Stephen Colbert Announces To Jon Stewart That He ‘Won Television’ and Says Goodbye To His Eponymous Show

Stephen Colbert announced to The Daily Show host Jon Stewart that he is ending is eponymous show because he “won television” and hilariously gave himself a gracious farewell .

This is going to come as a shock to you but I’m ending my show. I have to Jon, don’t beg me to stay. You see there is no mountain left for me to climb. It’s become clear to me that I’ve won television. At this point, Jon, Jon – I’m just running up the score…because you see Jon, almost nine years ago I promised to change the world and together I did it.

Stephen Colbert is slated to replace the retiring David Letterman on the Late Show sometime in 2015.
