Well, you may remember where you were when you heard the news. Yes, Jon Stewart announced at today’s taping of The Daily Show that he is officially stepping down from the late night desk after hosting the Comedy Central program for 16 years. People who were at the taping posted the news on social media:
It’s a sad day, indeed. I assume he was offered Fallon, Ferguson & Letterman‘s spots first and doesn’t want to do a chat show… the roster is full now, but I’ll bet he can write his own ticket. (His annual salary is $25-30 million, btw…) Wonder what’s next for him?
