Show time is 7 PM. In Mo Rocca 'Cross America, press notes state, "humorist and actor Mo Rocca pays tribute to the specialness of our states. It's an evening of fun, factoids, prize giveaways and song, as MO'S friends sing about their home states. 'Country Roads, Take Me Home' to ... 'California, Here I Come, Right Back' ...'Home Again in Indiana'! As any singer can tell you, a nation is only as strong as its weakest state."
