‘I’ve Won Television’: Colbert Triumphantly Announces Departure to Jon Stewart

Stephen Colbert crashed the set of his old Daily Show stomping grounds to make a big announcement: The Colbert Report is ending. Colbert remained in character as he cracked up Jon Stewart about his legacy and some fat guy who’s replacing David Letterman next year…

Colbert defiantly declared he’s ending his show because “it’s become clear to me that I’ve won television.” He bragged about being a free man, able to roam the wild with traveling companions, including a prostitute for some reason.

Colbert said he invaded The Daily Show to get a farewell montage of his own (since most other Daily Show correspondents got ones before leaving). They ran clip after clip of classic Colbert moments from when he was a correspondent, and remarked at the end, “I’m really gonna miss me.”
