Jon Stewart announced that he will be leaving The Daily Show on Tuesday night's episode.
In the final segment of the show, Jon addressed the issue, which leaked to media before Comedy Central released a statement to confirm the news.
He said, on the show, that his last day would be sometime later this year. He continued, “Seventeen years is the longest in my life I’ve ever held a job by 16 years and five months. The upshot there being I’m a terrible employee.”
No word yet on who will replace him -- who would you like to see in his chair?
