On Monday, I mentioned that Jon Stewart was dedicating this week’s shows to evolution. What I didn’t know at the time (but found out at 11:20 p.m.) was that Chris Mooney was that night’s guest. We love Chris Mooney! We love Jon Stewart! What a combination.

Earlier, on his blog, Chris had described the upcoming interview — part of his book tour — as a “biggie.” But the only sign of nervousness was that he couldn’t quite decide what to do with his hands. (Frankly, if I were in the hot seat, I’d probably forget how to speak.) He did well, and even slipped in two (count them!) mentions of global warming. Now that’s entertainment.
