"Jason did more field pieces than any correspondent in the history of this program," Stewart said.

Jon Stewart said an emotional goodbye Thursday night to longtime Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones.

Jones, who served as the show's foreign correspondent for nearly 10 years, appeared Thursday night for the last time before departing to work on his upcoming TBS comedy pilot.

"Nothing makes my job easier than knowing there is someone there who I can always go to and always count on, and who's going to deliver the funny, the smart, the everything," Stewart said. "You were always that dude. I thank you very much."
