Jon Stewart Sings Goodbye To New SNL 'Weekend Update' Anchor Michael Che

Michael Che was only on "The Daily Show" for a few months. Or, as host Jon Stewart put it, 58 business days.

But that didn't stop Stewart and the rest of the crew from giving him a fond farewell, luring him onto the set in the guise of doing a Joe Biden bit only to surround Che and let him know just what he meant to everyone on the show.

"It was great to work with you exactly three times," said correspondent Jordan Klepper.

It didn't end there. Che also got a highlight reel ... which wasn't very long ... and a farewell song at the piano, which also wasn't very long.

Check it out in the clip above.

Che is leaving "The Daily Show" to anchor the Weekend Update segment on "Saturday Night Live," which kicks off its 40th season on Sept. 27.

"The Daily Show" airs Monday-Thursday at 11:00 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
