Jon Stewart said an emotional goodbye on Thursday, after 16 years on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" that established him as America's foremost satirist of politicians and the media.
Those who scored a ticket to the 6 p.m. taping said they were sworn to secrecy about the details of Stewart's final show, which brought together "Daily Show" alumni and staff. Stephen Colbert was there. Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band played a set.
