Twitter Reacts to News That Jon Stewart Is Leaving The Daily Show


It’s official. Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show later this year after spending sixteen years as host of the iconic Comedy Central show.

Stewart made the announcement to The Daily Show audience during Tuesday’s taping and word quickly spread through social media before Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless could get out her official statement praising Stewart’s “comedic brilliance.”

Here is a running list of what media figures and comedians are saying on Twitter (with plenty of Brian Williams jokes):
