Key Senate elections disprove old political adages, and Los Angeles County decides on burdensome regulations for the porn industry. (3:38)

EVERYBODY.

[CROWD CHEERING]

YOU KNOW, IN ADDITION TO THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE, TONIGHT THE LEADERSHIP OF CONGRESS COULD

CHANGE HANDS.

OR IN THE CASE OF SENATE MINORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL, AMPHIBIANS.

THEY ONLY NEED TO PICK UP FOUR SEATS AND THEY'LL SEIZE CONTROL.

WITH THAT IN MIND LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE KEY RACES.

THE COLBERT REPORT CAN NOW INFORM FORMER GOVERNOR ANGUS KING HAS WON MAKING THE FIRST

SENATE SEAT EVER HELD BY A BURGER KING MENU ITEM.

[LAUGHTER]

AND FOLKS, THIS IS TRUE.

THIS KING IS AN INDEPENDENT.

YOU SAY GOOD-BYE TO BIPARTISAN GRID LOCK AND SAY HELLO TO TRI PARTISAN GRID LOCK.

THROUGH YOU WITH MELTED BETTER, MAINE.

NOW IN INDIANA JOE DONNELLY HAS BEATEN RICHARD MOOREDUCK AFTER MOOREDOCK MADE CONTROVERSY

COMMENT OF RAPE BEING GOD'S INTENTION IS PROVING THE OLD POLITICAL ADAGE THERE'S NO SUCH

THING AS BAD RAPE PUBLICITY.

NOW WE'RE ALSO FOLLOWING THE SENATE RACE IN WISCONSIN WHERE TAMMY BALDWIN HAS BECOME, SHE

HAS BECOME THE FIRST LESBIAN SENATOR.

WELL FIRST OPENLY LESBIAN SENATOR BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT FOOLING ANYBODY, LINDSEY GRAHAM.

NOW OF COURSE IN ADDITION TO THE SENATE WE'RE ALSO TRACKING ALL THE NATION'S REFERENDA.

CALIFORNIA ALONE HAS 11 BALLOT MEASURES THIS YEAR AND FLORIDA HAS MANY THAT MOST VOTERS SIMPLY

SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM AND SAY I AGREE.

THERE'S ONE IN LOS ANGELES THAT COULD AFFECT THE ENTIRE COUNTRY.

LOS ANGELES COUNTY VOTERS WILL DECIDE ON ELECTION DAY IF ACTORS SHOULD FILM CONDOMS WHILE

SHOOTING PORN FILMS AS THE SEX INITIATIVE MEASURE B WOULD NOT ONLY MANDATE THE USE OF CONDOMS

BUT ALSO REQUIRE THE LOS ANGELES DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH TO LEAD INSPECTION AND ENFORCEMENT EFFORTS.

LET'S RIGHT, FOLKS, MORE BURDENSOME REGULATIONS FOR AMERICA'S JOB CREATORS IN THE

KEY SECTORS OF HAND RIM AND BLOW.

BUT, FOLKS I GOT TO SAY TODAY'S MOST WATCHED INITIATIVE HAVE TO DO WITH MARIJUANA.

THAT'S RIGHT.

EVERYONE'S WATCHING YOU MARIJUANA USERS.

IT'S YOUR MEMORANDUM PLUS YOUR STASH, JIMMY.

>> THE QUESTION IS ON MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION.

IT IS UP IN THREE STATES EXAMINE WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT DECRIMINALIZING MARIJUANA, WE'RE

NOT TALKING ABOUT MARIJUANA FOR MEDICINAL USESES WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ACTUALLY LEGALIZING

MARIJUANA IN COLORADO, WASHINGTON AND OREGON.

AND THAT WILL BE FOR ANYBODY OVER THE AGE OF 21.

>> Stephen: WHAT IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO.

21 YEAR OLDS ALLOWED TO SMOKE MARIJUANA?

IT MAKES ME WANT TO DRINK MYSELF INTO A BLIND RAGE AND DO SOMETHING I'LL REGRET.

[LAUGHTER]

BY THE WAY, LAST TIME I CHECKED, THE PRO MARIJUANA VOTES WERE UP 57 OVER 42 AGAINST.

SO JIMMY, LOCK THE DOOR BEFORE MY AUDIENCE MOVES TO DENVER.

[LAUGHTER]

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
