Jon Stewart Returns to the ‘Daily Show’ – via Skype (Video)

Thursday's edition of the Comedy Central show will have an intense Jo(h)n-off

Jon Stewart will return to his "Daily Show" stomping grounds on Thursday night via Skype. The cameo will mark his first visit to the show since he took a temporary leave of absence earlier this month to direct a movie.

"Believe the Skype" the short teaser says, giving us a quick glimpse of a stubbly Jon Stewart, checking in from "somewhere far far away."
