Watch ‘Stephen Colbert’ Tell Jon Stewart He’s Leaving His Show

Considering his endorsement the morning of the day it was announced that Stephen Colbert will be taking over The Late Show, we're sure Stephen Colbert told Jon Stewart that he was leaving The Colbert Report. But "Stephen Colbert," the character, hadn't yet. Last night, he interrupted The Daily Show to break the news to Stewart (who produces Colbert), play a tribute clip to himself, and call himself fat. It was all very moving. Everyone cried. (No one cried.)
