CNN’s Piers Morgan Claims ‘It’s Over for Jon Stewart’

Piers Morgan has had no problem publicly airing out his grievances over Jon Stewart lately, and he took another jab last night via Twitter.

Morgan claimed that Stephen Colbert’s successful night at the Emmys signified the end of Stewart’s career.

Last night,”The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central won for variety series. In doing so, Colbert ended “The Daily Show’s” decade-long winning streak in the category.

Colbert, however, got his start on “The Daily Show” as a correspondent. His popularity resulted in a spinoff in 2005, and “The Colbert Report,” which follows a very similar format to its predecessor, is now in its ninth season.

What isn’t breaking news is Morgan’s distaste for Stewart, as he earlier tweeted about Stewart’s frequent criticism of CNN coverage.

Oliver is a popular correspondent on “The Daily Show” and filled in as host of the show during the summer to many positive reviews from critics.

Stewart has yet to issue a response.
