http://www.avclub.com/article/jon-stewa ... how-215070 - Well, I guess this day would come. I never knew it would happen now.

I first discovered his show in 2000, when I was but 13...... I will miss him once he leaves. It will feel like a huge void in my life will be left..... we've had some great times together.... he has had a great run, and changed the news world in quite a way, even if it was a satirical news program. Good luck to him in his future endeavors, whatever they may be.

On a personal note, BTW, who do I pick to replace Jon Stewart on The Daily Show? I wholeheartedly endorse Jason Jones and Samantha Bee. Mostly because they add continuity as the show's two longest-serving active correspondents on the show now (Samantha Bee joined in 2003, Jason Jones in 2005), and they are a bona fide couple (they got married in 2001)..... who's with me? I'd love to see this team take over the show.

I think the show is over without Stewart, I know he wasn't the original host but it became synomynous with him. Colbert is leaving as well to replace Letterman, Comedy Central is in bad shape I think. John Oliver on HBO with his Last Week Tonight will carry on the tradition.

^ Yes, it will, if somehow the Daily Show ends. I like John Oliver. :D
