Watch Jon Stewart Join Larry Wilmore for Final Nightly Show Episode: ‘Do Not Confuse Cancellation With Failure’

Thursday night was the final episode of Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show, and it wouldn’t be a proper send-off without Jon Stewart there to steal his champagne, and of course, offer some advice. At first, Stewart joked, “Your last show? Oh my God, what, did you piss off Peter Thiel?” in a nod to the recent Gawker lawsuit. But then Stewart reminded Wilmore: “Do not confuse cancellation with failure … You started a conversation that was not on television when you began, and you worked with a group of people who you invited to that conversation to collaborate with you, to sharpen that conversation,” adding, “and what you don’t realize is that when you walk out of here, that conversation doesn’t end.” So, let’s keep the conversation going. Wilmore will be missed.
