The HBO and Jon Stewart project originally penned, and then announced back in November 2015 officially terminated in joint statements issued just days ago. Both sides agree the decision is the result of "technical issues." Adding, "that [production] proved too difficult given the quick turnaround and topical nature of the material." Whatever, that means?

Other Stewart and HBO projects may happen in the future

Nonetheless, there may still be meat on the bone. As both HBO and Stewart state, they have other projects in mind. Even so, Jon Stewart's parlay with HBO was anticipated to be important; therefore, it is curious as to what the specific roadblocks are about and if they will ever be resolved?

Meanwhile, the murmur around the entertainment industry is that Stewart's HBO deal was an evolution of Jon Stewart's iconic role as the host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show." A show that became a part of the American lexicon and Stewart hosted from 1999 until 2015.

Either love him or not, Stewart has opinions that stir American minds

Stewart's, sharp wit, sarcasm, and comedic genius made him a staple with audiences from all aspects of the prisms that blends humor, politics, and human foibles. Not least of which was his own as Stewart was not afraid to turn his, from time to time, acerbic mockery on, not only himself but the media and entertainment business as well. Making Stewart as complex as he is courageous, ironic and often tends to cut off his nose to spite his face.

No doubt it is precisely this mix of intellectual, informed, and brave satire that causes Stewart to be both deeply loved and even worshiped by fans and colleagues. Plus, unpopular by those who either lack a sense of humor or find themselves on the sharp end of the stick, Stewart just happens to be roasting over the flames of American folly.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on stage together

Stewart recently made an appearance on one time 'reporter' of "The Daily Show" and now the host of CBS' The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Inserting himself into Colbert's space and offering his opinions on the way the media especially, and the World, in general, chase after Trump [VIDEO]. A man who Stewart suggests just wants to "break-up," we [the media] just will not let him.

Colbert for all accounts was in on the joke and welcomed his old friend to join his stage. The skit was classic. Stewart, appearing a bit older than the young man who set the comedic landscape in a new direction when he started on Comedy Central almost twenty years ago. In this bit his form was as good as ever. Causing those on the side of enjoying the comedian's insightful wit to long for a time when he will return to America's airwaves on a regular basis.
