Jon Stewart reacted to the news that Stephen Colbert will take over the “Late Show” from David Letterman on Thursday’s “The Daily Show.”


The host also paid tribute to Colbert by showing a few of his best moments as a past correspondent on “The Daily Show.”

Stewart shared, “Truly one of great pleasures of doing this show has been trying to maintain professional composure while Mr. Colbert is making me laugh uncontrollably.”

He added, “The exciting news today is I no longer need a cable subscription for the privilege of watching Stephen Colbert. Our good friend Stephen Colbert will be heading to CBS to take over ‘The Late Show’ from – for at least me – the comedian broadcaster who is the best there ever was, David Letterman.”

Stewart went on to say of Colbert, “There’s no greater joy for seeing a genuinely good man, who works as hard as he can every day and deserves all the success in the world, actually get that success. For Stephen we’re just thrilled.”
