Stewart's last show was a loose and satisfyingly sentimental hour.
January 31, 2019
The host of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" used his last turn behind the desk to make the program a daily show about all the people who put the program together... In doing so, Stewart flipped another format on its ear.

There won't be another Jon Stewart, just like there never has been another Johnny Carson. Here's Johnny? Here's Jonny.
January 31, 2019
Managed to feel both breezy and momentous, like Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics as read aloud by a horn-tooting birthday clown.
January 31, 2019
Once just a comedian, [Jon Stewart] has become a moral authority.
January 31, 2019
Stewart held our leaders and various institutions accountable, often saying the things that media types couldn't or wouldn't say. And there was a creative brilliance in the delivery.
January 31, 2019
Filled with equal measures of heart, humour, gratitude, genuine emotion and what was most assuredly the best musical play-off any entertainer has ever enjoyed.
January 31, 2019
While it was a bit of a slog, Stewart's last Daily Show, in a way, was a stark forecast of the void he will leave behind now that he's officially departed. The segments were undoubtedly a touching tribute for those involved.
January 31, 2019
My calling constant bullshit on politicians on both sides of the aisle, and the irresponsible "get there first" reporting of news outlets, Stewart trained us to be media and political watchdogs -- and the world is a better place because of him.
January 31, 2019
The Daily Show hasn't really covered any new ground in its interview segments -- they've just allowed Jon Stewart to spend a few more on-TV minutes with some of his favorite guests. And he's earned that, certainly, so enjoy as he indulges.
January 31, 2019
It is a personal legacy and contribution to political conversation that very few other individuals can hope to match, and one that we should be grateful for.
January 31, 2019
After more than 16 years of holding up a fun house mirror to America's foibles, Stewart's final show was generous with its thanks.
January 30, 2019
He laughed, he cried, he spoke from the heart. And at the end, instead of offering us our moment of Zen, he offered us his moment of Zen -- Bruce Springsteen, as it turns out
January 30, 2019
We've been through good times and a lot of bad times that he made better. Through it all, Jon Stewart was the cool punk rock uncle who evolved into the authoritative father figure who yelled at us because he cared, and we cared back.
January 30, 2019
Stewart didn't just respect the intelligence of his audience; he saw it as an asset that he could leverage for deeper, funnier jokes.
January 30, 2019
Generosity is a good way to close a great run. It's an even better way to close out the run with Bruce Springsteen by your side. It was sweet 16 indeed. And pretty darned near perfect, too.
January 30, 2019
While his last show may have lacked the outright lunacy of Comedy Central stablemate Stephen Colbert's finale in December, it brimmed with generosity and gratitude, both to and from Stewart.

America -- and with a host of Daily Show imitators, the rest of the world -- is smarter, wiser and more nutritiously entertained in 2015 than it was in 1999.
January 29, 2019
[Jon Stewart] leaves the television neighbourhood a better place than when he found it. Thank you, and goodnight.
January 29, 2019
There have been some great advancements in the last decade and a half. The Daily Show exulted in them, too. Mostly, though, Stewart made the miserable bearable. But it's finally too much for him to stay.
