Stephen Colbert hosted MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on his show this week, in a very funny segment. She is the hottest new host on television and immediately started being competitive with her; at one point asking her, "How many Peabodys do you have?"
He then gave her some patented Bill O'Reilly advice, very funny.
As for Rachel, she came in more as the Air America version over the more corporate MSNBC version. She was in sneakers and thick glasses, and was typically self-effacing - especially when Colbert brought up her pal and MSNBC mentor, Keith Olbermann, whom she called the "King of Cable," and also confirmed that he is not, in fact, a chicken.
She went toe to toe and brought up some good points.
