But it also proved that it never quite works when Stewart appears on Colbert's show.
"I'm not comfortable. I don't feel comfortable".
Stewart's legacy can be felt strongly in the direction Colbert has taken The Late Show since Donald Trump's inauguration.
"That I do, but might I say", Colbert quipped back, "I learned it from you, Dad". "How could you call in someone who works for you and say, 'This sexual harassment stuff, and the money we're paying out, it's got to stop, ' when you're paying out money for sexual harassment?" The whole thing is really more "fireside chat" than "rousing political discourse between half a dozen political powerhouses", as it's friendly, familiar, and nice, but not almost as cutting or as deep as late night as a whole has been getting recently-nor any of the shows Bee, Oliver, and Colbert now host.
Stephen Colbert is still resurfacing from last week's pile-on over a sexually charged "Late Show" insult about President Trump's relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Like, it's the difference between insult and injury".
He added that he is enjoying retirement, but some political moments have made him miss addressing the world.
Numerous other former "Daily Show" stars also have moved on to fruitful careers. "But the things that I've gained in terms of time spent with family and things like that, I wouldn't give up".

When Kapil Mishra posted a letter on Twitter addressed to Delhi ACB Chief M.K. He joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in mid 2014. "Nobody will believe it".
Stephen Colbert staged an epic Daily Show reunion on Tuesday's Late Show, welcoming Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Rob Corddry, and Ed Helms to the Ed Sullivan Theater in NY.
"This really does look like a group of students coming back to see Mr. Holland at the end. He can injure", said Stewart, referring to the president.
Watching "The Daily Show" was fun, but putting content together for each episode was often miserable because correspondents had to hang out with terrible people for extended periods of time. "So I miss that, and I miss the people like you and all the great people that were around it". I mean, this guy does something ridiculous, like, least once a month! "Where are y'all from?'" He directed some Klan members to talk to his female producer.
Days before he was dismissed, Comey asked for more resources from the Justice Department to pursue the investigation into Russia's election meddling and the possible involvement of Trump associates. "Basically he's sending a small mouse into a lion's den!"
Samantha Bee, who plays one of Colbert's colleagues in the sketch, walks into the office kitchen while Colbert packs up his belongings, including his "lucky mug", his "lucky box of free printer cartridges" and a not-so-sleek "tangerine iBook". "That was my second field piece.We were doing Comedy Central station ID's at the time on our shoots". Somehow the air between them goes flat.
