Jon Stewart was quite ecstatic about returning to his regular job as host of The Daily Show, after taking a 12-week hiatus for directing his debut film Rosewater in Jordan.

While Stewart was away all summer, his right hand man and Daily Show correspondent, John Oliver took over the reigns.

Stewart was very happy to come back to his overly appreciative audience ("I've missed you so much") and in his distinct tone of mock-sincerity, expressed his gratitude for all the love he got from the fans and viewers of the Daily Show.

"You don't know what it's like out there in the real world. Nobody applauds every stupid f***ing little thing you do."

It didn't seem like Stewart had missed a day as he swiftly assumed his role as kingpin of political satire with the hot button issue of Syria. Without wasting any time he took the cleavers to the White House's plan to take military action against Syria.

"America taking military action against a middle-eastern regime, it's like I never left," he said.

"We have to bomb Syria because we're in 7th grade, and the red line that they've crossed is actually a d--k-measuring ribbon," Stewart added, talking about how the Syrian regime had gravely transgressed by American standards of polity, euphemistically speaking.
