Congress bans Social Security benefits for Nazis, Pizza Hut introduces a mind-reading menu, Amy Sedaris pays a surprise visit, and Christopher Nolan talks "Interstellar."

>> Stephen: TONIGHT ATECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION IN FAST

FOOD.

CHICKEN FINGERS NOW CONTAIN REALFINGER.

THEN I FINALLY TAKE A STAND ON ACONTROVERSIAL ISSUE.

YES THE VATICAN WAS A LITTLEHARSH ON GALILEO.

AND MY GUEST CHRISTOPHER NOLANIS THE DIRECTOR OF

"INTERSTELLAR," "MEMENTO" AND"BATMAN" MOVIES.

I WILL TELL HIM MY THEORY THATBATMAN IS CLARK KENT.

AFTER 40 YEARS, BURGER KING HASBROUGHT BACK THE YUMBO SANDWICH.

DON'T WORRY, SOME OF THEM ARENEW.

THIS IS THE "COLBERT REPORT."

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE][AUDIENCE CHANTING "STEPHEN!"]

Stephen: THANK YOU, LADIESAND GENTLEMEN.

WELCOME TO THE REPORT, GOOD TOHAVE YOU WITH US.

IN HERE, OUT THERE, ALL AROUNDTHE WORLD. MR AND MRS AMERICA

AND ALL THE SHIPS AT SEA

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> Stephen: YOU KNOW I NEED YOUR

ENERGY.

YOU KNOW I NEED IT THANK YOU, SOMUCH FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO

TONIGHT AND EVERY NIGHT YOUHEROES.

YOU IT GETTERS.

FOLKS, THIS SHOW IS NUMBER 1438.

SADLY I HAVE YET TO ACHIEVE ALLOF MY GOALS.

FOR INSTANCE CONGRESS IS STILLBROKEN.

UNFORTUNATELY THE WARRANTYEXPIRED IN 1850.

MILLARD FILLMORE REALLY SHOULDOF SPRUNG FOR THE EXTENDED CARE.

THERE'S JUST SO MUCH PARTISANRANCOR IN WASHINGTON.

DEMS SAY POTAY-TO, REPUBLICANSSAY POTAH-TO, DEMOCRATS SAY

TOMATO, REPUBLICANS SAY, LEAVEJOHN BOEHNER ALONE.

WHICH IS WHY NOTHING GETS DONEIN CONGRESS UNTIL NOW.

>> A NEW FEDERAL BILL CLOSED INTHE HOUSE, CLOSING A LOOPHOLE

THAT ALLOWS SUSPECTED NAZIS TOCOLLECT SOCIAL SECURITY.

>>UNDER CURRENT LAW NAZISUSPECTS CAN

RECEIVE THE BENEFITS UNTIL THEYARE DEPORTED

>> THE HOUSE UNANIMOUSLY PASSEDA BILL DUBBED THE NO SOCIAL

SECURITY FOR NAZIS ACT.

>> Stephen: YES.

[ APPLAUSE ]>> Stephen: YES THE NO SOCIAL

SECURITY FOR NAZIS ACT.

THE MOST POPULAR BILL TO COMEOUT OF CONGRESS SINCE

NO PRE-K FOR THE KKK.

IT'S INSPIRING TO SEE PARTIESJOINING HANDS AND DECLARE ONE

VOICE "NAZIS ARE BAD"

GET OUT OF HERE NAZIS WE'RE NOTGIVING YOU FREE MONEY...ANYMORE,

BECAUSE APPARENTLY WE HAVE BEENCUTTING YOU CHECKS FOR DECADES.

I MEAN, WHOOPS-A-NAZI

ALSO THANKS FOR THE ENTIRE SPACEPROGRAM.

YOUR ROCKETS REALLY LANDED ONTHEIR MARK

IT'S LIKE THE MOON WAS LONDON.OF COURSE, THERE ARE DETAILS

ABOUT OUR FASCIST RETIREMENTPROGRAM WE DON'T

KNOW.

SUCH AS THE TOTAL NUMBER OFNAZIS RECEIVING SOCIAL SECURITY

BENEFITS AND THE DOLLAR AMOUNTSOF THOSE PAYMENTS.

OUR RECORDS WEREN'T QUITE ASORGANIZED AS THE NAZIS WERE.

AND FOLKS, I LOVE THIS BILL.

NO SUBJECT COULD POSSIBLY BRINGREPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS

TOGETHER.

NOT CRISES, NOT WAR, NOT FAMINE.

SO NAZIS, I HAVE COME DOWN HARDON YOU IN THE PAST.

AND YOU DESERVE ALL OF IT,YOU'RE BAD!

BUT YOU GOT CONGRESS TO AGREE ONSOMETHING. SO I JUST WANT TO SAY

AND ONCE AGAIN, WE HAVE ONLY TENMORE SHOWS LEFT.

I WOULDN'T WANT TO GIVE MYENEMIES SOMETHING TO TAKE OUT OF

CONTEXT AND USE AGAINST MEBUT... THANK YOU NAZIS.

[ APPLAUSE ]OKAY.

NOW YOU'RE ON YOUR HONOR NOT TOUSE THAT PEOPLE WHO SEEK TO

DESTROY ME.

FOLKS, THEY SAY A WAY TO A MAN'SHEART IS THROUGH HIS STOMACH

ESPECIALLY AFTER HE HAS EATEN AHEART.

THIS IS "THOUGHT FOR FOOD."

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> Stephen: OH, BURGER, BURGER,

BURGER.

I THINK I WILL MISS YOU MOST OFALL BURGER SANDWICH.

FOLKS, LONG TIME VIEWERS OF THISSENTENCE KNOW I HAVE BEEN VERY

SERIOUS ABOUT WHAT I EAT.

IF IT DOESN'T MAKE ME FEELHEALTHY IT DOESN'T PASS THESE

POUTY KISSABLE LIPS.

THAT'S WHY I'M SO EXCITED ABOUTA NEW BEVERAGE SCIENTIFICALLY

AND SPECIFICALLY ENGINEERED TOMAKE ME FEEL LIKE I'M BEING

HEALTHY.

IT'S CALLED MILK.

NOT JUST ANY MILK.

EXTRA EXPENSIVE SCIENCE MILK.

JIM.

>> WITHIN THREE MINUTES OFCOMING OUT OF OUR COWS FAIRLIFE

MILK IS CHILLED AT 37°FAHRENHEIT KEEPING IT NICE AND

FRESH. MILK HAVE FIVECOMPONENTS: WATER,

VITAMINS AND MINERALS, LACTOSE,PROTEIN, AND FAT

EACH OF WHICH HAS A SLIGHTLYDIFFERENT MOLECULAR SIZE.

AFTER RUNNING THE COLD MILKTHROUGH OUR FILTERS WE RECOMBINE

THE COMPONENTS TO CREATEWHATEVER HIGHLY

NUTRITIOUS RECIPES WE WANT.

WE CAN ADD TWICE THE PROTEIN,TAKE OUT THE LACTOSE.

YOU NAME IT. FAIR LIFE.

>> Stephen: YES, FAIR LIFE.

FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT LIFE JUSTSHY OF GOOD. FOLKS--

[ APPLAUSE ]>> Stephen: MMM, RECOMBINED

MILK. FOLKS THESE E-MOO-GINEERSHAVE FOUND A WAY TO BREAK DOWN

DOWN MILK INTO PARTS AND

PUT IT BACK TOGETHER ANY WAYTHEY WANT.

IT'S LIKE THEY GOT FRANKENSTEINTO LACTATE.

AS A RESULT FAIR LIFE HAS 50%MORE PROTEIN AND CALCIUM THAN

REGULAR MILK.

TO GET THAT KIND OF NUTRITIONBEFORE

I WOULD HAVE TO DRINK ALITTLE MORE MILK.

AND YOU CAN TRUST THIS BEEFED UPMILK IS GOOD FOR YOU BECAUSE

IT'S MADE BY THE NATURE LOVINGHEALTH NUTS AT COCA-COLA.

AND --[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Stephen: AND IF THIS PRODUCTDOESN'T WORK OUT THEY CAN

INTRODUCE MILK CLASSIC.

NEXT UP ON THE THOUGHT FORFOODS.

SO, LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS"INTERSTELLAR THING"

THIS IS I BELIEVE A TROJAN HORSEFOR SCIENCE.

THE WHOLE POINT FOR THE PEOPLEWHO HAVEN'T SEEN IT TELL THEM

WHAT HAPPENS.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN IT ANDDON'T UNDERSTAND.

IT'S ABOUT PEOPLE TRAVELING OUTIN SPACE TO FIND A NEW HOME,

RIGHT?

>> IT IS. IT'S ABOUT

ABOUT A POTENTIAL MOMENT INHUMAN DEVELOPMENT.

MAYBE THE NEXT STEP IN HUMANEVOLUTION.

>> Stephen: EARTH IS IN BADSHAPE IN THE MOVIE.

>> YES THEY HAVE TO FIND ANOTHERPLANET TO SUSTAIN HUMAN LIFE.

>> Stephen: THAT'S MY FIRSTQUESTION HERE.

THE MOST HOPEFUL THING AT THEBEGINNING OF THE MOVIE IS THAT

WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO ABANDON OURPLANET.

[LAUGHING]>> Stephen: THAT'S THE GOOD

NEWS.

WE MAY SCRAPE THE DIRT OF THISTHING OFF OF OUR BOOTS AND GO

SOMEWHERE ELSE.

HAVE YOU GIVEN UP ON THE EARTH.

>> I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP ON THEEARTH.

>> Stephen: YOUR HEROES DO.

>> MY HEROES DO?

IT'S NOT THE QUESTION OF GIVINGUP ON THE EARTH AS MUCH AS

HAVING FAITH IN HUMANITY. THEOPTIMISM IN

THE FILM IS PERHAPS HUMANITY MAYNEED YOU IN THE FUTURE OR

IS CAPABLE OF EXISTINGINDEPENDENTLY OF THE EARTH.

MAY HAVE A GREATER PLACE OUTTHERE IN THE UNIVERSE.

THE UNIVERSE IS AN INCREDIBLY VAST PLACE.

>> Stephen: IT'S BIG TOO.

REALLY BIG.

>> IT'S VERY BIG.

Stephen: YES.

>> MAYBE THERE ARE OTHER PLACESFOR US TO LIVE.

>> Stephen: IS IT GLOBAL WARMINGOR CLIMATE CHANGE?

WHAT'S HAPPENED TO THE EARTHHERE?

>> WHAT'S HAPPENED ISAGRICULTURAL BLIGHT.

Stephen: AGRICULTURAL BLIGHT?

>> YES CROPS ARE DYING.

CORN IS ALL THAT'S LEFT.

>> Stephen: WHAT ELSE IS THERE?

I JUST NEED MY CORN CHIPS ANDHIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP.

>> THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE LIVING ONAND MAKING A LIFE AND ADAPTING

AS HUMANS DO.

THAT'S COMING TO AN END.

YOU KNOW WE BASE THE END OF THEWORLD SCENARIO ON THINGS THAT

HAVE HAPPENED.

PEOPLE ARE GIVING TESTIMONIALSAT THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW.

THERE ARE REAL PEOPLE.

WE DREW IT FROM KEN BURNSDOCUMENTARY ON THE DUST BOWL.

THAT'S A SCIENCE FICTION FILMBUT I WANTED THE FEELING OF

DREAD AND IMBALANCE TO THEPLANET TO BE REAL AND CREDIBLE.

>> Stephen: WHAT ELSE CAN WE SAYWITHOUT GIVING ANYTHING AWAY.

THERE ARE EXTRAORDINARY THINGSIN THE MOVIE. THE MOVIE, I

HAVEN'T SEEN A MOVIE LIKE THISBEFORE.

LET'S TAKE A LITTLE CLIP HERE.THIS'LL GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF

THE PART THAT IS THE BLOW UPPART.

THE PART THAT IS THE BLOW UPPART.

I DON'T WANT TO GIVE ANYTHINGAWAY IN THE MOVIE.

ARE WE HAPPENING NOW OR IS THISWATCHING OURSELVES IN THE PAST?

DO YOU BELIEVE ALL TIME ISHAPPENING AT ONCE?

>> I BELIEVE IF YOU ARE CAPABLEOF LIVING IN A FIVE-DIMENSIONAL

WORLD AND YOU'RE A FIFTHDIMENSIONAL CREATURE VIEWING

TIME AS A DIMENSION IT WOULDHAVE TO BE REWRITTEN.

>> Stephen: YOU DID NOT ANSWERMY QUESTION.
