The film -- which sees Kazakhstani television journalist Borat Sagdiyev traveling from his home in Kazakhstan to the "U.S. and A" to report on the "greatest country in the world" -- arrived amidst a major promotional schedule, including Sagdiyev appearances on CBS's "The Late Show with David Letterman," Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and NBC's "Saturday Night Live," "Today," and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" (which was highlighted by Borat's first nationally televised musical performance of "You Be My Wife").
