For the past 16 years he’s manned the helm at “The Daily Show” and Jon Stewart has opened up about his reason for handing off the baton at this point in the game.

The “Big Daddy” stud told The Guardian, “It’s not like I thought the show wasn’t working any more, or that I didn’t know how to do it. It was more, ‘Yup, it’s working. But I’m not getting the same satisfaction.’ These things are cyclical. You have moments of dissatisfaction, and then you come out of it and it’s OK. But the cycles become longer and maybe more entrenched, and that’s when you realize, ‘OK, I’m on the back side of it now.’”
