Though Jon Stewart left the airwaves after his final “Daily Show” episode on August 6th of last year, he didn’t exactly abandon television nor the numerous alums from his show who have gone on to host their own programs. Case in point: Stewart made a cameo appearance on last night’s “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.” Bee worked as a “Daily Show” correspondent from 2003 to April of 2015, so it’s been over a year since the two were on screen together, and while the cameo is brief, it’s a sweet, funny gesture. In the clip, Bee asks Stewart for advice, but not about covering the news or how to run “Full Frontal,” and instead what to do with the small horse in her office. “Can you take him to your massage farm?” she asks Stewart, referring to his family’s animal rescue farm. When Bee leaves, Stewart says to the horse, “Let me ask you a question: You’re white. Are you voting for Trump?” Watch his cameo above.
“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” premiered in February of this year to widespread critical acclaim, with many saying that Bee’s presence filled the void after Stewart’s departure from late night. Meanwhile, Stewart has a deal to produce programming for HBO, so it may not be long before he returns to television as well.
“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” airs Monday nights at 10:30pm Eastern only on TBS.
