Stephen Colbert goes off script, brings Jon Stewart to tears with heartfelt thank you

this was nice

For The Win

Jon Stewart walked away from The Daily Show on Thursday night, ending his 16-and-a-half-year run as the show’s host.

In his goodbye show he had a lot of old friends and former colleagues come on the show. The best appearance came from Stephen Colbert, his old correspondent and former host of The Colbert Report, who went off script before a commercial and, while Stewart visibly squirmed, told him how much he meant to everyone with whom he worked.

It’s funny to see Stewart fight back, physically, as he can’t contain himself. It was a glorious hour of TV, and this was its best moment.
