Andrea MitchellAndrea Mitchell stunned viewers Wednesday when she announced live on-air that she has breast cancer.

Mitchell, who is NBC's chief foreign affairs correspondent, revealed the news at the end of her MSNBC show, 'Andrea Mitchell Reports.'

"And now a personal note, or how I spent my summer vacation: I had planned to be hiking in Wyoming last week," Mitchell said, "but instead discovered that I am now among the one in eight women in this country -- incredibly, one in eight -- who've had breast cancer."

Fortunately, said Mitchell, the cancer has been caught at an early stage. "Mine was discovered during my annual screening just a short time ago. Luckily for me, I'm one of the fortunate ones. We discovered it in the earliest stage, it had not spread, and I'm already back at work with a terrific prognosis."

Alan GreenspanFirst of all, a big congratulations to Jon and the whole Daily Show family for their sweet Emmy victory. Secondly, OJ is back, and this time, it's not about a potential book deal. Yeah. Did you just get chills? I know I did.

"That's Al Folks!": FINALLY, some coverage on Alberto Gonazles' resignation. I'm surprised that the program decided to wait so long before covering this news. It's not as if they had some sort of full-episode extravaganza planned for the news (like they did for the Senator Larry Craig scandal). Then again, the awkward Johnny Sutton clip made the wait totally worth it.

TDSThe Daily Show decided to give Alan Greenspan a great send-off so they started up the "Irrationally Exuberant Tribute to Alan Greenspan". Yes, ladies and gentlemen and you two hardcore Greenspan fans, TDS had a full episode dedicated to Greenspan (except for the Charles Barkley interview). Jon expressed his love for Greenspan and his manly features ("I would totally do that guy!") and filled us in on the basics (Age: 79; Sign: Pisces; Porn name: Chad Lexington; Drag queen name: Buttons Manhattan; Jewiness Per Square Inch level of 59). Throughout the rest of the episode, correspondents joined in with their favorite Greenspan stories (Rob Corddry took Greenspan's idea once and dumped a girl he really liked, only to find Greenspan and the same woman having sex later).
