The 5 Best Moments from The Final Daily Show with Jon Stewart
Jon Stewart said his final good bye to The Daily Show viewers following 16 years. 16 years of political jokes and 18 Emmy Awards to prove the love for both Stewart and The Daily Show.
The final good bye couldn’t fit into the normal half hour allotted scheduled time so the show was extended to 51 minutes, leaving a lot of final moments.

Steven Colbert’s Good Bye to Jon Stewart
Colbert was the last correspondent to come out for his final goodbye. Colbert spoke about his friendship with Stewart comparing the relationship to best friends Sam and Frodo from The Lord of the Rings. Colbert then became serious, telling Stewart that while he always told everyone never to thank him, every correspondent whose careers he helped launch owed him “everything,” and were “better people for having known him,” saying Stewart taught everyone who worked with him how to treat people with respect. Stewart did his best to hold back tears during Colbert’s touching tribute but was unsuccessful.
