We’re Gonna Miss You, Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart says goodbye to the Daily Show tonight. The way I see it, if Donald Trump gets elected president, it will be Stewart’s fault (just kidding!).

On the other hand, if Trump becomes president, I’d bet Stewart will regret leaving the Daily Show. It is not often one receives a gold mine like that.

Meanwhile, there is an interesting article in The Hollywood Reporter by Bill Carter, titled “How Jon Stewart Changed Media (and Made Megyn Kelly Cry)“.

And Entertainment Weekly has a funny interview with Stephen Colbert talking about Jon Stewart and the first time they met. Colbert is hoping that Stewart says “just kidding” and stays at the show.

    I’m pretty sure that picking today for the Republican debate was based on the fact that tonight is Stewart,s last show. It was the earliest date they could have without him skewering them afterwards. Imagine the fun he, and we, could have had with that.

    John Oliver, one of his protégées, will no doubt deliver a shot or two on his HBO show, and then some. But yeah, it’s not Stewart.

    I love John Oliver but I, and many others, don’t have HBO.

    Will the male chauvinist vote be enough to elect Trumpy President? Just saying. Or will he run on a third party and pull the male chauvinist vote from the Republicans? The Democrat won’t even have to run, it would be a shoe in.
