Stephen Colbert has traditionally played something of a second-fiddle role to Jon Stewart. His show airs after Stewart’s, it often has to avoid some of the main stories from the previous day because everybody knows ‘The Daily Show’ will cover them, and his ultra-satirical brand of humor sometimes doesn’t have the same mainstream appeal as Stewart’s more obvious style.
Because of all those things, traditionally, Stewart has dominated at the Emmys. Not this year, though. This year, Colbert and his team cleaned up.
Check out Colbert giving exactly the sort of speech you’d expect from him in the video below.
