Jon Stewart will end his 16-year run on "The Daily Show" later this year.
The announcement, which seemingly came out of nowhere, was first reportedly made by Stewart at the taping of his show Tuesday.
Comedy Central then posted a thank you note to Stewart on Twitter, which read, in part: "Jon will remain at the helm of The Daily Show until later this year. He is a comic genius, generous with his time and talent, and will always be a part of the Comedy Central family."
