Our Favorite Reactions to Jon Stewart's Final Monologue

On Thursday, John Stewart signed off on "The Daily Show" for the last time after a 16-year run with the show.

Comedians such as Ed Helms, Steven Colbert and Steve Carell, who got their start on the popular late-night show, were in attendance.

"Nothing ends, it's just a continuation, it's a pause in the conversation," Stewart said in his emotional final monologue. "Rather than saying goodbye or goodnight, I'm just going to say I'm gonna go get a drink and I'm sure I'll see you guys before I leave.”

Stewart has been called the "feminist champion of late night comedy."
