Jon Stewart's 10 Best Religion Moments

Jon Stewart announced his plan to step down as host of "The Daily Show" on Tuesday, leaving a post he has held for the better part of two decades.

"It's been an honor and an absolute privilege, the honor of my professional life," he said during Tuesday's show. He called his years of hosting an "incredible opportunity," but added, "it is time for someone else to have that opportunity."
