OF THE FINGER.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)BING BING BING BING

BING-- NATION, I LOVES ME SOME

HYDRAULIC FRACKING.

NOT ONLY IS IT GOING TO MAKEUS ENERGY INDEPENDENT, I

KNOW MAKES MARK RUFFALOANGRY AND

I'M TRYING TO UNLEASH THEHULK.

SOME HAVE TURNED ON BIG OILCOMPANIES BECAUSE FRACKING

HAS BEEN KNOWN TOCONTAMINATE WATER SUPPLIES

AND CAUSE TINY EARTHQUAKES.

BUT THESE COMPANIES ARE GOODGUYS.

TAKE CHEVRON.

RECENTLY AFTER CAUSING AFATAL GAS EXPLOSION IN

BOBTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA, THEYDID THE RIGHT THING.

>> CHEVRON IS TRYING TO MAKEAMENDS FOR THE DEADLY GAS

BALL FIRE THAT TOOK NEARLY AWEEK TO PUT OUT.

THE COMPANY WENTDOOR-TO-DOOR IN THE AREA

NEAR THE WELL THIS WE CANHANDING OUT COUPONS.

>> THE COUPON IS FOR A LARGEPIZZA AND A TWO LITRE DRINK

FROM THE LOCAL PIZZA SHOP.

>> Stephen: FREE PIZZA.

(LAUGHTER)OF COURSE THAT'S FOR A GAS

WELL FIRE.

IT'S THE CHEMICALS IN YOURDRINKING WATER CAUSE

NEUROLOGICAL DAMAGE, YOU GETCRAZY BREAD.

(LAUGHTER)SO TONIGHT I'M GIVING A TIP

OF THE HAT TO CHEVRON.

IT'S THE LEAST THEY COULDDO.

LITERALLY, I THINK IT IS THELEAST THEY COULD POSSIBLY DO.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)NOW IT TURNS OUT, TURNS OUT

THE COUPONS ARE FOR BOBTOWNPIZZA SPECIAL COMBO.

WE AT THE COLBERT REPORTCALLED BOBTOWN PIZZA THIS IS

TRUE.

A SPECIAL COMBO IS A $12VALUE WHICH IS ALSO THE SAME

VALUE OF YOUR LAND ONCECHEVRON IS DONE WITH IT.

(LAUGHTER)AND BONUS, IF THERE'S LEFT

OVER PIZZA THE NEXT MORNING,JUST REHEAT IT IN YOUR SINK.

(LAUGHTER)FOLKS, I WOULD TAKE THAT DEAL

BECAUSE I HAVE SAID ITBEFORE, I LOVE EATING.

IT'S ONE OF THE TOP THREETHINGS I DO WITH FOOD.

(LAUGHTER)BUT NATION I'M AS STEAMED AS

THE VEGETABLES I WILL NEVEREAT BY THE LATEST OVERREACH

OF THE OBAMA NANNY STATE.

>> A NEW CHANGE ANNOUNCEDTHIS MORNING TO THE

NUTRITION LABELS YOU SEE INGROCERY STORES.

THE FOOD AND DRUGADMINISTRATION IS PROPOSING

CHANGES TO THE LABELS FORTHE FIRST TIME IN OVER TWO

DECADES.

>> THE FDA WILL PROPOSELARGER BOLDER TYPE FOR

CALORIES AND FOR THE FIRSTTIME CONSUMER WAS KNOW

WHETHER THEIR FOODS HADADDED SUGAR.

>> CALORIES WILL BE REALLYPROMINENT.

AT A GLANCE YOU CAN SEE THECALORIES BIG AND BOLD.

>> Stephen: NICE TRY BUTTHOSE LABELS ARE NOT BIG AND

BOLD ENOUGH FOR AMERICANS TOREAD THROUGH THEIR EYE FAT.

(LAUGHTER)SO I'M GIVING A WAG OF MY

FINGER TO THE FDA FORCRAMMING TOO MUCH KNOWLEDGE

DOWN MY BRAIN THROAT.

I SAY FOOD LABELS ONLY NEEDTO TELL ME THREE THINGS.

SWEET OR SPICY.

SOFT OR CRUNCHY AND WHICHHOLE DO I STICK IT IN?

(LAUGHTER)OKAY?

AND FOLKS IT JUST GETS WORSE.

>> FOOD LABELS WILL HAVE TOSPELL OUT MORE CLEARLY HOW

SERVING SIZES ARE MEASURED.

TAKING INTO ACCOUNT HOW WEREALLY EAT FOOD LIKE POTATO

CHIPS AND CANDY BARS.

SERVING SOIZS FOR SODA, FORINSTANCE L GO FROM 8 OUNCES

TO 12 OUNCES.

>> THEY MAY SAY THIS ISTYPICALLY TWO SERVINGS BUT

HERE IS ALSO THE PACKAGEDATA.

>> A BAG OF POTATO CHIPS,FOR EXAMPLE, IF IT'S LIKELY

YOU'RE GOING EAT THE WHOLE BAGIN A SINGLE SITTING THEY

WILL LABEL AS SUCH.

>> OF COURSE I'M GOING TOEAT THE WHOLE BAG IN A SINGLE

SITTING.

WHY DO YOU THINK I SAT DOWN?

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN DID--

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> YOU CAN'T SUDDENLY CHANGE

SERVING SIZES.

THE ONLY THING KEEPING MEFROM POLISHING OFF AN ENTIRE

PINT OF AMERICONE DREAM ISKNOWING THAT IT'S ACTUALLY

FOUR SERVINGS.

OF COURSE I DO EAT THE WHOLETHING BUT AT LEAST I'M

GETTING THREE FULL SERVINGS OFSHAME.

(LAUGHTER)BUT IF THE SAME PINT IS 2

SERVINGS, THAT SHAME WILLKICK IN MUCH LATER AND I

WILL HAVE TO EAT 2 PINTS.

SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUSTLABEL EVERYTHING [BLEEP] IT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY,THANKS SO MUCH.

NATION, YOU KNOW, I DON'TTHINK THERE'S ANY OTHER WAY

TO SAY IT AND THERE ISABSOLUTELY NO SUGARCOATING

IT AT THIS POINT.

CABLE NEWS RATINGS ARE RAPIDLYDECLINING.

I SAW THAT ON CNN WHICH ISWHY NOBODY HEARD ABOUT IT.

AND NO ONE HAS BEEN MOREAFFECTED THAN HLN FORMALLY

KNOWN AS HEADLINE NEWS.

MUCH LIKE HOW KFC WAS FORMALLYKNOWN AS THE LEARNING CHANNEL

>> RECENTLY THEY ANNOUNCED ASUREFIRE WAY TO BRING IN THE

YOUTH.

BECAUSE HLN WILL REFORMATAND REBRAND IN 2014 TO

BECOME THE FIRST TV NETWORKFOR THE SOCIAL MEDIA

GENERATION MILLENNIALS, ANDTHE MILLENNIAL MINDED.

YES, NOW HLN WILL CATERYOUNG PEOPLE INSTEAD OF JUST

SENDING NANCY GRACE AFTERMISSING WHITE ONES.

IN FACT, SHE CAN INTERNET UPHER SHOW RIGHT AWAY BY

CHANGING THE NAME TO ERROR404, BLOND GIRL NOT FOUND.

FOLKS, THIS SOCIAL MEDIAREBRAND FOR MILLENNIALS IS

THE BRAINCHILD OF HLNGENERAL MANAGER ALBIE HECHT.

WHOA!

WHOA, WHO LET IN #ASHTONKUTCHER TO RUN A NETWORK?

I CARLY HE'S SO RAVEN.

NOW ALBIE HERE OR AS HISMILLENNIAL BUDS CALL HIM,@SENIOR

DISCOUNT, HAS TO REBRANDEDHLN AS THE FIRST TV HOME TO

EMBRACE THE SOCIAL MEDIAGENERATION AND CHAMPION ITS

INTERESTS.

YES.

MILLENNIALS FAVORITE PLACETO GET THE INTERNET IS

ALWAYS TV.

I AM PUMPED FOR HLN NEWSHOWS LIKE KEYWORDS, A GAME

SHOW THAT ASKS CONTESTANTSTO IDENTIFY THE SEARCH TERM

WITH KEY WORD CLUES.

FOR INSTANCE.

REALITY STAR AND SEX TAPEARE KEY WORDS FOR THE ANSWER

KIM KARDASHIAN.

JUST LIKE THE SEARCH TERMDESPERATE AND TAILSPIN ARE

KEY WORDS FOR HLN.

THEN-- THEN THERE IS THESHOW ONE PERIOD CLICK PERIOD

AWAY WHICH REVEALS THEUNTOLD STORY BEHIND ON-LINE

CLASSIFIEDS.

LIKE THAT MISCONNECTION FROMTHE ANONYMOUS GUY WHO SAW

THE YOUNG WOMAN READINGGREAT EXPECTATIONS IN THE

UPTOWN TRAIN.

UNTOLD STORY, HE WANTED TOHAVE SEX WITH HER.

(LAUGHTER)BUT I THINK THE MOST

MILLENNIAL OF ALL IS HLN'SNEW APP #WHAT'S YOUR FOMO TO

COLLECT A LIST OF YOUR FOMO,FEAR OF MISSING OUT.

MY NUMBER ONE FOMO FEAR OFMISSING OUT ON ANYTHING ELSE

WHILE I'M WASTING MY LIFEON WHAT'S YOUR FOMO.

AN HLN NEW LINE-UP ISINSPIRED BY THE BEST IN

THE BIZ. AS ALBIE HECHT TOLD"THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER", I

WATCH STEPHEN COLBERT.

TONALLY THAT'S AN ARENA WEWANT TO MOVE INTO AS AN

EDITORIAL VOICE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)WOW.

STEPHEN COLBERT, I LOVE HISTONAL ARENA.

I HAD NO IDEA THESE SHOWSWERE MY FAULT.

FROM NOW ON, TCR IS GOING TOBE THE MOST MILLENNIALIZED

GEN Y-IFIED MULTISCREEN SNAPCHAT TWIT-O-VID

EVER BROADCAST BY A BOX INVENTEDIN 1927 BY A POTATO FARMER.

>> WELCOME BACK, MY GUESTTONIGHT CREATED HOUSE OF

CARDS, ABOUT A MURDEROUSBACK STABBING POWER HUNGRY

POLITICIAN. WHERE DO I SENDMY CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION.

PLEASE WELCOME BEAU WILLIMON.

HEY, BEAU, THANKS FOR COMINGON.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DON'TKNOW YOU ARE THE CREATOR

SHOW RUNNER AND WRITER FORHOUSE OF CARDS.

>> LAST YEAR WAS NOMINATEDFOR 9 EMMIES, FIRST ON-LINE

SHOW TO EVER WIN A MAJORCATEGORY.

I GOT A BONE TO PICK WITHYOU.

>> ALL RIGHT.

>> Stephen: I'M TWO MINDSABOUT YOU.

>> OKAY.

WHAT'S THE FIRST ONE.

>> Stephen: THE FIRST ONE ISI HAVE DONE 75 BETTER KNOW A

DISTRICTS AND I'VE MET THESEPEOPLE, THESE CONGRESSMAN

AND YOU HAVE GOT THEM DEADTO RIGHTS.

THEY ARE CUNNING.

THEY ARE SUPERMOTIVATED,SEXY PEOPLE AND YOU

CAN'T-- AND YOU CAN'T GETANYTHING BY THEM.

ALL RIGHT?

THE SECOND THING IS THATYOU ARE SHOWING THE CHINESE

WHAT OUR DEMOCRACY'S LIKE INA BAD LIGHT.

YOU KNOW THE CHINESELEADERSHIP LOVE-- SAY THAT

IS WHAT YOU GET WITHDEMOCRACY.

>> THE REMARKABLE THING ISTHAT THE SHOW IS NOT AT ALL

CENSORED IN CHINA, IT IS ONEOF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL

AMERICAN SHOWS IN I THINKCHINESE TELEVISION HISTORY.

AND IT IS A HUGE HIT THEREAND I THINK PART OF THE

REASON IS EXACTLY AS ARE YOUSAYING, IT PROVES JUST WE

ARE AS CORRUPT AS ANYONEELSE.

>> Stephen: DO YOU-- HOW-- ITHINK IT'S PERFECTLY

ACCURATE.

I HAVE MET MEMBERS OFCONGRESS AND THEY ARE JUST

LIKE KEVIN SPACEY.

(LAUGHTER)HOW ACCURATE ARE YOU TRYING

TO BE?

>> KEVIN'S CHARACTERDOES SOME THINGS THAT ARE A

LITTLE ETHICALLY DUBIOUS.

THERE MIGHT IT BE LEAVINGSOMEONE IN A GARAGE WHILE

THE CAR IS RUNNING.

THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHINGINVOLVING A SUBWAY TRAIN.

AND I DON'T-- .

>> Stephen: THIS HE IS SONHE BECOMES VICE PRESIDENT.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

>> Stephen: HOW MANY PEOPLEHAS JOE BIDEN BLUDGEONED TO

DEATH?

DO YOU THINK IT'S A DEPICTIONOF A WASHINGTON PEOPLE

RECOGNIZE?

>> LOOK, ONE THING THEY DORECOGNIZE IS THAT IN OUR

SHOW AS IN THE REAL WORLD,WE HAVE A WASHINGTON THAT IS

PARALYZED BY POLITICALGRIDLOCK.

WHAT WE HAVE, WHAT WE'REABLE TO DO IS SEE SOMEONE

THAT CAN CUT THROUGH THATGRIDLOCK LIKE A KNIFE

THROUGH BUTTER AND THAT ISONE OF THE DELICIOUS ASPECTS

OF THE SHOW.

SOMEONE WHO ACTUALLY GETSTHINGS DONE.

>> Stephen: OKAY THAT IS THEFANTASY PART OF THE SHOW.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

>> Stephen: WHAT I AM MOSTLYSEEING--

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: OF COURSE THE

OTHER FANTASY PART OF THESHOW IS THAT HE IS A WHITE

DEMOCRAT FROM MY HOME STATEOF NORTH CAROLINA.

>> JOHN SPRATT.

>> Stephen: EATS NO FAT.

>> HE IS A SOUTHERN DEMOCRATWHO REPRESENTED THE FIFTH

DISTRICT.

>> Stephen: WAS, THE WORDIS WAS.

>> THAT'S TRUE, WAS, FOROVER 20 YEARS.

AND ONE OF THE REASONS WEMADE FRANK A SOUTHERN

DEMOCRAT IS BECAUSE IT'S NOTSOME OF ABOUT IDEOLOGY FOR

SOUTHERN DEMOCRAT, IT'SABOUT PERSONAL

RELATIONSHIPS.

>> Stephen: SO ANYWAY, HEAND HIS WIFE ROBIN WRIGHT

THERE, THEY'RE BOTH, YOUKNOW, JUST COLD-BLOODED IN

THEIR PURSUIT OF POWER.

WHO ARE THEY BASED ON IN THEDEMOCRATIC PARTY?

ARE THEY-- ARE THEY BASED ONBILL AND HILLARY OR ARE THEY

BASED ON HILLARY AND BILL?

>> Stephen: THERE'S GOT TOBE-- I WORKED FOR HILLARY IN

2000 FOR HER FIRST SENATECAMPAIGN AND WORKED, THE

SENATOR FROM NEW YORK CHUCKSCHUMER IN 1998.

AND LOOK, ANYONE WHO GETSELECTED TO SENATE IN NEW

YORK KNOWS WHATROUGH-AND-TUMBLE POLITICS IS

AND CERTAINLY FRANK ANDCLAIRE ARE MASTERS AT THAT

GAME.

>> Stephen: ONE OF THEUNIQUE THINGS ABOUT THIS

SHOW IS THAT OCCASIONALLYUNDERWOOD LOOKS RIGHT INTO

THE CAMERA AND SAYS WHAT ISON HIS MIND.

WHY DOES HE DO THAT?

THAT'S SOMETHING WE STOLEFROM THE BBC VERSION, THEY

STOLE IT FROM A GUY NAMEDSHAKESPEARE, I DON'T KNOW IF

YOU HEARD OF HIM, AND WHATTHAT ALLOWS TO YOU DO IS

HAVE DIRECT COMMUNICATIONWITH THE AUDIENCE IT MAKES

THEM COMPLICIT IN HISNEFARIOUS ACTS, THEY BECOME

ACCOMPLICES TO HIS CRIMESAND YOU FIND YOURSELF

ROOTING FOR THIS GUY DESPITEYOURSELF THAT IS WHAT

DRAMATIC TENSION ISINTERESTING TO US.

>> Stephen: AT THIS POINT IKNEW I HAD HIM.

WHY DO YOU THINK PEOPLE INWASHINGTON LOVE IT SO MUCH,

BECAUSE IT'S ALL THEY TALKABOUT RIGHT NOW I THINK

THEY'RE TRYING TO SEETHEMSELVES IN IT I THINK

THEY WANT TO THINK THATTHEY'RE SEXY AND DANGEROUS.

>> LOOK, THE FACT THATPRESIDENT OBAMA HIMSELF

TWEETED ABOUT THE SHOWPREVIOUS TO THE SECOND

SEASON RELEASE SAYING NOSPOILERS --

>> HUGE DEAL.

AND WHEN WE WERE THERE FORTHE WHITE HOUSE.

>> WHEN WE -->> YEAH, I MEAN ON THE ONE

HAND I AM THINKING YOU KNOW,13 HOURS IS A BIG CHUNK OF

YOUR DAY.

>> I KNOW, EXACTLY.

>> WE GOT THE RUSSIANSROLLING INTO CRIMEA AND HE'S

NOT RESPONDING BECAUSE HE'SBINGE WATCHING YOUR SHOW

RIGHT NOW.

>> YEAH.

>> THANKS A LOT.

>> I THINK, I THINK THAT YOUKNOW THE REASON WASHINGTON

HAS RESPONDED SO WELL, WETAKE GREAT EFFORT TO BE AS

AUTHENTIC AS POSSIBLE.

WE HAVE A DARK EXAGGERATEDVIEW OF DC.

NOT EVERYONE OUT THERE IS ACOLD BLOODED KILLER.

>> Stephen: DO YOU THINKTHERE ARE THINGS THAT

POLITICIANS CAN LEARN FROMWATCHING YOUR SHOW, CAN

OBAMA LEARN ANYTHING FROMWATCHING YOUR SHOW OTHER

THAN WATCH OUT FOR YOUR VICEPRESIDENT.

>> WELL, THE WAY THAT FRANKOPERATES IS HE BELIEVES THE

IDEOLOGY IS QUICKSAND ITDOESN'T ALLOW YOU ANY

FLEXIBILITIES.

COMPROMISE HAS BECOME ANAUGHTY WORD IN WASHINGTON.

BUT COMPROMISE IS WHAT GOODGOVERNANCE IS ALL ABOUT.

AND WHEN YOU ARE STUCK INYOUR OWN IDEOLOGY, ARE YOU

NOT WILLING TO MOVE TOWARDSTHE MIDDLE, THEN NOTHING CAN

BE ACCOMPLISHED.

FRANK WILL DO ANYTHING HENEED ITS TO IN ORDER TO GET

SOMETHING DONE IN THOSETHIRD EPISODE OF SEASON TWO

WE HAVE A POTENTIALGOVERNMENT FREEZE OR

SHUTDOWN.

AND YOU KNOW, THEREPUBLICANS WON'T BUDGE, THE

DEMOCRATS WON'T BUDGE.

HE GOES LET'S GIVE THEREPUBLICANS EVERYTHING THEY

WANT.

SO HE SAYS LET'S RAISE THEAGE OF RETIREMENT.

AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE IN AFLUMMOX ABOUT THIS BUT HE

SAYS IF WE ARE ABLE TO GIVEWHAT THEY WANT WE WILL GIVE

WHAT WE WANT.

THAT'S [BLEEP] THOUGH.

>> Stephen: BEAU, THANK YOUSO MUCH FOR JOINING ME, BEAU

WILLIMON, HOUSE OF CARDS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> THAT'S IT FOR THE REPORT,EVERYBODY, GOOD NIGHT.

>> THAT'S IT FOR THE REPORT,EVERYBODY, GOOD NIGHT.
