Jon Stewart joined Matt Lauer during the November 14 edition of “TODAY” to promote his upcoming HBO comedy event “Night of Too Many Stars,” and the comedian took some time during the interview to address Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct. Stewart says he became aware of the rumors surrounding C.K.’s behavior only a year ago when an audience member asked him about the rumors during a live taping of a podcast. Although Stewart took the rumors seriously, he was also willing to give a good friend like C.K. the “benefit of the doubt.”
