Jon Stewart returns to TV to rip apart Donald Trump and the RNC

We've missed you, Stewart.

You didn’t think that Jon Stewart would only appear alongside Stephen Colbert on The Late Show just once this week, did you?

After his cameo on Monday night’s episode to help resurrect the “Stephen Colbert” character—they’re living together now, which is really nice—Stewart returned to true form for an old-fashioned bout of evisceration. He’s probably seen just how little of an effect late-night political comedy has had since he left (and probably even while he still ruled The Daily Show during Donald Trump’s first months on the campaign trail), so he came out anyway, took over Colbert’s desk, and and took down some of his favorite punching bags. It’s as satisfying as ever for longtime Daily Show fans as you’d expect.

The Daily Show lives on without Stewart and a few late-night hosts have since taken up Stewart’s mantle on their own shows, but there’s nothing like the original.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert join forces for RNC coverage
It’s been almost a year since Jon Stewart left the Daily Show, and America still hasn’t recovered. And The Late Show With Stephen Colbert gives us our Colbert fix, but it’s just not the same as it was on Comedy Central. Could Monday night's show take us back to those heady days of late 2014?
