Jon Stewart was "stunned" to learn about the allegations against fellow comedian and good friend Louis C.K..

During his Today show interview on Tuesday, the former Daily Show host addressed the claims made by multiple women who say the Louie star masturbated in front of them — and looking back, Stewart thinks more could have been done to stop the stand up's perverted "compulsions."

Speaking to Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, the comedian explained:

"You know, you give your friends a benefit of the doubt. I've had friends who've had compulsions and who have done things — gambling or drinking or drugs — and we've lost some of them. Some of them have died. You always find yourself back to a moment of, 'Did I miss something? Could I have done more?' I think we all could have."

The usually quippy 54-year-old was completely somber while speaking on how C.K.'s actions are just one example of how the world of comedy has never been a great environment for women. He continued:

Ah, the summer of ‘05.

Things sure were a lot simpler back then: soul patches and trucker hats were in style, George W. Bush was president, and Jon Stewart's all-star Daily Show team was still in tact.

Thankfully, Stephen Colbert gave us a much needed walk down memory lane on Tuesday's Late Show by reuniting the original Comedy Central news squad!

After an opening bit featuring Stewart and Colbert being ordered around by Trevor Noah, the CBS host drifted off into a star studded flashback to his last day at the Daily Show offices in summer of 2005.

In the sketch, Colbert was joined by fellow correspondents Samantha Bee, Ed Helms, Rob Corddry, and Steve Carell (played by John Oliver, because Carell was unavailable) — who were all fighting over who got Colbert's offices once he left.

Stewart, who was caught in the staff refrigerator emotionally eating their yogurt, then popped out to congratulate his team on "spreading their wings" before they launched their pre-show prayer: "Go liberal agenda!"

Ha! Ch-ch-check it out (below)!

Some fans may feel exhausted with all the Donald Trump coverage on late night TV as of late, but David Letterman thinks today's hosts can go even harder!

In a wide-ranging interview with Vulture, the retired Late Show personality spoke on the "obligation" late night hosts have to criticize politicians, and made it clear he would be handling things differently if he were still in the game.

The comedian specifically took issue with that infamous Tonight Show moment where Jimmy Fallon tousled Trump's hair in an appearance during his presidential campaign.

Though Letterman says Fallon got a "fantastic viral clip" out of the wig check, the 69-year-old would have given Trump a much harder time had he been behind the desk.

Jon Stewart Returns To Stephen Colbert's Late Show To Reveal Donald Trump's Next 3 Ridiculous Executive Orders!

| Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpStephen ColbertFunnyStar WarsLate Night TV

The nation is rapidly changing under the captivity of Donald Trump, who has, as of this writing, signed a whopping 20 executive orders in his first 10 days in office.

Stephen Colbert was overwhelmed by the president's controversial policies on Tuesday's Late Show, and got his old pal Jon Stewart to help poke fun at the political chaos.

In his first late night stint since the inauguration, the former Daily Show host came out dressed as the fashionable POTUS — donning a six-foot long red tie and an actual dead animal clinging to his head.

After some back-to-school banter between the longtime collaborators, Stewart read off three executive orders he claimed Trump was preparing to sign: like tricking Mexico into buying off China's Great Wall and changing the new official U.S. language to "bullshit."

Stewart got a bit more serious with his third faux-executive order, begging to citizens to band together to keep the orange POTUS from turning into a Star Wars villain. We think it's a little too late for that…

Jon Stewart On The ONE Question No One Asked Donald Trump — See The Trusted Fake Newsman's Thoughts On The Election HERE!

No one ever said creating an America for everyone was easy.

But according to Jon Stewart, the idea of a country run by people of different cultures, backgrounds, and histories is "not natural."

The former Daily Show host trimmed his beard to sit down with Charlie Rose and give his rational take on the results of the election.

He said on Thursday's CBS This Morning:

"I don't believe we are a fundamentally different country today than we were two weeks ago. The same country that elected Donald Trump elected Barack Obama. This election, to me is just another extension of the long argument that we've had from our founding, which is: What are we?"

Right now, we are a country with a Donald Trump presidency looming over our heads — an electoral upset the comedian attributes to citizens losing faith in our dysfunctional government.

While Trump's campaign was full of questions — Is he a sexual criminal? Is he fit to lead a country? Are his hands really that small? — Stewart says there's one question the President-elect was NEVER asked. He mused:
