While Williams apologized to viewers at the time, Stewart was unwilling to accept it.
"I do not tune in to the #1 national newscast to have my current events interrupted with technical hijinks! Williams, you deliver concise summaries of the day's events in a slick yet digestible and blandly produced package — much like Lunchables," Stewart quipped.
"And you will do it every day forever. Welcome to hell, Williams."

Stewart also mocked Williams for being a volunteer fireman, yet staying on prompter — saying the message to kids was "Stop, drop and be handsome."
"Know who I feel bad for? Your audience at home," Stewart said. "That high-pitched incessant noise has done terrible damager to their hearing aids."

Your move Stewart.
