Jon Stewart is Leaving 'The Daily Show' Later this Year, Fox News Rejoices

The man. The myth. The legend. Those three words more or less describe Jon Stewart and all that he's done for basic cable news. It was announced today that The Daily Show will soon lose its with Jon Stewart later this year.

Comedy Central tweeted a statement earlier tonight about announcing Stewart's departure. They praised the "comedic brilliance" that Stewart displays referring that ability as second to none. There's no word yet on who will take his place mostly because this literally just happened. Perhaps, if this was a few months ago, John Oliver could have taken the job but he's pretty comfy where he is now.
