Watch: Jon Stewart Telling Daily Show Audience It’s Not Them, It’s Him

Stewart wasn’t specific on the details, such when he’s leaving and who would replace him.

On the Tuesday edition of “The Daily Show, ” Jon Stewart said he’s leaving, ending his 17-year run as fake news anchor.

“This show doesn’t deserve an even slightly restless host and neither do you, ” he said. See, that’s the part where he argued we’re better off without him, because he’s, like, you know, restless.

Stewart wasn’t specific on the details, such when he’s leaving and who would replace him.

“In my heart I know it is time for someone else to have [this] opportunity, ” he said. Then he mentioned the restlessness, then he continued: “I don’t think I’m going to miss being on television every day, but I’m going to miss coming here every day… It’s been an absolute privilege. The home of my professional life. And I thank you for watching it, or hate-watching it – whatever reason you were tuning in for.”

I happened to be watching, back in 1999, when Stewart took the show from its original host, Craig Kilborn, who was moving on to bigger things on CBS (yeah, right). Kilborn had a bunch of games he’d play with his guests, like answering 5 absurd questions — the kind of stuff Craig Ferguson would do on Late-Late-Late. And Stewart, at some point, told him he was doing away with all of those, except one silly feature he chose to keep — Your Moment of Zen.

It was on that one that I realized Stewart was coming in ready, and that something brand new was about to happen. And it did.

Good bye, Mr. Stewart, and thank you for all the fish.
