(Update: Stewart needed stitches.)
Jon Stewart sliced his hand open during a "Daily Show" bit in which he pretended to resign from the "Daily Show" for not hitting Anthony Weiner hard enough, and a Comedy Central spokesman said Stewart was feeling fine after getting six stitches.
Stewart explained in a mock news conference designed to look like Weiner's that he decided not to overhaul Monday's show, which taped at 6 p.m. ET, after Weiner's 4:30 Weinergate admission.
He prepared supposedly alcoholic drinks during the bit, and cut himself on a broken margarita glass.
Story continues after the videos:
"I'm probably gonna need to go to the hospital," Stewart laughed, still holding the broken glass. He later added, "I am bleeding out!"
Stewart named John Oliver his replacement — and Oliver noted that Stewart's injury looked like no joke. But he also stayed on script to chastise Stewart for taking it easy on Weiner, a longtime friend: "I would recommend you to grow a pair, take a picture of that pair and text it to yourself to remind yourself what balls look like," Oliver said.
Oliver later tried to introduce the show, but Stewart appeared to re-take his chair — with his hand wrapped up.
