Just when you thought you weren't going to see Jon Stewart again before the 2016 election, he suddenly appears on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

He only appeared for a few minutes at the start of the episode, which makes you want more. BUT this is more than 50 seconds on Samantha Bee's show.

In a skit, Stephen Colbert finds Jon Stewart in a cabin in the woods, where he seems to be out the loop with all of the political news these days.

Being out of the political news loop right now isn't necessarily a bad thing, mind.

A character who we thought we were never going to see again since The Colbert Report wrapped up on Comedy Central in 2014.

We then saw the unexpected return of the classic Colbert Report segment "The Word", which features humorous or contradictory statements to what Colbert is saying on the screen next to him.
