The Daily Show returned from its hiatus on Monday, and Stewart, 52, made it clear that he's standing by his man.
Acknowledging the Twitter "kerfuffle," Stewart said, "without hesitation," that Noah "will earn your trust and respect ... Or not. Just as I earned your trust and respect ... Or did not," he joked. "Or sometimes earned it and then lost it and then kind of got it back and then it was like, 'F--- that guy!' "

Well, that didn't take long.
Within 24 hours of the announcement that he would replace Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah is already facing controversy.
Now that he's in the spotlight, Twitter users have been going through his feed with a fine-tooth comb – and were generally not thrilled with what they found.
For example, one Tweet from January 2012 reads, "Behind every successful rap billionaire is a double as rich Jewish man. #BeatsByDreidel."

Jessica Williams may not be taking over Jon Stewart's soon-to-be vacated seat on The Daily Show, but don't call her a victim.
Following the announcement that Stewart would be stepping down, the Twitter hive mind immediately decided that Williams should take his place.
The Daily Show correspondent responded to the furor by thanking her fans for their support but saying she is "extremely under-qualified for the job," adding, "At this age (25) if something happens politically that I don't agree with, I need to go to my room and like not come out for, like, 7 days."

It is truly the end of an era.
During Tuesday's taping of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart announced that this will be his last year – of 16 – at the anchor desk.
While a statement from Comedy Central implied that the end is not necessarily nigh for The Daily Show, it is not yet clear whether the show will be canceled entirely or whether someone else will take up Stewart's post.
In any case, let's take a look back at some of Stewart's greatest takedowns both at and away from the Daily Show desk.
While no doubt fun to watch, the below are, most importantly, indicative of Stewart's well-honed ability to use satire as a legitimate, meaningful critique.
