Blago on The Daily Show Tonight

By Amy Hart in Arts & Entertainment on Feb 9, 2006 3:08PM


Governor Blagojevich will appear in a segment about emergency contraception on The Daily Show tonight.

The segment was originally scheduled to run on Tuesday night. So if you stayed up past your bedtime to watch earlier this week, don't blame us.

Last year Blago signed a bill requiring pharmacists to fill prescriptions for emergency contraception even if they feel doing so goes against the beliefs. The bill angered several pharmacists, including State Representative Ron Stephens, who will also be featured in tonight’s segment.

Unfortunately, Pat Robertson will not be included in the piece on tonight’s show.

The Daily Show airs at 10 PM central time on Comedy Central, and re-airs tomorrow at midnight, 9 AM, 1 PM, and 7 PM.
