While there are some things in life worth standing up for, folks in Lexington, KY, would rather sit down for them. (2:52)

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Stephen: THANK YOU

EVERYBODY, WE WILL COME BACK,

FOLKS.

I JUST WANT TO REMIND EVERYBODY

THAT ON FRIDAY JULY FIRST AT

8:00 PM, YOU CAN SEE ME LIVE AT

THE GAILLARD MUNICIPAL

AUDITORIUM IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH

CAROLINA ,TO BENEFIT THE MEDICAL

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA'S

JAMES W. COLBERT ENDOWED CHAIR.

THEY PROVIDE THE CHAIR; I

PROVIDE THE ENDOWED.

[LAUGHTER]

I'LL BE INTERVIEWED BY MSNBC'S

JONATHAN ALTER AND TAKING YOUR

QUESTIONS.

AND I'LL BE SPEWING SUCH JUICY

SECRETS, THE FIRST THREE ROWS

WILL BE PROVIDED PONCHOS.

SEE YOU THERE.

FOLKS, I LOVE MY HOME TOWN

BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT SMALL TOWN

AMERICA IS THE REAL AMERICA.

THAT'S WHERE YOU CAN STILL FIND

GOOD MORALS, A STRONG WORK

ETHIC, AND PRIMO METH.

[LAUGHTER]

I MEAN, THE HIGH SPEED CHICKEN

FEED.

SO IT'S TIME FOR MY LATEST

HOMETOWN HEROTOWN.

THIS WEEK'S HOMETOWN HERO-TOWN

LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY!

WHERE FOLKS KNOW THAT THERE ARE

SOME THINGS IN LIFE WORTH

STANDING UP FOR.

THEY'D JUST RATHER SIT DOWN FOR

THEM.

JIM?

>> SIT DOWN AND LISTEN TO THIS

ONE, LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY, IS THE

MOST SEDENTARY CITY IN THE U.S.

A STUDY BY "MEN'S HEALTH"

MAGAZINE FOUND IT'S THE MOST

INACTIVE PLACE IN THE U.S.

INDIANAPOLIS AND JACKSON ROUND

OUT THE TOP THREE.

>> Stephen: SORRY, INDIANAPOLIS

AND JACKSON.

IF YOU WANT TO BEAT LEXINGTON,

YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO WAKE UP

PRETTY LATE IN THE MORNING.

[LAUGHTER]

THE SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED BY

"MEN'S HEALTH" MAGAZINE.

MY GO-TO SOURCE FOR VAGUELY

HOMOEROTIC FITNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

AND THE HOTTEST PROTEIN POWDER

RECOMMENDATIONS MONTHS BEFORE

THEY'RE RECALLED.

[LAUGHTER]

LEXINGTON BEAT OUT 100 OTHER

AMERICAN CITIES BASED ON DATA

REGARDING HOW MUCH THEY

EXERCISE, HOW MANY HOURS OF TV

THEY WATCH A WEEK, AND HOW MANY

VIDEO GAMES A YEAR THEY BUY.

SOME OF THE POPULAR VIDEO GAME

TITLES INCLUDED:

"WII HAMMOCK" AND "CALL OF DUTY:

LET IT GO TO VOICEMAIL."

[LAUGHTER]

SO LEXINGTON, IN RECOGNITION OF

YOUR NON-ACHIEVEMENT, I AM

PRESENTING YOU WITH THIS YEAR'S

GOLDEN REACHER-GRABBER.

PUT IN ON YOUR MANTLE PROUDLY.

I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING --

THAT MANTLE YOU WANT TO PUT IT

ON IS HIGH AND UNREASONABLY FAR

FROM THE COUCH WHICH IS WHY THE

GOLDEN REACHER GRABBER COMES

WITH A SECOND REACHER GRABBER.

[LAUGHTER]

YOU PICK THAT UP THERE.

THERE YOU GO.

SO CONGRATULATIONS LEXINGTON,

KENTUCKY.

BE SURE TO SHOW THIS AWARD TO

SOME FRIENDS YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IN

A WHILE.

YOUR FEET.
