Last night, Stephen Colbert visited The Daily Show to personally explain to friend and rival Jon Stewart why he's decided to end his show. No, it's not to host Late Night—remember, the in-character version of Colbert won't be making that jump.

It's because there's nothing left to accomplish, no world left to change. Stephen Colbert has already won TV, according to noted political commentator and reliable source Stephen Colbert. Now he's off to wherever the wind takes him.

We're really going to miss this guy.
