Watch Stephen Colbert ask David which is more damaging to society: crack addiction or The New York Times, here.

Musical guest Chris Ballew, formerly of the Presidents of the United States of America, who has been making great kids' music of late, under the very swanky moniker Caspar Babypants. (He'll also be performing grownup songs, tho his kid songs work for young and old alike.)
