"The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" took home the Emmy for Best Variety Series at the 64th annual awards ceremony -- yes, again.

"The Daily Show" has won 16 Primetime Emmys since Jon Stewart took over in 2001 and has won this category 10 years in a row. They received four total nominations this year.

The Comedy Central show, headed up by Stewart, beat out its spinoff "The Colbert Report" as well as "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," "Real Time With Bill Maher" and "Saturday Night Live."

The stage was packed with "Daily Show" writers and correspondents as Stewart gave a very gracious and, of course, funny acceptance speech.

"Stephen Colbert, their show, what they did with Super PACs this year was ridiculous. Ridonkulous," Stewart said, honoring his fellow nominees. "Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, I spend way too much time on the Internet watching their shows. 'Real Time With Bill Maher' is constantly writing lines that I wish I had written. And without Lorne Michaels and 'Saturday Night Live,' I don't think any of us would be even doing this. So, I want to congratulate those guys."

"We make topical comedy, which has the shelf-life of egg salad. Like, nobody cares after five days. So to do this for 15 years and to have tangible proof that what we made wasn't just ephemeral is wonderful," Stewart said, before ending on a joke.

"Years from now when the earth is just a burning husk and aliens visit, they will find a box of these and they will know just how predictable these f---ing guys can be."
