Jon Stewart Finds A Way To Win Stephen Colbert's Emmy After All

On Sunday night's Emmy Awards, "The Colbert Report" ended Jon Stewart's 10-year "Daily Show" winning streak for Outstanding Variety Series. On Tuesday night's "Colbert Report," Stewart found a way to win it back.

As expected, Colbert opened his show Tuesday night with a thorough round of gloating about his two Emmy wins and was sure to mention that he's, "the only one who does this show," before panning to his "incredibly talented and attractive" staff. But when he called Jon Stewart to rub it in his face, Stewart had the nerve to pop out of the set's hidden door and only offer him the sincerest of congratulations.

That is, until Stewart figured out the one loophole that lets him take credit for it after all.

Watch the video above to see how Stewart nab's Colbert's Emmy, then watch his very sweet (real) reaction to "The Colbert Report"'s great achievement below:
