The Daily Show with Jon Stewart goes out with Emmy Awards for Outstanding Variety Talk Series and writing awards

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart closed out its 16-year run on Comedy Central with two more big Emmy Award wins on Sunday night, earning the prizes for both writing in a variety series as well as the newly split category for outstanding variety talk series.

Of course, most of the correspondents, writers and producers will remain when the show reboots next Monday with newly promoted host Trevor Noah.

But it was a grand swan song for Stewart, who accepted the prize at the Emmys and joked about his new life away from television.

Earlier in the ceremony, he gleefully watched from the mass of writers onstage as they accepted their award:
