Jon Stewart Is Leaving The Daily Show
Jon Stewart, the most potent American satirist of his generation, is leaving his longtime post at the Daily Show according to people who were at today's taping, and now confirmed by Comedy Central.
The AV Club reports that Stewart, 52, said today that he was stepping down. There's no info yet on why, or what this means for the future of the show, but Comedy Central says Stewart will be out sometime between now and the end of the year. One tweeter who says he was there reports:
Stewart started hosting the show in 1999, taking over for Craig Kilborn. Stewart took what was once an Onion-esque play on local news and elevated it to an indispensable source of satire and commentary on American life. In the process, he battered the Bush administration, wiped CNN's Crossfire talk show off the air, and provided a springboard for several comedy icons, including Steve Carell, Ed Helms and Stephen Colbert.
