Sadly, Jon Stewart has moved on, but these talking heads on the Sunday shows are still with us. The screen shots above are from the final edition of The Daily Show, when Stewart was walking through their studios bidding his staff farewell and what a few of them looked like after they'd definitely had their fill of cable "news." All I can say is there are days I can definitely relate.
