Jon Stewart Will Miss Lou Dobbs, But He Can See Him Monday On O’Reilly

stewart_11-13Jon Stewart said his goodbye to Lou Dobbs last night on The Daily Show, but he won’t have to wait too long to see him back on cable news.

Dobbs will be on The O’Reilly Factor Monday night.

After playing part of the video of Dobbs addressing his viewers about his CNN exit, Stewart decided on a parallel. “Lou Dobbs is going Palin, he’s going rogue!,” he said. “Lou Dobbs is saying the problems we are facing are too important for me, Lou Dobbs, to stay at my job.”

Stewart joked about why Dobbs needing a platform for his views, since he already has an hour-long show each night on CNN. Of course, that very well could be the reason he left – CNN doesn’t want Dobbs espousing his opinions on the air, they want him to do a news program. (I know, I know, Stewart’s a comedian.)

Stewart wished Dobbs “buena suerte” in the future, but we know one of those future plans already. Daily Finance is reporting Dobbs will stop by Fox News for an interview with Bill O’Reilly on Monday night. This summer, Dobbs tried to do just that – but the interview got vetoed by CNN. Now that he’s free from the network, he’s not wasting any time to get on the top rated cable news show.

• Stewart also weighed in on Sean Hannity’s apology.
