The end of an era is nigh.
Jon Stewart reportedly revealed his impending retirement from late-night satire staple “The Daily Show” during Tuesday’s taping in New York, leaving millions of Americans wondering who they can trust to mock their news cycle once he’s gone. While it remains unknown exactly when Stewart will step down or who will take his place, Comedy Central confirmed his departure in a statement released on Twitter:

Per the network’s announcement, fans can at least take comfort in knowing Stewart will remain at the “Daily Show” desk until “later this year,” but the celebrated comedian is undoubtedly leaving a very big chair to fill.
