The Fox News host then fired off a montage of the most notable interviews between himself and Stewart spanning the last decade. What ensued was a best of the two hosts taking pot shots at each other, which always seemed to have an undertone of respect.
Earlier this week, Stewart announced he will be departing his Comedy Central show at the end of the year. As for what will come next, he joked about having a couple of ideas, including working at fast food company Arby’s.
“Stewart’s a good guy; he’ll do well wherever he goes,” O’Reilly concluded. It remains to be seen whether there will be a farewell sparring match between the two.
