Jon Stewart spent some time under Stephen Colbert's desk with a woman who'd won the opportunity in a charity raffle, and naturally Stewart couldn't sit still.

"You always find yourself back to a moment of, 'Did I miss something? Could I have done more?'"
With so much to watch on TV it can be difficult to plan ahead. But we're here to help! Here are the five shows you won't want to miss this week.
After President Trump tweeted that he was not being fairly represented on late night television, "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" brought in the always fair and balanced Jon Stewart to point out some of the positive things about the Trump administration.
John Oliver made a hilarious movie trailer starring a wax figure of U.S. President Warren G. Harding and several Academy Award nominees.
While savaging Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey and Trump’s health care bill, Colbert and his guests — Jon Stewart, John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Rob Corddry, and Ed Helms — sat around swapping war stories.
On Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert is going to celebrate his 20th year in late-night television, and he plans to turn The Late Show into a reunion of The Daily Show: Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Ed Helms, and Rob Corddry are scheduled to appear. The present-day atmosphere is too grim to allow Colbert to simply hug some old friends and pat himself on the back for surviving (and thriving) for two decades of topical TV.
The man who’s been chosen to host the president-free White House Correspondents’ dinner will have to make his jokes somewhat president-free as well.
The new documentary, airing now on Starz, is a fitting tribute to Klein, once famous for his garrulous observational humor and numerous HBO stand-up specials.
From J.Lo’s embarrassing text to James Corden’s karaoke with Adele, here are 10 of the most viral late night moments, according to YouTube and Facebook numbers, to hit the airwaves (and Internet) in 2016. Watch What Happens Live: Why Was J.Lo Texting During a Mariah Carey Performance? Back in February, WWHL’s Andy Cohen chided Jennifer Lopez for texting and looking rather distracted during the Billboard Music Awards — specifically, during Mariah Carey’s performance.
It's been an extremely long and stressful election season. And it seems the closer we get to Election Day on Nov. 8, the more heated and bizarre things have become for presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. While the country is clearly divided, an overwhelming majority of celebrities (Scott Baio and Stephen Baldwin excluded) have thrown their support behind Clinton. Some have gone as far to say that they will flee America if Trump is elected president.
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is airing live all week long to cover the Republican National Convention. During Monday night’s show, Stephen was having a difficult time explaining how the Republican Party ended up with Donald Trump as their candidate. Stephen had to find his alter ego first, so he went to a cabin in the woods to find his old Daily Show buddy, Jon Stewart.
To the challenge of being TV’s most prominent woman on the late-night landscape, Samantha Bee spent the debut episode of Full Frontal making that challenge irrelevant or glorious—take your pick. Bee’s opening monologue—a stand-up affair, with deft use of illustrative clips—hit at the false humility of Hillary Clinton and moved on to what she called the “banquet of all-you-can-eat-crazy” that was Saturday’s New Hampshire debate. Later, Bee introduced a taped piece in which she did not appear, yet which nevertheless extended her point of view forcefully.
We enter Week 2 of voting for the Yahooies!, Yahoo TV’s awards honoring the best of the 2014-15 TV season (including summer shows), with the Best Late Night Host category.
Stephen Colbert presided genially over CBS’s Television Critics Association press conference in Los Angeles on Monday that served as a preview of what his Late Show will be like when he premieres the new version on Sept 8. More than anything, Colbert is eager to get started. We knew George Clooney would be his first guest; Colbert said Kendrick Lamar would be the first musical guest “I want to do Donald Trump jokes so badly,” he said. “Right now, I’m just dry-Trumping… I hope he takes his vitamins, and stays healthy.
Jon Stewart’s final episode of 'The Daily Show' is sadly now behind us, and he went out with something we’ve gotten used to: Jon throwing to his correspondents.
As Jon Stewart wraps up his run on 'The Daily Show' Thursday night, there’s a lot of mourning for a voice that will vanish from TV when he abandons his post. Unlike David Letterman, about whom it was necessary to feel ambivalent about his sticking around after the thrill was gone, Stewart’s short goodbye tour feels just about right.
President Obama Bids Goodbye to Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show’ President Obama made his seventh appearance on The Daily Show Tuesday night, which was also his final appearance with Jon Stewart at the helm. Obama opened by exclaiming, “I can’t believe you’re leaving before me.“ He then continued on by joking (we wish it wasn’t a joke), "In fact I’m issuing a new executive order that Jon Stewart cannot leave the show.” To which Stewart quickly responded, “I have to say, for me this is a states’ rights issue.” During the interview, the late night show host pressed President Obama on the U.S. nuclear deal with Iran, his achievements during his time in office, and his thoughts on the media. As the show wrapped up, President Obama reflected, “The one thing I know as I enter into the last year of my presidency is that the country is full of good and decent people and there is a sense of common purpose,” adding “If people are engaged, eventually the political system responds despite the money, despite the lobbyists, it still responds.” Then true to form, Jon Stewart brought it all back to his favorite wild card presidential candidate, Donald Trump, asking the president, “Is that the advice you then bequeath to future President Trump?” The Daily Show airs weeknights at 11 p.m. on Comedy Central.
Fulfilling yet another obligation as an outgoing President, Barack Obama paid a ceremonial visit to The Daily Show on Tuesday night, his farewell to another outgoing dignitary, Jon Stewart. “I’m going to issue a new executive order,” said the President. “Jon Stewart cannot leave the show.” Then he added wryly, “It’s being challenged in the courts.” With a tone approaching jealousy, Obama said, “I can’t believe you’re leaving before me.”
New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand stopped by The Daily Show to discuss, among other things, trying to push a 9/11 First Responders bill through an unwilling Congress. With a frustration that turns quickly to something quite resembling rage, Jon Stewart asks her to name names.
