After 16 years, we sadly had to say goodbye to Jon Stewart, who took his last exit from “The Daily Show” Thursday night.
But, Stewart had a lot of friends who wanted to say farewell.
From former correspondents to politicians to “The Boss,” here’s everyone who made an appearance on Stewart’s final night.
Things started with Stewart introducing his current correspondents as they were 'covering' the evening's first Republican presidential debate of the 2016 election.
Larry Wilmore had to show up; his program, 'The Nightly Show,' got bumped because this episode of 'The Daily Show' ran long.
Rob Riggle showed up to protect Stewart from the upcoming video package of politicians, but first ...

During a 'Goodfells'-like single shot through the entire 'Daily Show' production, we found Martin Scorsese.
