Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert tackling Jon Stewart on his way to pick up his tenth consecutive Outstanding Variety Series category was a bigger suprise than the win itself. Stewart was especially self-deprecating which made the seemingly inevitable win that much more acceptable. Oh, and did Stewart use a bad word? I thought for sure that honour would go to Ricky Gervais.
