Stewart explains why he is leaving The Daily Show:
It’s not like I thought the show wasn’t working any more, or that I didn’t know how to do it. It was more, Yup, it’s working. But I’m not getting the same satisfaction…Honestly, it was a combination of the limitations of my brain and a format that is geared towards following an increasingly redundant process, which is our political process. Another plus of leaving? Not having to watch the news to keep up: Watching these channels all day is incredibly depressing.
