Jon Stewart's Rosewater, the directorial debut that took him away from The Daily Show this summer and set the stage for the ascension of John Oliver, is finally out.

Colbert is retiring the Report in 2015. Stewart is hinting at a move to "real" news. Larry Wilmore may blow our minds next year, but for now, comedy news is John Oliver's world. Even Jon Stewart is just living in it.
