Jon Stewart Gives Samantha Bee An Unforgettable 'Daily Show' Sendoff

Break out the tissues because longtime “Daily Show” correspondent Samantha Bee is leaving the show.

On Thursday night, host Jon Stewart gave her a rousing farewell with a montage showing just a few of the many highlights from her 12 years on the program.

Bee, who’s the longest-serving correspondent in “Daily Show” history, wrote via Twitter beforehand:

Tonight a retrospective of my 12(!) years @TheDailyShow. Prediction: my salty tears short circuit the NYC electrical grid: full blackout.

— Samantha Bee (@iamsambee) April 30, 2015

Bee is leaving to work on two projects for TBS. One is a show she will host and executive produce with her husband Jason Jones, who also recently left “The Daily Show.” The couple is developing a scripted series for the network as well.
