Can't wait to see what he does next. Betting it'll be great.

I agree


Jon is an animal rights activist, and from what I've read, at least for a while, he will be investing a great deal of time and $$ on that cause.

I'll miss this show VERY much.  Jon is smart (massively intelligent, which I love) and funny.  

 

I picked out a few of the rerun episodes they're running today.  One that caught my eye was S01, E01, with Michael J Fox as the guest.   

 

I only found the show about 10 years ago so I missed quite a lot.  

 

He's a good man who does good things in the world.  I just watched the recent ep with POTUS and really enjoyed that one, too.

I know, the next presidential election won't be the same without him!

 

A few months back - before he announced he was leaving- I had tickets for his show but cancelled them since David Letterman tickets [a very tough find at the time] came through.  I was going to request new tickets- but the wait from one line to the next - and an eventual  seat in the studio takes hours literally. For a 1/2 hr show!   I'd much rather see Jon Stewart in a  two++ hour  setting in the future!!  Love everything  about the guy!!

I caught a few of JS's old shows before the finale last night. I realized just what an important role he played in our culture. Jon never suffered fools gladly. He pointed out hypocrisy in many areas...politics, obviously, but also in other areas of American life. He did it with intelligence and humor. I watched him skewer that Kramer guy from CNBC for being part of the mess and exploitation by Wall Street in the recession...right to his face...and got an apology and a handshake at the end. He pointed out the short sightedness of politicians whose videos clearly revealed their self-contradictory statements. Some of his guests were intellectuals whom Stewart engaged in such a way as to make their complicated but important thoughts understandable, again through humor. 

 

Watching those old shows one after another, I was struck by just how important Stewart has been. Nobody can replace him. Yes, John Oliver's show is great but he's only on once a week on HBO. Stewart reached so many people in such a unique way. I will really miss him.

How great would it have been to hear Jon's take on the debates yesterday?  I know he's probably burned out and is already doing great things on the farm he is running but I will truly miss him during this election cycle.  Heart
