Six weeks after being convicted of tax fraud, controversial former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi announces his intention to seek reelection. (5:23)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Jon: THANK YOU.

THESE TIES ARE VERY IN.

(LAUGHTER) WINK!

WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW.

LET'S TURN OUR FOCUS TO EUROPE.

REMEMBER THIS FELLA HERE OVER MY SHOULDER THERE?

SILVIO BERLUSCONI.

A BILLIONAIRE PRIME MINISTER OF ITALY ELECTED THREE TIMES EVEN THOUGH AS THEY SAY IN ROME, HE

WAS CORRUPT.

>> THE ITALIAN PRIME MINISTER IS NO STRANGER TO SCANDAL.

CHARGES OF BRIBERY, CORRUPTION AND EMBEZZLEMENT.

>> OFFICIALLY GUILTY OF TAX FRAUD.

>> SENTENCED TO NEWSHOUR YEARS IN PRISON FOR TAX FRAUD.

>> A SERIAL FLANDERER.

>> TALES OF LAVISH ORGIES.

>> NOTORIOUS ALL NIGHT SO-CALLED BUNGA-BUNGA PARTIES.

PAYING FOR SEX WITH AN UNDERAGE PROSTITUTE.

>> HE WAS SAYING HE COULD HAVEN'T SEX WITH 11 WOMEN SO INSTEAD HE HAD SEX WITH EIGHT WOMEN.

(LAUGHTER).

>> Jon: A MAN WHO HAD SEX WITH EIGHT WOMEN.

THAT'S THE WORST BOND VILLAIN EVER!

(LAUGHTER) AND IF YOU PULL ONE OF THEM OFF, YOU JUST GROW BACK.

LAST NOVEMBER WITH THE ITALIAN ECONOMY TANKING, VOTERS REPLACED BERLUSCONI WITH HIS POLAR

OPPOSITE, MARIO MONTI, AN ACADEMIC ECONOMIST WHO PROMISED TO BALANCE ITALY'S BOOKS WITH

STRICT AUSTERITY MEASURES.

THAT'S NOT AN EASY CHOICE.

THE COUNTRY BASICALLY DECIDING IT WOULD BE BETTER TO LIVE WITH ITS HARD-ASS STEPFATHER EVEN

THOUGH ITS REAL FATHER WAS OUTSIDE REVVING UP HIS ALFA ROMEO PROMISING TO TAKE EVERYONE

TO A STRIP CLUB FOR PROSECCO AND WAFFLES.

(LAUGHTER) OR WHATEVER BETTER VERSION OF WAFFLES THEY HAVE IN ITALY.

I'M SURE.

REALLY?

HIS ZELLS IS THAT WHAT THEY DO?

(LAUGHTER) LOOK AT THAT GRILL PATTERN.

IT'S (BLEEP)ING BEAUTIFUL.

HOW DO THEY DO IT?

EVERYTHING YOU EAT IS BETTER THERE.

KOSHER HOT DOGS.

THEY PROBABLY HAVE SOME KIND OF THING THAT GETS SAYSLY AND BLUB BLUB.

ANYWAY, ITALY SUCKED IT UP AND GOT THE FISCAL HOUSE IN BETTER SHAPE, EVERYONE'S GLAD THEY DID

WHAT THEY DID.

ALMOST EVERYONE.

>> ONE OF ITALY'S MOST CONTROVERSIAL FORMER LEADERS IS EYEING A COMEBACK.

BERLUSCONI SAYS HE'S PLANNING TO RUN AGAIN.

THIS WOULD BE HIS FOURTH TERM IN OFFICE.

>> Jon: HE WAS CONVICTED -- (LAUGHTER).

HE WAS CONVICTED OF TAX FRAUD SIX WEEKS AGO.

HE WAS SENTENCED TO NEWSHOUR YEARS.

NOW I UNDERSTAND HE'S APPEALING THE SENTENCE AND THAT WITH TIME OFF FOR AT LEAST GOOD BEHAVIOR

HE COULD BE OUT IN LET'S SAY TWO YEARS.

WHO IS GOING TO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY?

>> MONTI ANNOUNCING HE'LL STEP DOWN BEFORE HIS TERM ENDS.

THE DECISION COMES AFTER THE PARTY OF FORMER PRIME MINISTER SILVIO BERLUSCONI WITHDREW ITS

SUPPORT FOR MONTI'S GOVERNMENT LAST WEEK.

>> Jon: HOLY (BLEEP).

(LAUGHTER) HOW DOES THIS GUY DO THAT?

ITALY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

BERLUSCONI DOESN'T EVEN WANT THIS.

>> SPEAKING TO REPORTERS AT A FOOTBALL MATCH HE SOUNDED ALMOST RELUCTANT.

"I'M RETURNING SADLY TO PUBLIC SERVICE." (LAUGHTER) "AGAIN, I'M DOING IT OUT OF A

SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY." (LAUGHTER) STPHAOUD IF YOU HAD A SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY YOU WOULD HAVE

STOPPED AT THE SEVENTH GIRL!

YOU WENT EIGHT!

WHEN HAS BERLUSCONI EVER DISPLAYED A SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY?

HIS FAMILY CREST IS A GUY (BLEEP)ING IN A SWIMMING POOL!

(LAUGHTER).

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) CONGRATULATIONS TO THE GRAPHICS TEAM ON THAT ONE.

(LAUGHTER) THEY'VE OUTDONE THEMSELVES.

MAYBE YOU DON'T WANT MONTI, FINE.

BUT DOES THAT MEAN BERLUSCONI HAS TO TAKE OVER?

DON'T OFF FOOTBALL STAR?

THAT GUY COULD BE IT.

ROBERTO BENIGNI, HE'S SO FUN.

MARIO!

SUCH A GOOD DRIVER!

IL DIVO, THERE'S FOUR OF THEM!

THEY COULD SPLIT IT UP, FOR GOD'S SAKES.

THIS GUY IS UNBELIEVABLE.

HE HAS TAKEN WHAT NORMALLY WOULD BE ENOUGH OIL YEE GOTISM TO GET HIM TO RUN FOR OFFICE MAYBE ONCE

AND TURNED THAT INTO ENOUGH OIL YEE GOTISM FOR FOUR SEPARATE CAMPAIGNS.

WHAT'S THE OPPOSITE OF A CHANUKAH MIRACLE?

THAT'S WHAT HE'S DONE.

HOW DOES HE WIN?

HE'S GOT A IT WILL SOMETHING UP HIS SLEEVE.

>> FORMER ITALIAN PRIME MINISTER SILVIO BERLUSCONI, THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING RELEASED AN

ALBUM OF LOVE SONGS TODAY.
