come back every night. thank you so much. absolutely serious. did you guys watch the debate on cnbc last night? yeah, yeah, yeah, i'm so sorry. now i did watch it. and in some ways it was impressive. it managed to thread the needle between confusing and boring. but if i'm going to talk about the debate, it's now or never. though never is attempting option. okay, and i blame the moderators because it started on the very first question. >> this is an open question. this series of debates is essentially a job interview with the american people. and in any job interview, you know this, you get asked what is your biggest weakness. so in 30 seconds, what is your biggest weakness, and what are you doing to address it. >> stephen: yes, they opened with the one question that no one in human history has ever
12:27 am
answered honestly. (laughter) (applause) >> stephen: in fact, when i-- when i interviewed, when i interviewed for this job, i said my biggest weakness was sometimes i work so hard i forget to cash my paychecks. (laughter) but of all the nonanswers the candidates then gave, ted cruz's was the most least. >> you want someone to grab a beer with, i may not be that guy. but if you want someone to drive you home, i will get the job done. (laughter) >> stephen: that's a great appeal to the voters, ted cruz 2016, get in the car. (laughter)
12:28 am
and after the first question, cnbc showed us how to conduct a debate unburdened by a shred of respect. >> senator rubio, are you skipping more votes than any senator to run for president. >> governor bush, the fact that you are at the fiflt lectern tonight shows how far your stock has fallen in this race, mr. trump, is this a comic book version of a presidential campaign. >> your board fired you, i just wondered why you think we should hire you now. >> stephen: wow, that is the most disrespectful question since the lincoln-douglas debated started with mr. lincoln douchebag says what? and what's the moderators lacked in courtesy they made up for in lack of preparation. >>. >> mr. trump stay on this issue of immigration. you have been very critical of park zuckerberg of facebook who has wanted to increase the numbers of. >> i was not at all critical of him. >> i was not at all kit kal of him. >> where did i read this and come up with this that you.
12:29 am
>> probably, i don't know, you people write this stuff. i don't know where you-- >> stephen: to be fair, that was just journalism 101. who, when, where, why and what the hell am i talking about? but i got to hand it to the republicans. they stood their ground and they put up a fight. >> the questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the american people don't trust the media. >> done all trump, are you a comic book villain, ben carson can you do math. >> such a nasty question, it's not a very nicely asked question the way you say that. >> john? >> do you want me to answer or do you want to answer. cuz i got to till the truth. even in new jersey what you are doing is called rude >> jon: yeah, yeah,-- >> stephen: yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. listen to the governor of new jersey. he knows the people in his home state act like animals.
12:30 am
closing statements in newark get chopped up and dumped in the meadowlands. so there you have it. much like the campaign season itself, last night felt like an unending slog, and bleefer it or not, it could have been even unendinger if it wasn't for the heroic action taken by the knight in shining bronzer. jim? >> these folks, cnbc, they had it down at three, three and a half hours. i went out and said it's ridiculous, i could stand up here all night. nobody wants to watch three and a half or three hours. we called in. we said that's it we're not doing it. and in about two minutes i renegotiated it down to two hours so we can get the hell out of here. >> stephen: whooo! whooo! >> stephen: whooo! trump 2016! z donald, you saved us from another hour and a half of that
12:31 am
debate. you truly are a great leader and you have earned my vote as long as you can negociate your presidency down from four years to, you know, two hours feels about right. (cheers and applause) >> stephen: but it's no surprise things didn't go that smooltly because even before the debate started, the campaigns were complaining to the republican national committee about their green rooms. >> marco rubio green room had a movie theater, donald trumps had some couches and flat screen tvs. >> on the left is carly fiorina green room, it has a jacuzzi, on the right is rand paul's green room that looks like a jail cell. >> rand paul, you are basically getting a closet with a toilet in it >> stephen: a toilet in a closet. well, maybe it wasn't an insult. for instance the rnc mielt have just wanted chris christie to be closer to where his campaign has
12:32 am
gone. (laughter) and and i understand the candidates were upset. but as someone who has a lot of guests on the show i know sometimes it's hard to find equal space. usually your first guest gets the nicest room closest to the stage over here and sometimes you need to reserve your biggest room for the band. and sometimes guests like authors who are great end up in our more humble accommodations. for instance last night we had national book award winner jonathan franzen and he's great. when i stopped by to say i had to him before our show, i found out he's been put in one of our smaller dressing rooms. hey, megan. >> hey. >> with dressing room is jonathan franzen in. >> that would be 11 >> stephen: oh, great. (laughter) mr. franzen, we're almost ready for you. >> thank you. be right out >> stephen: great. hey, did you get the flowers that i sent you?
12:33 am
>> no, i didn't see them >> stephen: they should be over by the makeup mirror. >> oh, yeah, beautiful. i will be right out. just finishing a cigarette here >> stephen: okay, i'll see you on stage. though actually, jonathan, you really shouldn't be smoking in there. >> jesus, i set the curtains on fire. help. >> stephen: oh my god, jonathan, are you okay? i'll be right back. >> help me, help me. help. hello, help. >> stephen: jonathan, back away from the door, get in the corner of your dressing room. i'm going to try to chop you out! that was a close one. that was a-- whooo, whooo! that was a close one. but mr. franzen is fine. we got him out of his dressing room and were able to rush him over to our hospital. we'll be right back with seth macfarlane.

12:40 am
you get a taste for everything and you want more of all of it >> stephen: right. >> like drugs. (laughter) >> stephen: i wouldn't know. i wouldn't know. >> i wouldn't either >> stephen: me either. >> i heard about them >> stephen: now the singing, was it always something for you? because you've got an album coming out here. this is, seth macfarlane. >> is that a 45 >> stephen: it is. seth macfarlane "no one ever tells you." >> do you have the yellow swas particulara that you need to play the plastic things >> stephen: no, no, they don't call it that. a triscalion. >> is that what it is? >> stephen: yeah. >> there is a word for that >> stephen: yeah. ask neil tyson, he will back me up on that. back me up on that one, neil. so why do you want to sing? i know why you want to sing, it is a joyful thing to do but have you always done it? >> yeah, my sister and i did a lot of musical theater when we

tonight tonight tonight, we visit our neighbor mars. okay, sorry, whoops, i overshot it a little bit, let me just back up. and we a arrive at the red planet, mars. name for the ancient roman god of wars favorite candy bar. mars has long been thought of as an arist dusty hellscape where no one would want to live, which why it is off called the tucson of space but an exciting
12:52 am
discovery has been made on mars, box office magic for matt damon. also, nasa scientists recently announced they have found flowing water on mars thanks to the seasonal changes in dark streaks shown here which are known as recurring slope lineae because that sounds so much nicer than planetary stretch marks. so how can there be water on mars? evidence suggests that during the night time the surface of the planet becomes covered with salty puddles. but where do these amazing pools of incredible liquid unbelievably come from? our top puddle ther rests believe that despite temperatures that reach 60 below zero, vapor from march's atmosphere mixes with salt from martian soil to form a liquid brine which means if mars is ever colonized by hipsters the pickles will be amazing.
