Stephen Colbert poses with the award for Outstanding Variety Series for "The Colbert Report" at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. Jon Stewart's 16-year-long run as host of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," has helped launch comedy careers. Colbert left the show to launch his own companion show, which he hosted for a decade. Then, in late 2014, he exited Comedy Central for CBS, where in September he will step into the late-night time “Late Show” slot long occupied by David Letterman.
