The Daily Show’s Classy Election Coverage

The AP reported that Jon Stewart became “the first comedian to announce the election results on live national television.” Okay, sure! But even if you chose (like most people, no offense to Jon and Stephen) to get your election news from a non-fake news outlet last night, watching Jon and Stephen’s special on DVR later is a treat. After the jump, Jon shows his team the world outside their studio for the first time, and a clip that convinced at least two of my friends that Stephen Colbert cried on air.

The team sees the great outdoors for the first time in years:

Jon announces the winner of the election. Look closely at Stephen. Is he crying?

For those still worried that Jon and Stephen won’t have anything to joke about now, don’t worry: looks like Ted “series of tubes/bridge to nowhere” Stevens got re-elected. Wooo!
