Have you been missing Jon Stewart recently? Yeah, me too. Have you spent many days staring out your window looking up at the sky wondering where he is, while singing "Somewhere Out There" from An American Tail? Oh, just me? Whatever; we all cope with loss in our individual ways.

No matter how you express your I-miss-Jon grief, you'll be happy to hear this breaking news: Stewart just signed a four-year deal with HBO! He won't be embarking on a new Daily Show-esque project just yet, but he will get things started by producing short videos that "view current events through his unique prism" for HBO Go and HBO Now (better make sure you sister/friend/ex hasn't changed their password!).

Stewart had this to say about his new gig: "Appearing on television 22 minutes a night clearly broke me. I’m pretty sure I can produce a few minutes of content every now and again." We can't wait to savor each meager minute of it!
