According to reports on social media (via The AV Club) from people in the audience at the taping of his latest episode, Jon Stewart has announced he'll be leaving The Daily Show.


UPDATE: Comedy Central has since confirmed the news. He'll be stepping down "later this year".


Stewart has been hosting the show since 1999, so the dude has earned himself a nice vacation and a shot at whatever the hell he wants to do next.

I'm sad if this is true, but I guess we can't expect him to host this show until he's dead.

Now cancel Nightly Show and give Daily show to Larry Wilmore.
