He's Back: Jon Stewart Will Reunite With Stephen Colbert to Cover the RNC

We have desperately missed Jon Stewart during this election season — but he’s coming back next week to cover the Republican National Convention.

Vulture reports that Stewart will reunite with longtime partner in crime Stephen Colbert next week to offer coverage of the RNC on The Late Show. Stewart will also stay on to cover the DNC a week later, although that won’t offer nearly as many fireworks as next week’s confab in Cleveland.

“Colbert is anchoring the Late Show from New York, so it doesn’t seem a stretch to imagine — or maybe the word is ‘pray’ — Stewart will be on location in Cleveland as a correspondent at the RNC,” Vulture speculates.

This would be quite a role reversal, of course, since in the past Colbert has served as a correspondent while Stewart has served as anchor.

Either way, we’ll know more about Stewart’s role on The Late Show by early next week.
