Video Licks: Jon Stewart’s ‘Daily Show’ Announcement is a Doozy

Yep, the big matzo ball finally dropped. Jon Stewart announced yesterday that he would indeed be leaving his anchor position at The Daily Show sometime this year. The fake news vet had no details on when exactly he would make his exit but he did indicate he’d be spending more time with his family. Jon had taken off some time last summer to attend to his directing aspirations, so, perhaps we’ll be seeing a lot more of him behind the camera in the future. Now we get to enjoy months of speculation about who will be taking over his spot. I wonder if they’ll be trying out many individuals live like CBS has done with the Late Late Show. Only time will tell!

Mentions: Watch The Daily Show while you can weeknights 11/10 on Comedy Central.
