Apparently, Jon let the cat out of the bag during a taping of the show on Tuesday as he announced to his audience that he'd be retiring as host of the program.

Here's what Michele Ganeless, President of Comedy Central, had to say about his departure:

"For the better part of the last two decades, I have had the incredible honor and privilege of working with Jon Stewart. His comedic brilliance is second to none. Jon has been at the heart of Comedy Central, championing and nurturing the best talent in the industry, in front of and behind the camera. Through his unique voice and vision, ‘The Daily Show' has become a cultural touchstone for millions of fans and an unparalleled platform for political comedy that will endure for years to come. Jon will remain at the helm of ‘The Daily Show' until later this year," she wrote. "He is a comic genius, generous with his time and talent, and will always be a part of the Comedy Central family."

We wish Jon the best in whatever endeavor he chooses after he exits the venerable late night program, which he helped molded into one of the best sources of comedy and news available.
