During his segment on Egyptian TV host Bassem Youssef on Monday, Jon Stewart took a pointed swipe at NBC, defending Jay Leno in the process.
While the joke was an unrelated gag intended to lighten the tone of a fairly heavy segment, Stewart didn't throw it away either. He equated NBC with a failed, dictatorial empire and then noted, "A couple of bloggers just went nuts."
We assume he was referring to someone else. Watch the clip above.
