDIT

LIMIT.

SO ACT FAST, BUCKIE.

THE BALL IS IN YOUR SQUASH

COURT, AT LEAST UNTIL I USE YOUR

CARD TO ADD A SQUASH COURT TO MY
