Quotes:
Jon Stewart:What are you doing?
Stephen Colbert:I'm sorry, I'm just enjoying these delicious prunes.
Jon Stewart:Do you need to do that right now, do you need to eat prunes?
Stephen Colbert:Yes, Jon, I need to. You know what, I think right now America needs a prune. It may not be a young, sexy plum. Granted, it is shrivelled and at times hard to swallow, but this dried-up old fruit has the experience we need.
Jon Stewart:You know, after eight years of prunes you would think...
Stephen Colbert:Never enough. What could possibly go wrong?

very poorly produced show, 21 September 2008
Author: chandlerbing28 from California

This was an amazingly poorly produced show. Even Oprah seemed stilted and her speech was too long. The most outrageously bad part had to do with the five reality show hosts. They killed time in the most ridiculous way, having nothing to say and making that their "bit." It was appalling. Howie Mandel talked way too much, and Tom Bergeron and Heidi Klum said nothing. Then, they pulled off Heidi Klum's clothes because she was wearing a suit instead of a tiny dress!! Then, they dragged out the announcement of the winner, by having them wait for a commercial. Jimmy Kimmel was insulting and not funny, and his "the judges said..." section didn't even make sense on top of not being funny because he was mixing judges from different shows. More time wasting. The winner even apologized for it, that was how bad it was!!! People even referred to their own sections as time wasters.

There was a very long, unfunny and excruciating "bit" between Ricky Gervais and Steve Carell. This was the only time Steve has ever not been funny or charming, and it was because he had ridiculous material.

Even the new Scorcese/Tina Fey commercial was long and appallingly boring (now he describes the timeshare in Boca). Put it this way--it makes those Seinfeld/Bill Gates commercials seem funny and organized in comparison.

Josh Groban doing a medley of theme songs--I couldn't hit the mute button fast enough. Was he serious? That being said, the actors made the best of it--everyone looked terrific and was in good spirits. The one thing I did like about the show was that they used the sets from the actual shows, but they barely showed them.

It was also nice to see some older actors, like Mary Tyler Moore and Betty White, introduce an award.
